On Wednesday 14th December 2016 the students from years 9 and 10 SLC visited Brockholes Wetland Nature reserve. Whilst there they worked in groups to complete a bug hunt, in which they searched leaf litter and trees to find various minibeasts and invertebrates and then tried to identify them. In the afternoon they were shown how to use binoculars correctly and they then used these new skills to look for and identify different birds that cohabitate in the wetlands area. The visit will link closely with the current GCSE learning that is taking place in their science lessons enabling the students to see real life examples of the science curriculum in practice.See more

I won the Mayor for a Day competition by answering a simple question: “The legal voting age should be changed from 18 to 16 because...” with the answer: “16 and 17 year olds are just as passionate about important issues as adults can be and some of these issues can directly affect young people.” As a result, I spent a day with the Mayor. Miss Heaton and I were picked up from in the mayor's car, and we started the day at an eco-schools conference, where schools and organizations spoke about what they were doing to help the environment; we then had afternoon tea at the Mayor's parlour, after which we visited a primary school to deliver a presentation on what they needed to know about the Mayor. We were then taken back to school at the end of the day. It was a very good day and I highly recommend entering the competition next time to anyone into that sort of thing.See more

The students were exploring a topic called ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ which helps break down the stigma of boys showing their emotions. We created a dance piece to Clown by Emeli Sande as we thought the lyrics reflected the issues covered in the story really well. The students worked so hard to rehearse and perfect the performance dedicating lunch times and after school to make sure it was just right. The judges commented that the emotional connection the performers showed to the piece was outstanding and this was the overall factor in their success.
They beat off some really tough competition from Fred Longworth High School , Abraham Guest Academy, Standish High School, West Leigh High School and Hawkley Hall High School to gain 1st place with their performance.See more

What is a school reward system?
School reward systems are where students are awarded points. This might be for working really hard on a piece of work, or based on something like extra curricular involvement, attendance, grades or sticking to the school rules. Students are then often rewarded in some way based on how many points they have received from the school with something such as a voucher or a school trip.
We have recently replaced our house point system with a new electronic reward system; ePraise. This followed on from some suggestions raised at a student council meeting. ePraise is a school rewards system designed to motivate students. It works in a similar way to traditional school reward systems, except that the points are claimed and/or awarded online.
Although still in the early stages, ePraise has proven to be a huge hit with both staff and students! Click here to take at look at ePraise.

The programme called the Wonder of Numbers restores the student's confidence and refreshes the knowledge from their primary education. Over 6000 students in over 50 Primary schools all improved their maths performance by more than 30% using the Wonder of Numbers approach over the last 3 years plus hundreds of secondary school students.
What is different when compared with normal teaching approaches?
The Wonder of Numbers supports all curriculum mathematics and by doing so lifts the performance of the students involved.
Therefore, we have today run the initial session with 90 of our key stage 3 students and the day was a resounding success!See more
45 students had a thoroughly enjoyable day at Quarry Bank Mill in Styal Cheshire. The students visited 3 areas of the historical site including the Mill, the Apprentice House and the village. In the mill the students had a tour around the different areas of the mill. They students saw the working conditions that children/workers would have endured in the early 19th century. The mill guides provided a brief experience of how loud the machines were and we discussed the impact that this would have on the workers. They all really enjoyed the visit to the Apprentice House. Here they saw how the children who worked for the Greg family, lived and experienced the school room, the sleeping quarters and the food that they received. I think the majority of the students had a greater appreciation of the lives they have today rather than those of children in the early 19th century.See more

Over summer he competed in some important races and achieved the following results:- North Regional 14yr old Champion, National 14yr old Champion, 13yr old British Champion (3rd yr running now), 13yr old European No6 and 13yr old World No8.
Fantastic results you must agree! This was Paddy's first year on the European and World circuit and we didn't know he would do as well as he has, Paddy set himself certain goals and has gone beyond them and as a result has now been invited to attend the British Cycling Talent Team selection day on Saturday 1st October at Manchester's new Indoor track which if successful he will be on the first step towards the Olympic Development Program!
I will keep you updated on his progress and thank you for your support.

Rose Bridge High School has won an award for being the most improved specialist school in the country.
Former Headteacher Jack Pendlebury received the special certificate at the home of the British Academy Film and TV awards in Piccadilly Circus.
He said "It was a very dignified occasion and high profile. Obviously we're very pleased but this award wasn't just for one year but for the progress made in the last three. We're among the top specialist science schools in the country and that's the fruition of the plans that came together including making sure we had the right curriculum for every child, with the best teachers and high quality levels of learning support".
Elizabeth Reid, chief executive of Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, said "It is important that we recognise success in the education system. It is the product of hard work, good leadership and innovation approaches to teaching and learning. This is the success that enables more young people to reach their potential".
"Good schools have a story to tell".See more
