Boxford visit

A group of year 10 and 11 students travelled a total of 200 miles in one day in order to visit Boxford Ltd at a factory near Huddersfield. We saw some amazing equipment that produces machines like ours in the workshop. All the staff were extremely friendly and stopped to explain how things were manufactured and finished. Many thanks to Howard and Steve who took us around the building and looked after us. They answered hundreds of questions but we forgot one. Can we come again?

Filmclub’s Talent Development, at The Oaks

Every year FILMCLUB takes on over 100 FILMCLUB Members from all over the country and gives them a priceless opportunity to take their first steps into the world of film. This is our Talent Development programme.

Three of our Students have been chosen by Filmclub to take part in a year long Development Programme, specialising in Writing Reviews.

Matthew, Reece and Oliver and I have travelled to London several times already this school year, to take part in training with other Filmclubbers from schools across the country.

At the end of the year our boys will graduate with an AQA Level 1 certificate in writing reviews.

Good luck boys……
