Saturday, 17th May, 2014 - EBDOG Conference comes to Blackpool

The Education Building Development Officers Group held its national conference here in Blackpool after many years travelling round other towns and cities. With the spotlight on constructing new school buildings to match the numbers of children going through primary schools it was appropriate that Bispham and Collegiate students and staff attended the conference by the invitation of Blackpool Council. (Both schools are currently in the process of joining together on the Bispham site whilst a brand new 14 million build to be known as Blackpool Aspire Academy takes place on the existing Collegiate site following the demolition of Collegiate).

The conference was thrilled to hear the voices of Bispham High School's Gospel Choir and after the three songs a rapturous round of applause was given only to be repeated again following Councillor Ivan Taylor's warm welcome to all delegates. The Worshipful the Mayor Councillor Val Haynes congratulated the choir and thanked them for all their hard work.

Collegiate students joined the conference for the whole day and attended workshops, seminars and lectures by key speakers. The presentation on 'Lets talk looking at design from another angle' presented by Elizabeth Jarman was a wonderful insight into how to use the senses better when designing rooms and areas. This contribution was well appreciated by Collegiate students Natasha, Erin, Emil and Rhys.

The Mayor's audience included her Consort, Alan Haynes, Cllr Ivan Taylor (Blackpool Council Cabinet Member for Education), Carl Baker (Deputy Director for Children's Services), Ian Morris-Iliffe (School Organisation, Blackpool Council), Mike Green (Head of capital at the Education Funding Agency) and representatives from Carillion PLC, Trustees of the Old Boys Grammar School War Memorial Foundation, Fylde Coast Academy Trust, Highfurlong Special School, Bispham and Collegiate High Schools.

Following the short ceremony, refreshments were provided by Highfurlong Special School in their hall.

Thursday, 8th May, 2014 - North West Regional 5-a-side Football Tournament

team group

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Years 10 and 11 girls represented Blackpool in a regional 5-aside football tournament on Thursday 8th May; their opposition included, Blackburn Rovers, Everton, Manchester City, Stoke, Fleetwood Town, and numerous other teams from the North West. The talent from each opposing team was evident from the start with numerous teams being formed from their local academies; although this didn't deter our wonderful Collegiate students.

The first game against Wigan was a 3-1 defeat with an amazing first goal scored by Kaydee and numerous spectacular saves from Steph in goal. As the games continued throughout the day the girls became tired with back-to-back games, but this did not affect their sheer determination to achieve the best that they could. Finally, the derby game against Fleetwood Town ended with a thrilling 2-1 win, as both Georgia and Kaydee scored great goals.

At the end of the tournament Blackpool finished 5th out of 10, which is amazing considering the strength of the opposing teams. Each player showed dedication, courage and passion; playing with pride in their local Blackpool Kit. Well done girls.

Wednesday, 7th May, 2014 - Year 10 Parent Question Time

During a question packed 60 minutes, parents/carers of our Year 10 students and the students themselves addressed a range of topical questions and queries to the senior leaders of Collegiate and the new Blackpool Aspire Academy. In attendance were Mr John Topping, Mr Colin Simkins OBE (Blackpool Aspire Academy Principal), Mr Tony Nicholson (Executive Headteacher), and a number of teaching and non-teaching staff.

Mr Simkins explained the reasons which have led to the governing bodies of both sites deciding to join Year 10 students together on the Bispham site and offered a high degree of reassurance and support that all Collegiate and Bispham Year 10 students will have the opportunities and scope to succeed in their last year of schooling. Mr Simkins made a request to parents/carers that they keep in touch with school and ask necessary questions to keep lines of communication open. Mr Topping emphasised this point and drew the audience's attention to the recently constructed joint schools Communications Action Plan and hoped that parents/carers of Year 10 students would wish to be part of this improvement plan and be active members of a Parents, Teachers and Friends Association within the Blackpool Aspire Academy.

Friday, 21st March, 2014 - Sport Relief

Sport Relief 2014

Here at Collegiate we held two events on the Playfootball pitches during dinner in aid of Sport Relief: a 'Beat the keeper' competition and several 'staff verses students' football matches.

Fleetwood Town kindly let us borrow two of their youth team goalkeepers, giving our students chance to try their luck against professionals in the 'Beat the keeper' competition. Prizes were on offer for those who managed to score.

