The school was delighted to have their efforts acknowledged by the AQA external assessor when he visited the school in January 2016.
The report validated the school as the on-going Centre for the award of AQA units for the students and concluded:
“ Jorge Garcia is an impressive UAS coordinator and I wish to congratulate all unit teachers for their delivery of the units. It was a pleasure to monitor The Loddon School, and I wish everyone associated with the Unit Award Scheme every success in the future.”
During the weekend (16th January 2016) after Tim Peake had completed his spacewalk, the students learnt about Space and completed a wide variety of space related activities. The “wow” board was assembled with all of their work and the picture was tweeted to Tim Peake directly to show him what they had been inspired to do by his walk.
Loddon School staff were delighted to receive greetings directly from Tim after he received their picture. Our first tweet from outer space!
