Year 11 Business Studies students have been investigating ‘Methods of Production’.
Students were taught the theory and then had to apply their new knowledge in numerous practical demonstrations, showing that they could apply the use of the most appropriate method of production, to fulfill ‘customer orders’, using die, and yummy Jelly Tots. The students learned that sometimes, despite how hard you try, orders can go wrong and this can result in problems for a business. Students worked really hard and showed resilience by working through the problems they encountered. Teamwork and co-operation were put to the test, but this proved no issue for our budding young entrepreneurs!
The sessions have proved popular and the students were rewarded for their fantastic effort!
Some of our students were lucky enough to be invited to check out the progress of our new build on our Ushaw Moor Site.
Congratulations to all our Year 11 students on your examination results.
We are extremely proud to see a considerable improvement in our results this year with 80% of our students achieving a pass (Grade C) in English and / or maths.
Wishing all our students every success in the future.
GCSE results day for students is Thursday the 23rd August between 9:00am-11:00am. Students can collect their results from both sites and staff will be available to answer any questions or concerns. Please note if you are collecting results on behalf of a student you must bring written permission from the student and ID for yourself.
We have lots of new additions joining us in September but one of them has started early- Welcome to Durham Federation Cooper!
Cooper the Hungarian Vizsla is the newest member of our Durham Federation family and will be working with staff and students on the farm.
At 11 weeks old he needs lots of care and attention and we can’t wait for you all to meet him.