Meanwhile, five games were played back to back in the 'staff verses students' football matches - the staff managing not to get beaten despite their old legs growing tired towards the end of the competition.

At the end of the competition the results table showed the staff had ultimately come out on top:

Team W D L
Collegiate Staff 2 3 0

technology

On Friday 14th March, Mr Barnhurst and Miss Gurney took three teams of four from Collegiate High School and Bispham High School to compete in the annual Rotary Technology Tournament held at YMCA in St Annes. All three teams worked industriously throughout the day to design and make a contraption that would retrieve a 'Radioactive rock' from an enclosed space from 1.5 metres away.

All three teams competed exceptionally by completing the challenge in under a minute - the Collegiate quartet of Arron, Sophie, Nathan, and William placed 2nd overall in their age category with Arron Williams completing the task in a storming 12 seconds!!

Monday, 10th March, 2014 - Building update

It has been a very busy period with the transition to the rear of the Collegiate building; now all students, staff, and visitors to the school must use the Playfootball car park on Garstang Road and walk up the path; school buses also drop off here. The school reception entrance is sign-posted for staff and visitors, with students using the double doors at Cicero basement. There is no entry to the school from Blackpool Old Road and this has now been fenced off as part of the construction site.

During the half-term break staff worked tirelessly to ensure that the school would be operational for the return of our students, with all furniture and equipment, including the servers for our computer network, being relocated or placed into storage courtesy of the site management team - Jeff and Carl. Gas, water, electricity, telephone, and data cables (allowing internet access) were also re-routed from the front of the school.

The contents of the Memorial Room were removed and put in safe storage together with a number of other artefacts from around school. The stained glass windows from the Memorial Room and Stanley stairs are also in safe storage and it is anticipated that these will be given pride of place in the learning resource area of the new school.

Demolition will begin over the next few weeks it is indeed exciting times ahead!

3D printing demonstration - Thursday, 13th February, 2014

3D printing

A great deal of excitement was created this afternoon as the people from Ultimaker demonstrated their latest 3D printing equipment here at Collegiate.

Designs are created on the computer using software such as Sketch Up and then downloaded to the Ultimaker 3D printer, where it is printed using low cost, biodegradable materials.

Both students and staff were surprised at how complex the designs could be - it really was a case of your imagination being the limitation!

Collegiate High School Final Heritage Tour Report - Sunday, 9th February, 2014

There was a great turn out for the final heritage tour held here at Collegiate High School on Sunday. Many former students from across the decades entered through the front doors for a final time before the building is demolished in the coming weeks.

On display in the Main Hall were various photographs of previous students and teachers, memorabilia from the now dismantled Memorial Room, and plans for the new academy building.

Mr Topping welcomed our guests, including the Mayor and Mayoress of Blackpool, to the school and talked about the history of the building and how that history will carry on in the new multi-million pound academy that will be built on the site. Afterwards visitors enjoyed a trip down memory lane as they toured the corridors and classrooms, reliving past lessons and taking photographs; everybody agreed that the event had been a great success.

Andy Mitchel from Radio Wave was at the event and recorded a special report, which can be heard here.

Watch out Jamie and Gordon! - Thursday, 6th February, 2014

Year 11 catering students at Collegiate High School proved today that they were a match for any celebrity chef, as they prepared and served a delicious two course meal of their choice as part of their GCSE Catering exam.

Each student has spent weeks trialling dishes and perfecting their cooking skills, before deciding on their final menu. Their chosen dishes included a white chocolate and raspberry meringue pie, cannelloni with home-made garlic bread, jerk chicken and a gluten free lemon and strawberry gateau.

Mrs Dodgson, their food teacher, who had the arduous task of tasting all the dishes, said that all the food produced was of restaurant standard and she was extremely proud of how the students had worked.

Discovery Day

This half term we have provided opportunities for Year 8 and 9 students of Collegiate High School to meet students of Bispham High School before the two year groups come together on the Bispham site in January.

One of these events was a 'Discovery Day' held at the Bispham site where Blackpool and The Fylde College staff conducted a number of interactive classes allowing students to freely mingle with each other.

