SUTTON SCHOOL SUMMER FAIR
Friends Of Sutton School are hosting a spectacular SUMMER FAIR at Sutton School…
12th July 2019
3.30pm - 7.00pm
There will be lots of fun activities, stalls and food available including:
Bouncy Castles, Craft Stalls, Game Stalls, Ice Creams, A Raffle, Face Painting and even a BBQ. There will also be entertainment throughout the event.
Please come along and show your support…. everyone is welcome.
Out with the old, in with the new! Logo and school name change…
Over the next few weeks you will start to notice new school branding on badges, letters and a whole host of other places. The school will be known as Sutton School from this point onward.
The new logo keeps with the colour blue as a theme and depicts 3 figures representing the school and parents/carers supporting a central figure representing the pupil.
If you are looking to or have purchased a PE kit for September, you may receive the old logo which will be used until stocks are exhausted, old or new branded PE kit is acceptable. You do not need to buy new PE kit simply because the logo has changed.
If you have any further questions please contact the school office 01384 818670.
The rucksacks are packed and almost ready to be taken home for final preparation. One week and counting. Let's hope the weather picks up. Someone said they looked a little bit like parachutes!
On Tuesday, 22nd May 2019 a group of Year 11 pupils had the opportunity to have lunch at Pizza Hut, Merry Hill!
This was a reward for all their hard work during the term learning about how to collect data from Menus, using money, and ordering!
We all enjoyed munching on unlimited pizza and salad. It was an extremely social event as you will see from the pictures.
Students and Staff from Sutton School embarked on a sponsored walk on Wednesday 22nd May at Grange Park Dudley. Everyone had a great time and raised lots of money for a whole school summer trip to Weston Super Mare for a wonderful beach holiday.
A big thank you to everyone involved and to all of the staff and friends of Sutton School who helped co-ordinate such a fantastic event.

This week three groups of key stage 4 pupils have taken part in cycle training, all completing level 1 and some were able to move onto level 2 and go out on the local roads to practice their skills in real life situations.
In assembly our pupils were treated to a visit from author E. R. Reilly who talked about his three books British Spy Club, Tall Tales and One boy, One dream, One club.
Eamonn talked to our pupils about how he writes books, giving them 'top tips' for writing stories of their own and gave them all a challenge for the next story they write. Pupils who bought books had the privilege of a signed copy which is coming home with them today!
Have a look at Eamonn’s website for updates on his new releases, where you can read extracts from the books and see videos of Eamonn teaching children to write stories. https://er-reilly.co.uk Facebook E.R Reilly or Twitter @ERReillybooks
Year 10 pupils prepare for their expedition in June by getting to grips with their tents. After a few odd shaped attempts we all managed to put our tents up. Putting them back in their carry bags proved a bit more of a challenge. Well done! Parents and carers of the group should have recieved a letter yesterday inviting you to a meeting after school at 3.30pm on Tuesday 4th June to discuss the expedition arrangements. You should also have recieved a parenthub copy of the letter. Please be aware that this is for the first group only, not the whole of year 10.
On Thursday, 9th May 2019 a group of year 8 pupils got the pleasure of going to Cadbury World in Bournville, Birmingham. A trip organised by the Investigate Faculty; they had a jam packed day learning about the journey of a Cocoa Bean! Our trip covered cross curricular learning from working out the quantities of ingredients, to a 4D cinema trip on a 'Chocolate Rollercoaster'. During the visit pupils collected Maths information to share in a quiz, upon our return!
Year 10 pupils had their first experience of fitting their 65l rucksacks for their Duke of Edinburgh expedition. Let's hope for some sunny days on trail and under canvas.
Our Sutton's Got Talent winner for 2019 made it all the way to the front page of the Chronicle, and a mention in the Express and Star. Well done Latoyha.
Here they are… LIVE on Black Country Radio.
Students from Sutton School had a whole hour slot on Black Country Radio on the Sunday Omma & Chain Show with Billy Spakemon talking about SGT2019. All the students and staff had an amazing time and we cannot wait to be invited back onto the show and spend time in the studio.
Sutton School…. LIVE ON AIR.

Today, pupils in the Year 10 Community and Well-Being Pathway visited Wolverley Animal Centre. They practised their skills of handling small animals, helping with the daily feeding and cleaning and completing health checks. We met some very cool animals including Dizzy the chinchilla, Thor and Rodney the rats and lots of guinea pigs! Pupils worked really hard and showed off what they had learnt so far this year as part of their Practical Small Animal Care course. Thank you to Lucy Cull at the centre for sharing your knowledge and expertise and a huge well done to our Year 10 pupils- we can’t wait to come back!
On Tuesday 2nd April our Year 11 pupils visited Dudley College for their first transition visit in preparation for September. We toured the Broadway and Aspire campuses, met some of the tutors and took part in workshops in the print room. We also took part in a construction challenge where the task was to make the tallest structure from spaghetti, string, sellotape and a marshmallow. This was definitely a challenge! We also experienced lunch in the Refectory and even got to say hello to some ex-pupils which was lovely. Sutton pupils behaved wonderfully and showed us that they are ready for the next stage in their education. Thank you to all staff who supported during the day and well done Year 11!
Pupils in our Year 9 Community and Well-Being Pathway had a wonderful visit from Wild Acre Animal Rescue. Diane is a foster carer who currently looks after thirty-eight cats! We learnt about the many different circumstances in which Wild Acre have rescued animals, discussed why it is so important to care for animals properly and what to do if you think an animal is not being looked after properly. We also met Rosie the rescue Pug and two lovely foster cats, Clark and Jerry who seemed to enjoy exploring Room 20! Staff and pupils from Sutton donated a huge amount of food, toys and blankets to Wild Acre and really did us proud. Diane will be back soon to work with some of our Year 10 pupils- we can’t wait!
