TENBURY High School has turned to technology to attract new students.

It should have been opening its doors to more than 300 parents, carers and potential pupils who would have been welcomed by students and pupils, eager to tell them about life at Tenbury High School Ormiston Academy.

But because of Covid-19 it has not be allowed to have people on the site.

It provides an insight into what it is like for students at the school as well as details of the curriculum.

Students and teachers take part in the film that can be viewed via the school website.

Filming takes place in the classrooms. science laboratory cookery facility, library, music room gym and on the sports field.

The school intends to put more videos on line in the coming weeks to keep parents, carers and others with an interest in the school up to date on developments.

Whilst the usual autumn event for future pupils and their families has not been possible people who are interested can make contact and organise individual family tours.

Prospective parents, carers and pupils are also able to contact the school to ask questions and for further information.

“Our broad and balanced, innovative curriculum has been developed with our learners in mind and in our context,” said school principal Vicki Dean.

“We develop the skills, the knowledge across all our subjects to enable our learners to make the choices they want, to pursue the career path they want and become tolerant, courteous and respectful learners as they leave us post 16 and embrace the world around them.”

Mrs Dean said that the school believes that English is the foundation to all other subjects.

She also says that maths is critical in helping children to understand the world in which they live and be confident with numbers.
