Baggeridge Visit Friday 15th September

Key Stage 3 students visited Baggeridge Park on Friday 15th September as part of their Creative Curriculum. Students were given the task of finding the location of a set of pictures that Olive the Pug had taken on her trip around Baggeridge Park the day before. Students worked as part of a team and navigated through the forest.


ASDAN project

Students in Key Stage 3 and 4 have been trying their hands at clay modelling. They have made a number of clay dishes and personalised them using paint and engraving. Well done to all of our students for completing this project as part of their ASDAN award.

Awards 2017

On Friday 21st July students had a very busy morning in Nightingale as they took part in a very competitive fish race and had a presentation. Students received awards for excellent attendance and their achievements in academic subjects. Students have worked extremely hard this year and challenged themselves in all aspects of school life. We wish all of our students who are transitioning to mainstream schools in September the best of luck!



Cosford 20th July 2017

On Thursday 20th July Nightingale students visited Cosford Air Museum. Students explored each hangar and enjoyed learning about the Cold War and used the interactive play area. Students had an enjoyable trip as part of their ASDAN course.


Today Nightingale students started their hunt for the 30 wolf sculptures located around Wolverhampton City Centre. It is the largest art event to take place in the centre and each sculpture has a unique design.

Bratch Locks 14th July

On Friday 14th July Nightingale students explored Bratch Locks in Wombourne. They followed a canal trail and spotted local wildlife along the way. This visit forms part of our Creative Curriculum offer and enables students to develop social and emotional skills. Students enjoyed seeing a range of wildlife and visiting the canal locks.


Lower Drayton Farm

On Friday 7th July Nightingale students paid their final visit to Lower Drayton Farm. They had the opportunity to complete team work and build their own shelter. They collected materials together from the natural landscape and created a shelter fit for Bear Grylls!

Important E-Safety Update: Snapchat

We understand that our students enjoy using the Internet and apps in a safe and positive way. Recently there have been changes made to the app ‘Snapchat’. Please find the recently released guidelines regarding the Snap Map feature:

This location based map allows users to see where in the country their Snapchat contacts are, as well as seeing location based photos and videos. The Snap Map shows a user’s Bitmoji, their cartoon avatar within Snapchat, pinpointed on a world map. Users can then zoom into the map to see the exact location of their friends.
