Freshly baked food, bubbling volcanoes, dissections, creative showcases and sports were on show at Glebelands School as around 360 guests from primary schools near and far sampled Glebelands’ teaching and activities at their open evening on Thursday October 1.
Mrs Hutchinson, headteacher, gave a speech in the main hall setting out her vision for the future of Glebelands based around the code of respect and achieve. She described it as a happy school where individuals are valued and learning is the top priority.
Head boy Connor and head girl Abi spoke of how Glebelands had helped them throughout the past four years and Year 11 prefects proved exemplary tour guides for our prospective students and their parents. Students led tours throughout the evening, taking in all of the departments at Glebelands where active learning was being demonstrated. Experiments in the science labs, netball and football on the multi-sports court and visitors were invited to sample freshly-baked food in the Technology department.
After celebrating record GCSE results, now is a great time to be a student at Glebelands.
