Snapshot - Remote Learning Edition

22.01.2021

Welcome to our CTS Snapshot - a weekly celebration update. We are exceptionally proud of the resilience and flexibility that is being continually demonstrated by our students, adapting to a different style of learning. We will be sharing the achievements of our students each week, and will be celebrating those who put in exceptional effort or achieve particularly well with their remote learning.

Music News!

The year 7 students who attended Music Technology last term entered into a county-wide competition run by Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust. They had to compose some music for a film clip from Macbeth. We have just heard that some of our entries have been shortlisted for the final. Students will be invited to a virtual celebration event on the 9th February, and the winner will win a £75 voucher. Stay tuned, and we will let you know if we are successful!
