Our Key Stage 2 pupils visited the Nene Whitewater Centre where they had the opportunity to try canoeing and kayaking. They had great fun and showed the determination and courage to succeed inspite of a few initial nerves that make us very proud of them. Well done everyone!
Our Key Stage One and Reception pupils visited the Pinnacle Centre for a morning of climbing, caving and abseiling. They showed our school value of Courage in their approach to all of the activities. It gives a new meaning to high expectations! Well done everyone!
Blakesley School first opened its doors to pupils in 1669 - an amazing 350 years ago. The original classrooms are still in use and enjoyed by our children all of these years later. Although it’s hard to imagine the original school hall, now our school library, ever being big enough for assemblies or PE!
Our children have started this year’s celebrations with a special birthday assembly in which they shared their research about the life of the school.
Did you know …
- That there is a tunnel beneath the school that runs to the church, and in the opposite direction to Blakesley Hall. Apparently it was used for moving around the village in secret – ssssh! …
- That when the school first opened, only boys were allowed to attend…
- That on one occasion when the School Inspector visited, there were no children in the school. They were all over the wall, picking and eating apples under the tree!...
- That the ‘new’ school hall’s pyramid shaped roof caused uproar in the village as it was considered not harmonious or in keeping with the rest of the buildings in the village.
We hope that you will join us for our community celebration of 350 years of Blakesley School, more details to follow.
