New students get a glimpse of school life
Year 6 children from schools across Oldham borough and beyond got a taste of secondary school life.
All the children who will be starting at The Radclyffe School in September spent the day sampling lessons in Science, Maths, History, PE and Art. As a special literacy treat, the school’s author-in-residence Mark Wright was in school. Mark is best known as the author of Doctor Who audiobooks. He worked with pupils to encourage reading, sharing his childhood experiences and sharing how he creates new monsters when writing.
All the pupils got to meet their new Year Manager, Mrs Thompson and their Personal Learning Guides. At the school, all students meet one-to one with a member of staff who mentors and supports them throughout their time at the school.
During their lunch break the pupils were entertained with a performance of the school’s summer show, Aladdin.
And it isn’t just the pupils that are catered for. On the following evening the school opened its doors to its new parents, to let them see the superb facilities at the Hunt Lane building.
