Croftlands Guitar Club - On the Radio!
Written by Miss L Anderton
Created Tuesday, 8th July 2014 13:17:15


Members of Croftlands Guitar Club, along with Mr Cross, have been working very hard recently to create their own tracks using the school's new digital recording equipment. All their hard work, including time spent in school at the weekends, has paid off as their track 'Memories' was recently played the radio! Mr Cross sent the track to BBC Introducing Cumbria where it was very well received and aired on Saturday 7th February. We are mentioned 1 hour and 10 minutes into the two hour show.
Quick! There are only 27 more days to hear the show so click on this link to have a listen yourself before time runs out!

Weekend Walk - September 2014

Weekend Walk Over Hampsfell

On Saturday 27th September, children from Upper School enjoyed a weekend walk over Hampsfell near Grange-over-Sands. Luckily the weather stayed fine and both children and adults had a fabulous time. At the top of the fell the group took shelter in the hospice (built in 1846 by the vicar of Cartmel) and took advantage of the stunning 360 degree views. There was even chance to use the summits viewfinder to identify surrounding fells including Helvelyn and the Langdales. The trip ended in the usual manner with a trip to the ice cream shop in the centre of Grange; a definite highlight for everyone who went.
If you are interested in coming on the next weekend walk then then listen out in assembly as they usually happen once every half term. The more the merrier!

Lantern Festival - Saturday 13th September 2014

Don't forget we are meeting in the school hall at 7pm on Saturday to collect the lanterns we made last term before walking to Croftlands Community Centre to join procession into town. I hope the current Year 7 pupils will join us with the lantern they made and Year 3s are also welcome as there are likely to be spares!

Quick reminder that every child should be accompanied by an adult as the Croftlands Staff are not responsible for any child during the walk into town or during the procession.

Hope to see there!

Art Exhibition - Open now until the end of June!!!!

Come take a look...


Over the course of the year, Mrs McMillan ran a very successful art club after school as well as inviting local artist, Gill Ferguson, to work with the lower school children where they developed their felt-making skills. Naomi Bartlett also ran a photography workshop with Years 3 and 4 which all children greatly enjoyed. This outstanding work is now being exhibited at Ford Park Coach House at the invitation of Jean Povey.


Art club members included Iris Bannister, Connor Boardman, Jaiden Braithwaite, Abbie Clarke, Ruby Danson, Sophie Doran, Lucy McMillan, Jonathan Saunders, Robert Saunders & Trudy Worthington who all worked hard to produce stunning canvas paintings of different flowers. They were aided by UVHS 6th Form students – Tom Rutter & Florence James – who came in on a weekly basis after school; their help was greatly appreciated.
We urge everyone to visit the exhibition before the end of June and take a look at the fabulous artwork that has been produced. There is a book of comments for people to sign and so far it appears to be a an exceptionally popular exhibition.
