  • Corby Technical School students look forward to next steps after excellent GCSE results

    Published 25/08/23

    There was a buzz of excitement at Corby Technical School today, as students celebrated their GCSE results and looked forward to their further education plans.

    The students were among the first since Covid-19, to sit their GCSEs under proper exam conditions.

    Angela Reynolds, Principal at Corby Technical School, said: “I am so proud of each of our students today who have achieved some fantastic results that are richly deserved.

    “These achievements are a true testament to the remarkable work ethic and dedication displayed by our students and staff. Celebrations were rightly in order, and I was delighted to be a part of them this morning.

    “It is always a joy to witness the growth of students during their time with us, and I look forward to working with many of our students as they join our Sixth Form. Thanks also go out to the families of our students, who work closely with the school to support our young people in their studies throughout their time with us” she added.

    Students were supported by staff to make decisions on their next steps – many will join the sixth form, and others are pursuing apprenticeships including Bosch and Formula One Autocentres.

    Mrs. Reynolds added: “Our year 11 students have been wonderful role models for our younger students, and we continue with setting high aspirations for our next cohort, as they move into the final year of their GCSEs.

    “Finally, I’d like to thank our fantastic teachers and school staff, who have supported and motivated our students throughout.”

    Andy Burns, Chief Education Officer (Secondary) at Brooke Weston Trust said: “I’m delighted for our students and their families, as they celebrate today. These GCSE results are a testament to the commitment they’ve put in over the last two years, supported brilliantly as always, by our wonderful staff across the Trust. They embody our core value of ‘’Ambition For All’ and I am immensely proud of them.

    “Given the significant disruption to learning that this year group has faced (since starting secondary school), these achievements are particularly impressive, and we should take a moment to recognise this within this context.”

    The Corby Technical School Sixth Form provision has recently been expanded to accommodate a greater range of options for its students.

  • Year 12 Geography Field Work Trip

    Published 28/06/23

    Year 12 students recently visited Liverpool. Students studied various aspects of Geography relevant to their A-level syllabus which will prepare them for the non-examined assessed coursework element of the course. They learnt a number of fieldwork techniques in order to collect data to test theory.  The piece was written by students Lexi, Emily, Finlay, Sam and Jakub.

    As a student of A-level geography, one of the most exciting and rewarding parts of the curriculum is the fieldwork that is required. Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in a fieldwork trip to Liverpool and Formby, where I was able to observe and analyze both human and physical geography in action.

    In Liverpool, we were able to explore the city's waterfront, where we studied the impact of urbanization on the environment. We examined the development of the city's docks and the impact this had on the natural ecology of the area. We also analyzed the impact of tourism on the city, looking at how visitor numbers have increased over the years and how this has affected the local economy.

    But it was our trip to Formby that really brought the physical geography of the area to life. Formby is a beautiful coastal town located just north of Liverpool, and we spent a day exploring the sand dunes and beach. We studied the formation of the sand dunes and how they are shaped by the wind and the tides. We also looked at how the dunes support a unique ecosystem of plants and animals, including the rare Natterjack Toad.

    One of the most interesting aspects of our fieldwork was the opportunity to use a range of data collection techniques to gather information. We used digital technology to monitor climates, photography, and even looked at ph of the dune material to collect data on the physical features of the area. We also conducted surveys and interviews to better understand the impact of human activity on the environment.

    Overall, the experience was incredibly valuable, both in terms of deepening our understanding of the topics covered in the curriculum and in developing our skills in data collection and analysis. It was also a great opportunity to work collaboratively with our classmates and other students from the trust schools and to apply what we have learned in the classroom to real-world situations. I am grateful for the opportunity and look forward to future fieldwork trips.
