Assembly: Thursday 2nd May

We enjoyed seeing our friends and classmates perform their dance routines today! It was an exciting and unexpected treat. The dances had been originally seen last week at the fund-raising evening for this year’s Prom. As a group, we admired their talent, bravery to get up on stage and their skill in putting a routine together.

It was inspring to see them conquer their nerves in order to make us happy.

Professional Chef Paul Barrow visits Langtree

On Thursday the 21st of February, a professional chef visited Langtree School, to show the year 10 GCSE students how to make chocolate tart and chocolate mousse.

All the students taking GCSE food technology were intrigued with some of the chef’s techniques, such as cooking with cling film. This was a new technique that even the teachers found interesting!
