Chancellor's 3G Pitch
September 30, 2017
By Chancellor's School
We would like to install a 3G Pitch on our school site for pupil and community use. This will increase engagement in sport not only within school but from the community. The durable, specialised surface will allow access to sport all year round and will protect players' joints more than an ordinary grass surface. It will be easier to maintain and will provide a quality source of revenue for the school by hiring it out to the local and wider community.

Our project will enhance the school’s sports facilities and increase opportunities for our students and members of the wider community to access sports all year round. We believe that the installation of a 3G pitch will:
  • engage more pupils in sport. build links with our community through offering the pitch for community groups.
  • enable access to a facility that will help to educate about the importance of exercising for a lifetime
  • encourage children to improve their fitness levels during PE including muscular and cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility.
  • promote opportunities for children to be creative, cooperative and competitive and to face up to different challenges both as individuals and in groups.
  • reinforce the understanding of many subjects taught in the classroom e.g. Mathematics. Movement is also associated with enhanced brain functioning.
  • will enable the school and community to take advantage of the 3G pitch and use it to meet and make new connections.
  • assist children who have yet to develop their verbal communication skills thus, their confidence in physical abilities can lead to positive feelings of self-esteem
  • enable access for learning the notion of fair play, honest competition, good sportsmanship and dealing with both success and defeat.
Sixth Form Basketball
February 20, 2017
By I Naran, Year 12 Student
On Wednesday 8th February, a sixth form mini basketball tournament took place during the lunch hour to raise money for the Leavers’ Ball 2017.

It was a very enjoyable event and sixth form students from both years 12 and 13 participated, with over 30 students made up of 6 different teams. There were also a lot of the Sixth Form who weren't specifically playing in the tournament, but came along to support their friends and classmates who took part. Multiple games were played in the tournament, and the amount of wins were tallied for each game. Congratulations Essy Mashinchy’s team for finishing the tournament with 4 wins.

Overall the event was a fun event to take part in; we'd also like to say thank you for those who turned up and supported and took place in the event.

We are collecting vouchers again this year. Last year, we had a healthy total and would like to be able to purchase supporting equipment for lessons and clubs again.

There is a box for collection in main reception and we ask that any vouchers you receive are brought in and placed in there or handed to form tutors or PE teachers.

Thank you in advance of your support for this.

Lip Sync Battle
February 07, 2017
By M Runagall, Year 13 Student
Last Friday, 3rd February, the Sixth Form held their first ever ‘Lip Sync Battle’ as an event to raise money for this year’s leavers’ ball.

There was a great turn out, with students from both years of Sixth Form attending the event, be it to perform or just to support and enjoy from the audience.

Every single one of the performers put on an amazing show that was thoroughly entertaining to watch. We had performances from Honey G, Beyonce and Kanye, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and even President Tump, as well as some other much-loved songs such as Bohemian Rhapsody, songs from Mamma Mia, and even a performance from Les Mis.

In the end there could only be one winner, and that much deserved title went to Poppy McDonnell in year 12, whose hilarious routine of ‘Billionaire’ performed by Donald Trump combined with the fantastic costume had everyone laughing. Well done Poppy, and thank you to everyone else who took part and supported the event.
Cranedale Update
February 01, 2017
By Mr P Hobbs, Teacher of Geography
Currently a group of 13 A level geographers have just completed the second full day out in the field collecting data to help with their A2 exams this summer.

Firstly, Monday was spent in the rather sleepy town of Malton (apparently the food capital of Yorkshire) collecting urban data allowing a better understanding of the methods used and possible criticisms. The weather was chilly, but kind, so all ended the day quite upbeat. Tuesday dawned with the promise of rain and a rather wetter day in the river. As it turned out, this failed to dampen any spirits, and a quality day collecting primary data in three locations in the North York Moors ensued. Chancellor's has welcomed another school for the river studies day, and we have seen some excellent cross school collaboration, not only with collecting data but also in negotiating some rather boggy ground, which threatened to consume more than one set of wellies. All at Cranedale are buoyant and getting some quality work done throughout.
