Fieldwork at Spurn Point

Over the past two days, both Admiral and Skipper have visited Spurn Point on the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire to investigate the coastal hydrology that has formed the unique environment.

They have also looked at the weather and climate and the effects of recent storms which have affected the habitat and landscape. All of our students worked exceptionally well, even with the North Sea gale making things a bit more of a challenge. But it was not problem for our Outward Bound practised students.

We’d like to thank the staff at the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for hosting us! Well done XP!

Here are a few snaps of our budding scientists and great ambassadors at work:


Starting a PTA is a very good way to bring together parents, teachers and others to raise money, to support the school and make a difference for the children. It provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal and is open to all parents and teachers even if they only have a small amount of time available to get involved.

Usually, a PTA is formed to fundraise for the benefit of the pupils at the school. Another important role for a PTA is as a way for parents to become more involved with their children’s school. Working in partnership with the school, a PTA can help to develop strong links between home and school.

Our first meeting will be on December 1st in the sports hall.
