Sutton School celebrated the achievements of all students in style at their 2017 Presentation Evening. The Sutton Fest 17 Show showcased amazing acts from present and past pupils as well as acknowledging the amazing achievements of our students throughout this year and their whole time at Sutton School. We are especially proud of our year 11 leavers who have worked so hard this year and we celebrate their success and wish them well for the future.
A big thank you to all of the staff at Sutton School who helped make Presentation Evening an unforgettable night. Well Done Everyone!

We had a great day at Gulliver's World, almost every ride was tackled, the pupils loved it. The day was rounded off with a great meal at Frankie and Benny's. Then it was back to the hostel for a video and chillout time while Mr Sant spent an hour doing a blog post over a very slow internet connection, that someone deleted.. happy days... The film we watched sent many pupils to sleep so we were all happy to start packing in preparation for the 'off' the next morning. Enjoy the pictures :)
In School Activities - Day 5
Animal Experience and Barbeque
Our parent governor Mrs Chapman has brought in a collection of animals for the children to see. We got chance to see ferrets, a python, scorpions, tarantulas, an Iguana, a turtle and an African land snail. Children and staff pushed themselves out of their comfort zones and were very brave. We saw some very courageous and fearless children hold every animal they possibly could, we have definitely witnessed children who could potentially work with animals, they demonstrated a real flair! We all thought the animal experience was fantastic, thank you so much Mrs Chapman for your time and for bringing in your wonderful array of (some of) your pets for us to see.
A big thank you to Mrs Ashby and Mrs Page who have provided everyone with a wonderful barbeque. We have eaten burgers, hotdogs, doughnuts and popcorn! The weather has been good enough again for us to play outside on the field. A wonderful ending to an adventure filled week! Thank you to all staff for their extra hard work this week.
In School Activities - Day 3 - Art Focus Day
Students had a great time in school getting creative and making stunning under the sea artwork.
Students also got the change to build tents, participate in other craftwork activities like T Shirt Printing and then we all stopped for Ice Cream as an afternoon treat... yum yum!
Children have designed their own animal t-shirts ready to wear for their animal experience on Friday. Children in school also showed some good survival skills by putting up tents in school. It got quite competitive!
Liverpool Trip - Day 5
We have had an amazing time in Liverpool and surrounding area. Currently we are on route to the World museum and then will be hopping on the coach to head home. Its been a great adventure and we are all looking forward to telling you all about it when we return back to school this afternoon.
Just arrived at the World Museum Liverpool.
We're all really excited and eager to explore!
We are aiming to be back at school between 3:30-4-00.
See you soon!😊
Stay tuned for more updates...
Seaside Itinerary - Friday, Day 5
- Breakfast in Bangor
- Day in Betws-y-Coed
- Lunch in Betws-y-Coed
- Return home (ETA - 14:30)
We had a belt bursting breakfast in Bangor and then headed for Betws-y-Coed. At Betws-y-Coed we ate ice creams and shopped until we dropped.
Mr Poulton took over the artistic (N.B. The words artistic and Mr Poulton have, never before, appeared in a sentence together!) mantle from Mrs Duckworth and photographed some breathtaking scenery.
Seaside Day 4 Thursday
Not so Happy Valley
We arrived in good time after having a hearty breakfast. Only to find the the toboggan slide was closed for emergency repairs. Somewhat disappointed we headed for the cable cars and they had stopped operating due to high winds. Determined to make the most of the day the resilient Sutton pupils and staff walked to Llandudno Pier.
Opened in 1886 and 700m long! We had a leisurely walk along the pier, played games, ate rock and spent money, on what seemed at the time, irresistible items.
Llandudno Tram and The Great Orme
We marched to the tram, arriving just before 40 primary school pupils. To our joy the tram was working and 20 minutes later we reached the summit of the Orme. It was, indeed, windy. Ice creams, drinks and making the most of the Great Orme activities we made our way back down to the beach.
Life's Two Beaches
More paddling and skimming stones.
From the safety of the shore, Mrs Harvey and Mr EdneyEvans watched with intrepidation as canoes were mounted and launched into the calmness of The Solent. Within a matter of moments, the calmness had disappeared, only to be replaced with a scene of chaos! Despite some minor launching issues (well, quite a few actually!), all canoed with vigour into The Solent! And yes.... everyone returned safely!
Now sitting on the beach, toasting marshmallows and watching the sun set! A perfect evening with a wonderful group.
Understand your opponent!
Thursday (Day 4)
Today we are heading for The Great Orme. Activities will include the following (depending up on the weather, which is fine as I type):
- Happy Valley for crazy golf, tobogganing etc
- Cable car to the top of The Great Orme
- Cafe, shop and fossils!
This evening we will eat in Llandudno.
Good Morning everyone!
Wednesday (Day 3)
Birthday Boy - This morning Tremaine became a teenager. The celebration started with cake, song, a card and presents.
Catching crustaceans - Off to the pier at Beaumaris for a spot of 'crab fishing'. We bought crab nets and bait, smelly. We were given a free box of biscuits to celebrate Tremaine's Birthday (generous folk in Beaumaris). Then - look at the pictures, they say it all.
The Boat Ride to Puffin Island - All on board for the boat trip. Glorious weather and a cooling sea spray.
Life's a beach - Suntan lotion, paddling, playing in the sand and relaxing.
Fish and Chips and Aerial Bombardment - There is no better way to eat fish and chips. Both humans and seagulls agree.
Mrs Duckworth continues to demonstrate her creativity!

A great day spent at Chester Zoo in the blazing sun. We got lost a few times after following Miss Mascall's directions, Mr Adams made a fashion error, and the quote of the day came from Anaya and the 'water sausages' growing in the reeds. The boat trip was awe inspiring and the rhino, well, what a beasty! CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO VIEW THE SLIDESHOW
