Good afternoon - Friday 28th October

Good afternoon, welcome to Staindrop Academy, County Durham

Hungary sports visit

A group of Y10 students had the opportunity to travel to Hungary to represent Durham County in a competition that has been ran for over 20 years. The boys competed against counties from Romania and Hungary in beach football. It was a new experience for our team to play beach football but they adapted very well. They managed to beat the Romanian team 3-2 and were unfortunate to lose on penalties after drawing 4-4 with the Hungarian team. All of the boys played very well considering their lack of experience in this format of the game.

Raby Castle pleasure ride

On 5th June our music teacher Miss Clark took several students to the annual Raby Castle pleasure ride. Great fun was had by all, and the good weather helped to ensure that the event was a success.

Good Food Show

On Friday 17th June Miss Fowler and Miss Clement took a group of food technology students to the good food show in Birmingham. The students behaved impeccably as always, and were a credit to the school. Highlights of the day were of course seeing Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood in action.

Macmillan coffee morning

The Macmillan coffee morning hosted by Mrs Trottman, Miss Fowler and Miss clement was held on Friday 30th September, and £251.61 was raised. Lots of effort was put in by both staff and students, with the Year 9 health and social care group helping to organise and run the event. Food technology students also helped, baking lots of lovely treats. Winners of the cake competition were Amelia Wailes from KS3, Daisy Pickard from KS4 and Mrs Caulfield from the staff.
