St Dominic’s celebrates the 90th Anniversary of the arrival of its first pupil!

Monday, 13 January is the 90th anniversary of the arrival of the first pupil to St Dominic’s Open Air School for Boys, as it was then called.

During the week there will be various events to mark this, starting with a whole school assembly on Monday, during which there will be a slide show of the history of the school.  There will also be themed playground games and, in recognition of our ‘open-air school’ heritage, teachers will be encouraged to find opportunities for outdoor learning through the week.  Art lessons will focus on making an art installation marking the event.

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2019
