Celebrating Success

Following last week’s article about Duke of Edinburgh, We are pleased to share the news that DA and SB have been invited to Buckingham Palace as part of the Dof E celebrations in May.

On 22nd March staff and pupils at the Sleaford base walked a mile for Sports relief. They also held a cake sale at break and participated in a mile of pennies (needless to say it wasn’t quite a mile!!). Total raised came to £67.50. Many thanks to JD for organising this and to those staff who baked cakes to sell.

The career’s fair held in Lincoln on Monday 19th March was a big success. The workshops on CV writing and interview techniques etc were particularly well received by our pupils. It was felt that having less pupils by dividing the fair across two bases meant that the atmosphere was calmer and therefore more productive.  The career’s fair in Boston will be held on 23rd April. Many thanks to YP and her team for the organisation of the event.

Boston Year 11 Trip

For this year’s end of year 11 trip we took our Boston students to Skegness for a day filled with fun activities. The day started with 5 students and 3 members of staff taking a nice drive with a very varied selection of music, singalongs and lots of giggles.

We arrived in “Skeg-Vegas” full of atmosphere and made our way to the pier for a quick snack then headed towards the adventure centre onto the activities. We started off with the escape room experience. 

KS3 Integration Day at Amber Hill

On the 20/6/18 the KS3 students from both Boston and Sleaford bases took a trip out to the new Amber Hill base to see what stage they have got to, we saw a wide variety of tasks going on including door fitting, plumbing, electrics, fencing, decorating and more. We then ventured onto the new school field and had a chance to chill out and explore their new space.

Message from the head teacher:

I didn’t ever expect to be attending a Buckingham Palace garden party and feel honoured and privileged to have done so. On reflecting on this it demonstrates how Pilgrim continues to develop as an outward looking school – the D of E programme is just one example. 

David Walliams gets in touch!

NB forwarded a powerpoint presentation of illustrations and writing compiled by AR, a pupil from our Boston base for David Walliams and asked him if he would comment on these. In reply she received a letter and a signed photo.  An invitation for David to visit our school was also made and indications are that he is aware of it and has shown an interest in the future if possible.

Our nice new MPV delivered today.

We have taken deliver y of our first ever Pilgrim Minibus.  It looks rather smart and will expand our opportunities to transport our pupils for additional enrichment opportunites and D of E excursions etc.
