Up Coming Events from Performing Arts #parenthub

Following an extensive and arduous audition process the final 12 acts have been chosen for Sutton's Got Talent which takes place on Tuesday 20th March at Brierley Hill Civic Hall. The show starts at 7PM and we're looking forward to seeing our students showcase their amazing talents in front of a packed house.

In further news the following Tuesday (27th of March) will see Sutton's School's very first charity night take place in the school hall. Working in-conjunction with Black Country Radio you will have the opportunity to see the finalists from Sutton's Got Talent perform alongside some of the finest local musicians and our very own Mr Hood (who will try to be at least better than average....😏😏)  The evening will be compared by DJ Billy Spakemon and John Langford so it will be a fun action packed evening that will also include refreshments and a raffle.

Keep watching the school website for further information and we look forward to seeing you support both events.

River Study #parenthub

Our very brave GCSE Geography students took part in a river study at Carding Mill Valley this term. Their task was to measure width and depth of different parts of the river as part of their GCSE field work component.  The weather was almost as challenging as the tasks in hand but the students absolutely thrived and had a fabulous day! Well done to my GCSE Geography students!

Medieval Doctors Surgery #parenthub

Today we recreated a medieval doctors' surgery where patients...well..pupils... arrived to the surgery with a range of illnesses! We discovered how disease and illness was treated in the middle ages and talked about the weird and wonderful world of medieval medicine!

The students loved the lesson that much that they sent a thank you card to the teacher.

Eruptive Education! #parenthub

8.2 Update

8.2 have been really busy this term learning about natural disasters. As part of this topic they completed a very exciting STEM activity, exploding a volcano! Pupils worked in pairs to make their volcano model out of paper mache, painted it to look like a real volcano and then took them outside to make them erupt.

We have also been working really hard in Maths learning about multiplication and division. As part of their lesson they had to use division maths problems to help them share sweets equally amongst their cupcakes. The best part of the lesson was getting to eat the cupcakes after! 

Computer Whizzes #parenthub

Enrichment Studies at Sutton.

Students in the 'computer building' enrichment group are getting hands on with computers. They have had the opportunity to learn about desktop computers in more depth, strip down components, cable devices and are currently building their own computer from scratch. Once completed each group will have a fully working computer complete with working components, operating system and desktop software. Awesome job everyone!

Operation Santa #parenthub

For the second year running Dudley CVS have given Sutton School students a magical Christmas and a huge smile on their faces. Staff from Sutton School met with Eileen Fielding yesterday and picked up a huge selection of gifts for pupils at our school. The organisation has been running for many years and with the help of businesses have collected donations to distribute to local causes and put smiles on children's faces across the borough. 

Today each student from Sutton School had the chance to meet with Santa choose a present from a big selection of donated gifts. Mr Charles headteacher, the staff and pupils are overwhelmed with the generosity which they have once again received from Dudley CVS and Operation Santa.

A Special Visit From Santa #parenthub

Sutton School was very honoured to have a surprise visit from Santa before Christmas Day. All of the students got the chance to visit Santa in his amazing Christmas Grotto. Everyone had a fantastic time before Santa had to get back in his sleigh and ride off into the sky back to the North Pole in time for Christmas Day. 

A massive thank you to CVS Dudley who kindly donated the gifts for our students and helped make their Christmas magical!

A Magical Christmas Fair #parenthub

Friends of Sutton School put on a magical Christmas Fair yesterday evening. There were lots of stalls, a raffle, amazing food and drink and most of all Santa Came to see all of the children in his Christmas grotto. It was a truly wonderful evening and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

A massive thank you to the Friends Of Sutton School for organising and running such a magical evening and to all the Sutton School Staff who assisted and helped make the event go so well.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
