Update from our Flexible Learning Programme (FLP)

Our Key Stage 4 curriculum at Kilgarth provides a flexible learning pathway to Years 10 & 11  pupils who are not able to sustain full time provision or for pupils who require a different approach to get them ready for post-16 training or apprenticeship.

We have  a highly experienced and skilled team led by Sue Pelter, FLP Co-ordinator.  Teachers on the programme include  Mr Chambers and Ms Moore and they all work tirelessly as a team to help students reach their potential.

We are delighted to share some great news from Ms Pelter along with some photos of the students.

GCSE Success!

There were some fantastic achievements in this year’s GCSEs.  Jacob achieved a Grade 5 in English and a Grade 6 in Maths along with a range of Btec qualifications. George and Will also achieved Grade 6 in 3D Design!  We are really proud of all the boys for trying their best.  Well done, Kilgarth Leavers 2022!

Leavers’ Trip to Alton Towers

This year’s leavers enjoyed a brilliant day at Alton Towers, braving the scariest of rides such as Wicker Man, Nemesis, Oblivion and The Smiler.  We were able to travel in the Smiley Bus together, Flexi staff and pupils, and what a great day it was to bring their time at Kilgarth to an end!  We wish them all luck and hope they come back to visit soon.

Visit to the Knife Angel

In the summer term, pupils had the opportunity to visit the Knife Angel while it was situated at the Grand Entrance of Birkenhead Park.  The amazing contemporary sculpture is made out of 100,000 confiscated knives received from 43 police forces across the UK and weighs 3.5 tonnes.

FLP Summer Activities

In the summer term, pupils on the Flexible Learning Programme enjoyed trips to Tam O’Shanter Farm, Moreton Driving Range and Parkgate for ice cream!

Bridge Making Challenge

Pupils on the Flexible Learning Programme started this year’s lessons with a team challenge, against the staff,  in which they made bridges from limited amounts of paper and tape.  The aim was to build the strongest bridge.  Owen and Ryan’s bridge won, holding two full bottles of water!
