Last week saw the winners of the Educate Awards 2018 announced, at a glittering ceremony at the stunning Anglican Cathedral.
This year Gateacre School were up for an incredible 4 awards! Although though not lucky enough to win all the awards we did manage to win the Leadership Team of the year and were joint runners up for the Most Inspirational School of the Year.
The Drama Department have had a very busy start to the new school year with 6 theatre trips and a visiting performance within 7 weeks of school!
Over 100 students from all year groups have attended performances, ranging from the classic 'Blood Brothers', set in Liverpool, telling the story of twin brothers, separated at birth, who go on to lead very different lives before their paths cross once more, to lesser known productions such as 'Beyond Belief' by local physical theatre company Timesis, a story which was a powerful and moving journey into the unnerving future of life and death in our social media obsessed, technology blinkered society.
We had a great day celebrating Our Community, with a host of local arts & crafts vendors, local produce, health & wellbeing information stalls, community groups as well as our own staff and students, it was a fun packed day for all the family!
Four weeks, twenty three students, two countries and one hell of an Adventure!
