Another week at Samuel Laycock!

The Spring term is well underway now and, as ever, here at Samuel Laycock, we’ve had a busy week or so.

Here’s what it looked like for us…


Last week we welcomed Kevin and Alice from Swing North, as Performing Arts pupils tried their hand (and feet) at Lindyhop!

Also last week, pupils from the Food Technology Pathway and the Livings Skills Pathway visited Stamford Court Care Home.

took baked goods for the residents made by us and some games to play.


The residents enjoyed the company and enjoyed the biscuits and banana cakes.

Pupils in the Performing Arts Pathway have been working with The Anne Frank Trust.

We were chosen this year to host the Holocaust Memorial Exhibition at our school.

Jonathan McKee from the Trust showed the students what life was like for Anne and her family during the Holocaust.

Moving on to this week, the pupils in the Living skills Pathway went and explored the amenities within the local community.

They visited a few local shops to see what they had to offer, and discussed the differences between local shops and supermarkets, putting their communication skills into practice when buying some items.

Also this week, after assembling a new trolley for the Horticulture pathway, the pupils put it to good use by organising a plant sale around school.

Catherine and Colin from the Department for Work and Pensions came to carry out mock interviews with Years 10 and 11…

…They were very impressed and said that we had all done a really good job.

Elsewhere, the boys football team managed to secure 4 wins and 2 draws, which is an excellent effort considering the challenging teams they were up against!

Finally, Samuel Laycock have been in the news this week. See for yourself!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
