Bank Holiday Activities

Why not take a look at some more activities and virtual places to visit whilst staying safe at home this Bank Holiday weekend.

The National Garden Scheme has virtually opened a number of beautiful gardens that can be visited from the comfort of your own home. Along with garden owners they are working to bring gardens to life with virtual garden visits, gardening tips and great stories. Visit them here.

Historic England has developed a number of virtual dive trails where you can explore some fascinating wrecks without even getting wet! These trails use new technologies such as multi-image photogrammetric recording and virtual reality techniques to allow viewers to see a clear 3D image of a site. Dive in here.

Finally, just in case the Bank Holiday weather isn't as dry and sunny as we hope, the Scouts have pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas to keep children entertained. They'll learn new skills and have fun in the process. Take a look at some inspiration here.

We hope you enjoy your visits and learn something new! 


Lockdown Book Club

Calling all pupils who love reading and talking about books!

There is a new Team for this remote pupil book club, providing a forum for discussion of your latest reads. Message boards are open for contributions, and online meetings will take place during Tutor Time on Tuesdays (for KS3 and KS4) and Mondays (for KS5), supervised by Dr Pyne and Mrs Borman - please ask your tutor to be excused from Form.

This is an excellent initiative from the Prefect Body and we hope to see lots of you there.

Please email to be added (or request via Teams).

Jesus Christ Superstar Announced As College Production For 2021 - Reminder

Every year the Performing Arts Department at Princethorpe College works tirelessly to stage a superb musical production. Who can forget the success of We Will Rock You, Little Shop of Horrors and Arabian Nights to name just a few.

Trailed on the department’s Instagram, Director of Music, Gil Cowlishaw, has announced that the College’s 2021 production will be the fantastic 1970s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

It promises to be a highly entertaining show, featuring a number of classic rock musical numbers including Gethsemane, I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Everything’s Alright and of course the powerful anthem Superstar.

The team are planning to cast the show before September and pupils are encouraged to get involved. So whilst pupils are learning from home why not encourage them to warm up their vocal cords and try something new.

Pupils can use the code fnram84 to join the Jesus Christ Superstar group on Teams.

We can't wait!!
