An amazing 20 of our students completed the award. We would like to congratulate all of you!

JK Rowling – The Ickabog

The Ickabog by J K Rowling will be published for free in instalments, over the next seven weeks, a chapter (or two, or three), at a time. J K Rowling states ‘It isn’t Harry Potter and it doesn’t include magic. This is an entirely different story.’

When published in November all royalties will be donated to people affected by Coronavirus. Click here to access this resource.

Home Learning – Year 9

This week we wanted to let you know about Frankie-Mae in year 9. Frankie-Mae’s Mum works at the hospital.
During lockdown she wanted to do something to help her Mum and the other staff. Using YouTube videos Frankie-Mae taught herself to knit and crochet and she’s been making ear bands for hospital staff, including her Mum to wear.
These bands allow people wearing masks to have them supported at the back of the head rather than on their ears. Wearing masks all day that are on your ears can make their skin really sore and uncomfortable. The Leigh UTC would like to thank Frankie-Mae for making these and helping other people. We are all really proud of you! #Thankyou #UTC #STEM #HomeLearning


Thank you

The Leigh UTC would like to thank all #NHS and #CareWorkers for all that you have done so far.
We really appreciate it. #ThankYou #ClapForCarers #UTC
