LCS Students Visit Madrid

LCS Students Visit Madrid

From Thursday 8th February to the early hours of Saturday 10th February 2018, 30 Year 9 students and 3 members of staff spent 3 days in Madrid. We were very lucky with the weather, and we certainly made the most of our Spanish experience!

As soon as we arrived we began our Spanish adventure…. Due to our early flight from Liverpool airport we were all very hungry and tired by the time we arrived at our hotel!

We spent the next day brushing up on our Spanish with our penpals in our partner school in Madrid, ‘IES Santa Eugenia’. Students spent time playing bilingual games with their penpals before heading off to Madrid Zoo and flamenco dancing. We then went for dinner at the Spanish restaurant ‘La Catedral’.

The following morning we enjoyed our typical Spanish breakfast at the hotel and headed out via Metro for a fun-filled day of activities. Our first stop, ‘Santiago Bernabéu’ football stadium, home to Real Madrid. Here we did a tour of the museum, took lots of panoramic photos of the pitch and even caught a glimpse of a few of the actual players, Benzema and Marcelo!

After our ‘claim to fame’ moment, we headed back on the Metro to the other side of Madrid to spend the afternoon at the bull ring, ‘Las Ventas’. After an exhausting day we headed back to the hotel to collect our luggage and get ready for the flight home to Manchester.

All in all, we all really enjoyed our Spanish adventure in the capital, made lots of life-long friends, tried lots of new things and practised lots of Spanish!

You can view some pictures of the trip in the 2018 Madrid Trip Gallery.

Sixth Form: Preparation for University Applications

LCS Sixth Form students should have received communications about an upcoming information evening for parents regarding the University Applications process.

Now that sixth form students are over half way through their Year 12 studies, we feel that this is a convenient time to offer guidance pertaining to university applications. We are therefore pleased to invite parents to an information session geared to answering any questions that you may have about this process. The presentation will be conducted by members of staff from the University of Nottingham and will be held on Monday 5th March in S5 from 6.30pm to 8pm.

You can download a copy of the letter from Parents > Communications > Letters Home.

We are the Champions! - LCS wins NCS Silver Award

Posted 30th January 2018

We are the Champions! - LCS wins NCS Silver Award

Littleover Community School has been awarded the Silver Champion award by the National Citizen Service, due the high number of participants from the school. We have a great relationship with the NCS team with over 50 pupils taking part in the 2017 summer programme and 28 pupils in the autumn programme – the biggest group ever for this.

NCS is a valuable experience that builds confidence and independence whilst teaching skills for the future. Part of the programme requires that each group completes a community project to benefit the local area. Last year one project students got involved with was helping to build a community garden. Those who took part say they feel more connected and passionate about the society they are living in, as a result. Our NCS co-ordinator, Mr Barratt, said “It’s a great achievement to get this award at such an early stage and it is a credit to all the students who gave their time and energy for so many local charities.”

The programme is available to all Year 11 and Year 12 students giving an opportunity to gain life skills and experience, whilst also providing a stand out feature on CV’s and university applications. The programme is also a stepping stone between secondary education and employment or higher education. The experience is held in a high esteem by universities and employers. Over 98% of graduates who took part would recommend NCS to a friend whilst 92% say that they’ve developed more skills for the future.

NCS runs over a range of dates during the summer holidays and autumn half term. The whole programme is government backed so the price is subsidised to just £50 covering all accommodation, transport, meals, activities and equipment. 

Upon completion, there is a graduation ceremony to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the participants and each of them receives a certificate of accomplishment signed by the Prime Minister.

Anyone looking to sign up can do so by talking to Mr Barratt or by visiting their website https://www.ncsingeus.co.uk/
