Year 9 Careers

As part of our careers topic year 9 had a trip to look round Barnsley College today.  They were impressed with the excellent facilities and it got them thinking about what they want to do when they leave school. 

Year 9 Community Day

Year 9 went to Locke Park for Community Day this year. The pupils and staff helped to do some gardening with the friends of Locke Park. Pupils showed real team work and worked really hard. They certainly made a difference to their local community. Well done! 

Careers Morning

This morning Springwell held its second careers morning.  As part of our careers topic in PSHE pupils from KS3 and 4 and some pupils from our Alternative Academies visited different stalls, took part in activities and chatted to professionals about their futures.  There were lots of different further education and apprenticeship providers (Barnsley College, Brathay, aspire Igen etc.) there for pupils to chat to and get advice from.

The army were there and put the pupils through their paces with some drill.  The pupils loved it and it was great to see pupils from the Alternative Academies and school working together and showing great team work.  It was a very successful morning.

KS3 Shakespeare Festival 

The pupils have worked so hard over the past few weeks in rehearsals.  The hard work has paid off and the pupils produced an amazing performance of Hamlet for Springwell’s Shakespeare Festival. A huge well done to each and every one of you. I’m so proud of you all!
