Over the course of the last year the Board of The Three Rivers Learning Trust and the Governing Bodies of schools within the Morpeth Education Partnership have been exploring the most beneficial way forward for schools that have expressed an interest in joining the Learning Trust.
Consultation begins today, Monday 9 October until Monday 13 November at 4pm.
The whole school took part in an Enterprise Day on Friday the 7th of April. The theme for the day was ‘The Wedding’.
All classes worked in six teams to tackle the challenge of attracting a couple to celebrate their wedding at a hotel.
Students had to consider everything from the food, entertainment costs, cake, decorations, stationary, room hire and photography. All students had a role in their group and the Financial Wizards of the group worked on the final customer quote by working out total costs, price per person and profit.
The activity was run in collaboration with Northumberland Education Business Partnership and local Business Ambassadors. Student feedback from the day was extremely positive and the Business Ambassadors were complimentary about the school and said that it had been a pleasure to work with our students.

What a fantastic time 15 of our Year 7 pupils had at this year’s Girls in STEM event at St. James’ Park! We were greeted on our arrival by our host Michael who took us into the Bamburgh Suite which was filled with purple and green tables and the most wonderful balloons we had ever seen!
Firstly, we were given a talk by some really inspiring STEM ambassadors before we were taken to the Innovation Lounge. The girls had to complete 6 challenges from the different areas to be entered into a prize draw where 4 of our pupils won their own drone!
We then were challenged to build a wind turbine that would generate electricity. All of our pupils made successful wind turbines but one of our groups managed to generate 0.68 volts, which was the 3rd highest reading out of the 39 groups taking part in the workshop! Elise, Elspeth, Fiona and Ava were given an Amazon Echo Dot each for their reward!
After that we were treated to a Q&A panel of inspiring women in STEM careers before a design skills workshop. All of the girls who took part had a brilliant day and worked extremely well on all the tasks they were challenged at! Well done girls!
We are taking part in BBC School Report Day.

Safer Internet Day gets hundreds of organisations involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.
It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policy makers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Ultimately, a better internet is up to us!
At Chantry we take always Internet Safety seriously throughout the year. We have had internet safety assemblies to contribute towards the national event which takes place on 6th February.
