During the Easter holidays 2017, 60 lucky geography students, from years 10 and 11, accompanied by Miss Staines, Mr Farina, Mr Pieterse, Mrs Tredgett, Miss Bow and Mr Hopkins, visited Iceland.

The Greenway Challenge 2016 (173 images)

What can we say? The students of The Knights Templar School are a credit to themselves and to their parents. We had an amazing day today. Yes, it was hard work after mile 9, and some students (and staff!) found it hard to complete the course, but complete it they certainly did! Many people felt that we had bitten off more than we could chew, but the students and staff of our school proved everybody wrong, with all but a handful of students completing the whole course.

Year 10 Employability Skills Day – 8th May (46 images)

On Friday 8th May we held the Year 10 Employability Skills Day, attended by the full year group. We had over 25 external visitors for the day, delivering workshops, interviews and presentations on aspects of attending interviews and securing a new job. Companies represented on the day included Tesco, Waitrose, John Lewis, John O’Conner, Altro, Willmott Dixon, Airbus, and many individuals who volunteered their time to help our students. Workshops were designed to give an insight into preparing for an interview, handling questions, presenting yourself, and working in teams. The external volunteers used the same techniques as used within their business environment, and our students got a true feel for the actual selection process. Our students participated with great enthusiasm, entering into the spirit of the day, and gaining some great guidance, and experience. The interviewers and observers didn’t hold back, and certainly gave constructive feedback on what they saw, which certainly drove the points home. Many of our students were highly commended, and several employers identified individuals who had passed the process with flying colours, and would have been given job offers. This was a highly interactive day, with each student taking part in 5 activities. At the end of the day, each student will have learned a lot about themselves, about working with others, and a great deal about the whole recruitment process. All the employers said what a great day they had enjoyed, and how positive our students had been – some had been the best groups they had ever worked with!

Art department visit Fitzwilliam Musueum (9 images)

On Tuesday 20th January, Year 11 GCSE and BTEC students enjoyed a visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge where Ian, a gallery expert and artist in his own right provided information, inspiration and practical experience as a starting point for their exam/project preparation. Students were able to supplement this by exploring the Fitzwilliam’s collection and the current exhibition ‘Silent Partners’. With plenty of ideas to work from, we wish them all the very best of luck.
