We did it again!

We are very happy to announce that for the second year running, the Calder High Media Production Team have won the National Schools' Film Competition, organised by the Bank of England. This year we came top in the Key Stage 3 category, as well as being overall winners once more. The theme of this year's competition was "What independence means to me" and the students responded by filming themselves engaging in activities that give them a sense of artistic freedom and individuality; such as film-making, baking, and drawing. As well as the school being awarded funds for film production equipment, the students involved in the production of the film will also receive a cash prize. Here's to next year's competition!

Bus services update

Please note that this afternoon the school was informed that the bus company who operate the school ‘C’ bus service, will be operating at an earlier time as from Monday 29 January 2018. I can only apologise for the lack of notice, however, this is beyond our control.
