Michael Simm Special Olympics,

 


It has been a very busy summer for one of our Sixth Form pupils this summer holiday. 
Michael Simm took part in the Special Olympics which were in Sheffield in August.
Michael had being training hard for the Olympics, swimming most days after school and at weekends. All of Michael’s hard work paid off when Michael came away with Gold and a Bronze medal. 

We are so very proud of Michael on this massive swimming success.  

Prom 2017

This years Prom was held at The Royal Station Hotel on Thursday 13th July.

All the students looked fantastic and a brilliant night was had by all.

The selfie mirror was a big success with staff and students taken photos home with them that they will treasure for a very long time.

 Thank you to everyone that has supported with the Prom this year.

Make £5 Blossom with Youth Enterprise

'Students from Tweendykes Sixth Form took part in £5 Blossom with Youth Enterprise. They were partnered with a company called Netopian who gave them a loan of £150 to start a business. The students worked very hard throughout the year using their employability and enterprising skills. The business was named as Craft Crazy and they held Pop Up Shops selling gifts for Christmas, Mothers Day and Easter. They also formed a partnership with Bransholme Centre so that their business can continue into the future.

Jordan Gee, Michael Simm and Jack Smith who are part of the business delivered a presentation in front of 15 other Hull primary and secondary schools and their staff at the celebration ceremony of Youth Enterprise at the Guildhall. From the profit they made they were able to repay the £150 loan and also make a donation to the James Cracknell Youth Enterprise Trust and Duchenne Charity.

Humber Education Trust

                                                                             

 

Dear Parent/Carer and/or Community Member,

 

You will probably have heard that many schools are now forming Multi Academy Trusts and are no longer part of the local authority.  Our school would like to join with a group of other schools to form a Trust called Humber Education Trust (HET).

 

The schools that wish to make up the new HET are:

 

·         Maybury Primary School

·         Tweendykes Special School (pending governors’ approval)

·         Parkstone Primary School

·         Woodland Primary School

·         Clifton Primary School

·         St Nicholas Primary School

·         Neasden Primary School

·         Ganton School

·         Christopher Pickering Primary School

·         Broadacre Primary School

·         Gillshill Primary School

·         Adelaide Primary School

 

This is an exciting time for our schools and a great opportunity for us to join together and create a very strong partnership. We already work closely and if we form a Trust we can work even closer and help each other even more.  We want to be strong together but still be separate schools and this is what we would like to do when we form the Trust.

 

We want people to tell us what they think about these plans and are asking pupils, parents, staff, governors and the wider community.

 

On Thursday 30th March at 9.30 am at Tweendykes School we have arranged for parents and community members to come in and tell us what they think.  We will also be able to answer any questions you may have.

 

We look forward to seeing you at this event and if you want more information you can visit our website at www.tweendykes.co.uk

 

Yours sincerely

Berni Moorcroft                                                  John Barnes

Head teacher,                                                    Chair of Governors

Merry Christmas

We have had a really lovely few weeks in school in the build up to Christmas – I have been so proud of all our pupils

Despite the bad weather the carol service went ahead with the Reverend coming to us. The choir, the nativity and all the readers did a fantastic job.

The highlight however was this year’s concert “Christmas with the Aliens”- I don’t think I can remember a concert where so many pupils shone- we really have a talented group of young people !!

From all the staff at Tweendykes I want to wish you and your families a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year- see you all in 2017 !

Christmas Prop Making

Christmas prop making sessions

As part of our commitment to achieving the Arts Mark and the Leading Parent Partnership Award we invited parent into school to work with Claire West our Art Teacher.  Some parents have now attended 3 sessions and started to make props for our Christmas Concert.  As you can see from the photographs work is well in place but we still need more props.  If you are able to help come along to our next session please feel free to do so it is on Thursday 3rd November between 10am and 12 noon.
