Primary Links

We have well-established links with our feeder primary schools and do a number of shared activities throughout each year. It is important to have strong connections with our primaries and their children to enhance learning and bring a wider scope of enrichment activities together to benefit us all. Our student leaders are frequently involved in primary work.

We have developed curriculum links:

  • French and Spanish weekly lessons and clubs
  • P.E. collaborations, both at Allerton Grange and in the primary schools
  • Maths and PHSE shared curriculum planning
  • Science sessions with experiments
  • Technology days, making key rings, healthy eating food and textiles products.

Our student leaders take part in joint activities:

  • Leading creative writing master classes
  • Sports leaders taking P.E. sessions, involved in running primary sports days and inter-primary competitions.
  • Musical workshops, led by our Music ambassadors.
  • Sixth formers are reading mentors
  • Internet safety lessons delivered by the sixth form
  • Green project for more able students, led by Year 10.

We collaborate in enrichment activities:

  • Drama workshops and productions
  • Joint musical showcase
  • After school events, e.g. Higgs Boson with the Ministry of Sense
  • Forensic science after school club
  • Art printing workshops
  • Robotics sessions
  • Joint author visits

On a regular basis, we attend events in primary schools, including summer fairs and careers events. Our staff running these events are happy to answer any questions you may have.
