LJS exam results stand firm against changes in the exam system nationally
Successful outcomes at LJS for Class of 2017
Despite yet more significant changes to the exams and qualifications framework nationally, Year 11 students at Laurence Jackson School, Guisborough have matched the high levels of achievement from previous years.
Cleveland Police and Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have confirmed that there has been significant progress in an investigation into allegations regarding a member of staff at a school in the local area.
Police confirmed earlier this week that a 24-year-old man from Stockton had been arrested in relation to indecent images of children.
In view of the recent tragic fire in London, I would like to reassure parents that no combustible materials were used in the construction of the building and a sprinkler system and fire alarm operates throughout the new building.
Students are familiar with the fire evacuation procedures, which have been fully tested, although we will carry out a further simulation exercise before the end of term.
Over recent months several students and staff have been working hard producing creative writing and art work as part of the Guisborough Town Hall Gateway project.
The outcome for their outstanding commitment and contribution was a four page feature in Coastal View and Moor News with 24 students having their work published in the paper which went out to over 26,000 readers.
Congratulations to three Laurence Jackson School pupils who competed in the U14 National Finals for Grangetown Netball Club this weekend. Erin W, Ruby W & Katharine B (Vice Captain) all took to the court and played against the best teams in the Country. To be one of the 18 teams at the finals the squad had to qualify through County and Regional Leagues. This competition saw the squad finishing 8th in the Country, missing out on 7th place by one goal. This is a massive achievement for these students and is the best position the club has ever finished in a national final.
