Transcript

  • 1. This power point is about the school in general and the form groups from year 7 -13 and some of the school trips you can go on and a bit about the library and other activities and many more
  • 2. LETS START WITH A BREAF HITORY OF THE SCHOOL The foundation stone for the new St. Aidan's Church of England High School was laid on a green field site in Oatlands Drive by the Right Reverend John Moorman, Lord Bishop of Ripon in June 1966. Until 1967 church school education in Harrogate was in the hands of Christ Church Secondary School for boys and St. Peter's Secondary School for girls. Both were secondary modern schools. As the population of Harrogate increased during the early '60s and the demand for better facilities gathered pace it was clear that the provision for Church of England education in Harrogate was becoming inadequate. The vision of a new Church of England school came into being largely through the vision of the late Canon Roger Baines, a long serving Vicar of St. Peter's.
  • 3. The new St. Aidan's Church of England Secondary School was opened by the Bishop of Ripon in September alongside Wheatlands School. The first Headteacher was Miss Hindmarsh, followed by her erstwhile Deputy Head Ken Stott. In 1973 St. Aidan's became a full 11 - 18 mixed comprehensive school and in the same year began its wonderful nationally renowned Sixth Form association with St John Fisher Catholic High School. The school rapidly expanded and took over the building of Wheatlands School in the mid '70s; the then pupils of Wheatlands Secondary School moved to a new site, which is today known as Harrogate Rossett High School. On the last day of Wheatlands' existence a part of the school was destroyed by fire, leaving the Clock Tower for many years in isolated splendour. The space was gloriously filled in 1997 by the award winning Constance Green Hall, named in memory of a generous Harrogate philanthropist.
  • 4. Mr Wood the curent headtecher Mr wood became the head in 2011 and now has been head for 3 years as of September 2014
  • 5. THE SCHOOL LIBRARY The St. Aidan's Library is situated on the first floor of the main school building. All pupils are members and can borrow up to four books at a time. The loan period is three weeks, but books may be renewed by asking the Librarians. Facilities This modern well equipped facility has fiction and non-fiction books, periodicals, newspapers, local 'what's on information, prospectuses, computers, a scanner and a private study area. The opening hours are 8.30am - 5.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am - 4pm on a Friday, although it is always closed to all students during morning registration. Events STAR Group - a monthly reading group held on the first The Librarians Thursday of every month for an hour after school in Mrs Roth Head of library the Library. If you enjoy reading and like to discuss Mrs Fuller Asst Head of library books, this is an excellent opportunity to meet like minded people. Click on the link for more information or ask one of the Librarians. We also frequently have visiting authors and book sales which are advertised around school.

  • 9. YEAR 10-11 SCIENCE KS4 Courses All Science courses in Years 10 and 11 are courses in 'Balanced Science' which simply means that all students study elements of the Science subjects Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Balanced Science is offered in two ways which allows the best one suited to an individual pupil's needs to be selected. All choices involve the study of Science for the same number of periods a week unless they opt for the Pre-Vocational course or GNVQ ICT at GCSE where they will only have three periods of Science. The Separate Sciences - Biology, Chemistry & Physics This is a course which is taken by those who are aiming for a career in the Sciences or in other areas where entry requirements are high and competition is strong. The course has a higher content that the Co-ordinated Science option and because of this is a more demanding choice. Success in each of the individual Sciences will lead to three GCSE certificates. Co-ordinated Science Double Award In this course the individual Science subjects are taught separately. The syllabus is a reduced content version of the three Separate Sciences. A good result in the course will be an adequate preparation for students to continue with the Science at Advanced level. The final GCSE Certificate will be a 'double award' being credited as one GCSE in Science and one GCSE in Additional Science.
  • 10. Single Award This is a reduced version of the Double Award syllabus taken in half of the curriculum time leading to a single GCSE in Science. In all courses laboratory work is assessed during the course and the National Curriculum requirements for practical work are covered through investigation work.

  • 12. St Aidan's & St John Fisher Associated Sixth Form
  • 13. HISTORY . The Associated Sixth Form was created in 1973 as a unique venture in ecumenical education. Its aim is to provide a Christian environment in which all students who wish to remain at school beyond the age of 16 are given the opportunity to fulfil their academic potential. This is achieved by pooling the resources, staff expertise and experience of two outstanding schools for the benefit of all sixth form students.

This trip has been taking place for well over 30 years and gives all pupils in Year 7 the opportunity to study the history, geography and religious background of the area. Hear are some photos from the 2012 trip
  • 28. The Ullswater Centre is based on the North West shore of the lake and is set in 18 acres of woodland. The accommodation is comfortable and the buildings are set in grounds that have a long waterfront on the shore of the lake. The Instructors are all well qualified and experienced and able to provide a challenging, yet rewarding experience for all participants. Courses at the Centre are tailor-made to the requirements of schools. We would follow the ‘Adventure and Challenge’ model which encourages young people to push themselves beyond their expectations and develop learning about self and others. The location allows us to make full use of the lake, including such activities as kayaking, canoeing, raft building and rowing. In addition, hill walking, rock climbing, gorge walking, scrambling and mountain navigation are all available, with the opportunity of staying in a high mountain hut as part of an expedition. The week long course is based in stunning scenery under Helvellyn - one of The Lake District's highest peaks.