Classes included, amongst other things, computing, engineering, construction, textiles, and First Aid. All the students engaged with the activities in an enthusiastic and positive manner.

Bispham High student Mohammed said of the day, "It's been a brilliant day, and I've really enjoyed all the practical exercises. It's also given me a chance to meet the Collegiate students".

The day was deemed a great success all round with students' behaviour being exemplary as we had expected.

Anti-Bullying Talk, Wednesday, 20th November, 2013

Students at Collegiate High School welcomed Mr Stephen Brookes MBE to their year assemblies during Anti-bullying week. Mr Brookes spoke of his work at a national level as the Lead Officer for Disability Hate Crime.

The start of each assembly was taken by youngsters who had written their own accounts of what bullying meant to them. Mr Brookes then showed a powerful DVD about a teenage girl who had been bullied dreadfully by young people around her and indicated that she had taken her own life in response to this nasty behaviour.

Mr Topping, Acting Headteacher, said, 'I hope that this Anti-bullying week 2103 features powerful messages and effective school assemblies all over the country. Every week should really be Anti-bullying week so that all our young people can continue to feel reassured that there are ways to combat this shocking behaviour that is sadly affecting the lives of so many young people'.

U14 Girls Blackpool, Wyre, and Fylde Football Tournament, Tuesday, 19th November, 2013

Girls football

On Tuesday, 19th November, eight determined young individuals braved the elements at Stanley Park to take part in the annual U14 girls Blackpool, Wyre, and Fylde football tournament. Thirteen schools took part in the tournament out of a possible twenty, a great turnout for such a chilly and bitter morning.

Collegiate were placed in Group 3 and had four teams to beat in order to progress to the next round. The first match was drawn against Hodgeson, where they narrowly missed out on a win with a 1 1 draw. The second opponents were Carr Hill, to which the girls seemed to have picked up their paces with a 2 0 victory; followed by another win against Cardinal Allen, 6 1. The last match was against Lytham who had won all of their matches so far; the girls were nervous and unfortunately lost 2 0, but were still determined to fight throughout its duration.

When listening out for the results, the girls were on tenterhooks to see if they had got through or not. Collegiate were fortunately through based on goals scored and being the best runner up out of all three groups. They now had to face Garstang, Lytham or Montgomery in the semi-final.

Semi-Final - Collegiate verses Garstang

The game started off slow with the Collegiate girls keeping the possession of the ball for the majority of the game. Then the unthinkable happened, Garstang scored, 1 0. This did not deter the girls and they fought for the right to be in the final; Cheyanne scored an absolute screamer in the top right hand corner to make the score 1 1. At half time the girls were pumped with determination to carry on, motivating and encouraging themselves, and this seemed to do the trick with the final score ending Collegiate 4, Garstang 1.

Final - Collegiate verses Lytham

The girls were nervous about replaying Lytham, as they had already lost against them in the group stages. It was all about pride and the title of the best school in Blackpool Wyre and Fylde now; after a pumped up talk from Mrs Mountjoy and Mr Errington the girls realised that they had nothing to lose.

The game was fierce with fatigue setting in for both schools. After a gruelling twenty minutes, including extra time, the score was still nil nil and penalties would have to decide the winner. Lytham converted three of their penalties and so too had Collegiate - it was down to Eden, Collegiate's goalkeeper, to clinch the title with the final penalty. She stepped up and slotted it away in the bottom right hand corner, and Collegiate High School became Blackpool, Wyre, and Fylde 2013 champions.

Well played to all the girls and it was a thoroughly deserved victory.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) Challenge, Monday, 18th November, 2013

STEM Challenge

Year 8 students, Jodie, Summer, Chloe, Arran, Liam, and James, represented Collegiate on Monday in the Blackpool heat for the National Faraday Challenge, with Mr Barnhurst and Mr Chadwick, which took place at Palatine Sports College.

The pupils had to compete against other local Blackpool schools in a STEM (Science Technology Engineering & Maths) challenge whereby they had to design and make a rocket and a fully automated mode of transport for the rocket.

The Collegiate six won the competition beating other local schools with their outstanding team work, effort, design, construction, and presentation skills. The Collegiate students received a trophy for the school, which is on display in the main reception, certificates, and a gift voucher for online store Amazon too!

Well done to all the students involved.
