More Sixth Form residential

We had a great time meeting our hero’s on Madame Tussaud’s and then came back to our accommodation to chill out. Today, we are enjoying a ride on the bikes before we travel home. See you all soon.


Sixth Form fun at Blackpool

We were up bright and early this morning. We have come into Blackpool to enjoy the local seaside environment. We have done some shopping, had a fish/sausage and chip lunch, and we are going to Madame Tussaud’s to see if we can spot the ‘Hulk’. We are also hoping the sun comes out,  so that we can go on the beach later.

Superstar Kyran arrives at school prom with Miss England

FORGET about stretch limousines and horse-drawn carriages, one teenager from the North-East has arrived at his school prom with more style than James Bond.

Kyran Richmond, from Chilton in County Durham, flew in to his Year 11 leavers’ party by helicopter and entered with a beauty queen on his arm.

The 16-year-old arrived at Hall Garth Hotel, near Darlington, and was greeted by model Alisha Cowie, 19, from Spennymoor, who was crowned Miss England last year.

Kyran, who has a rare brain disease for which there is no treatment or cure, was celebrating with fellow pupils from The Oaks Secondary School in Spennymoor.
