Willows High School

New Learning Lounge at Willows High School

Well it's September already and the nights are starting to draw in, but here at Willows High we are excited for the start of a new school year! Following the summer success of our best exam results to date, with a fantastic A*-C grade pass rate of 93%.

As well as our excellent exam results over the summer, there's something else very exciting happening in school......the Learning Lounge has been transformed, all the new furniture is in and the room is ready to be used. The doors are open and we are eagerly awaiting you all to come to visit!

The Learning Lounge is a funky, colourful and bright space, with a coffee bar (self-service), comfy seating, as well as more private areas to sit. We are delighted to have a computer area, which will be available for people to book and use for job searches, skyping home, driving theory practice sessions and IT classes. We also have a larger area from which adult education and skills building classes and groups will run.

Some of the classes we hope to see running from the Learning Lounge will include Basic Maths, English and Science courses, English as a Second or Other Language, cake decorating, childcare, Parent Nurture Programmes, just to name a few. We are hoping to get more ideas of how we can best use our space and we would like you to tell us how. Come along and have a look at this wonderful space and let us know your thoughts and ideas on what you would like to see.

We will be holding an open evening on the 29th September form 4-7pm, where you can look around, meet the staff and sample some of the courses you might want to do. We will have cakes and light refreshments available as well as activities for the children to take part in, so bring the family. This is not just for parents of the school, we want this space to be accessible for the whole community and welcome you all. If you can't make the open evening, just pop in and see us another time, we would love to meet you all and hear about your fantastic ideas... the kettle is always on!
