Greenshaw has secured funding of at least £8,000 to build an outdoor learning space, through a fund that Tesco has raised from the 5p charge for carrier bags. The project involves creating an outdoor learning space in the design of an amphitheatre to enable students to make best use of their site, and create a more welcoming and inviting outdoor space. It will seat at least 50 students and have a stage space for lectures, performances and outdoor learning.
The scheme will see three community groups and projects awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000. If Greenshaw receives the maximum funding available, the additional money will be spent trying to make the structure more weather resistant so that it can be used throughout the year. Shoppers at Tesco Extra in Sutton will be able to vote from 31st October until 13th November on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. So if you are shopping in Tesco’s vote for this worthwhile scheme.
Greenshaw are also celebrating excellent exam results this summer. 76% of students attained at least 5A*-C grades, including English and Maths, equal to the school’s best ever achievement. Of these, one in four of all GCSE grades achieved was at A* and A.
A levels were also very good. Almost a quarter of grades were A*/A and over half were A*-B, with the overwhelming majority of students attaining grades that gained them entry to their first-choice university.
Well done Greenshaw!
