LJS was visited by a team of inspectors on the 22nd & 23rd November, under the leadership of Malcolm Kirtley HMI. The overall feedback was extremely positive with the school being rated “Good” with several outstanding elements for Teaching & Learning, Personal Development, Well-being, Behaviour and Leadership.
LJS held a service to commemorate our two fallen heroes in ex-students Chris Maddison and Richard Turnbull, attended by families and friends. This took place in the Y11 Assembly on Remembrance Day, Friday 11 November and was deemed to be a great success with both families extremely grateful that their sons would have a permanent memorial on the main corridor of the new building. This ceremony also had a live feed which has had over 3,000 hits – with extremely positive feedback.
On the evening of Tuesday 27th September, Mrs McGrogan and Mrs Allan took 16 Year 11 students to The Arc in Stockton-on-Tees to watch Spanish director Almodóvar’s latest release Julieta. The students were fantastic and the evening was a great success. We hope to offer more opportunities like this in the future.
