Historical artefacts, bubbling volcanoes, dissections, explosions, creative showcases and sports were on show at Glebelands School as around 360 guests from primary schools near and far sampled Glebelands teaching and activities at their Open Evening on Thursday 6th October.
Mrs Hutchinson, Headteacher, gave a speech in the main hall setting out her vision for the future of Glebelands based around the code of ‘Respect and Achieve’. She described it as a happy school where individuals are valued and learning is the top priority.
Head Boy, Luke, and Head Girl, Erinn, spoke of how Glebelands had helped them throughout the past four years and Year 11 prefects proved exemplary tour guides for our prospective students and their parents. One parent described their guides as “very welcoming, knowledgeable, confident and full of positivity about the school; they were really inspiring”.
Students led tours throughout the evening, taking in all of the departments at Glebelands where active learning was being demonstrated. These included experiments in the science labs, netball and football on the multi-sports court and a musical performance for the visitors to enjoy.
After celebrating record GCSE results, now is a great time to be a student at Glebelands School.
