An Action Packed Open Evening 2017

Added 11 months ago


Over 500 prospective students and parents attended Richard Lander School's Open Evening last Thursday and enjoyed meeting Henry the snake and King Henry 8th – in the form of History teacher Mr T Brooker. Visitors also took part in solving a murder mystery and crafting insults like Shakespeare with the English department, making piñata and ordering croissant with Modern Foreign Languages students or lighting methane bubbles and experiencing electrostatic energy with a Van de Graaff generator in the Science corridor. In Creative Arts studios, Director and Playwright Jon Welch worked with students on an upcoming school production, and year 5 & 6 students were invited to join drumming workshops or try out classical and rock instruments. Upstairs new students could explore printing and large scale drawing, enjoy a cream tea, have their name embroidered or compete in ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’ whilst gamers could design their own web games or try out a picAxe Microbot. A great evening was had by all and the school would like thank the 300+ current students who gave up their evening to run activities and give guided tours.
