Freddie’s Heroes and TV stars raise over £4,000 for charity
Stars of the small screen clashed with a Freddie’s Heroes XI from Fred Longworth High School in a match that raised over £4,000 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The game against a star-studded All Stars team was part of the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations and attracted a crowd of over 3000 at Alder Lane, home of Atherton Collieries FC.
Amongst the All Stars team were some very familiar faces including actor Ralf Little, soap stars Chris Bisson, Andy Whyment, Anthony Quinlan and Chris Fountain and Rhodri Giggs, brother of Manchester United legend Ryan.
Fred Longworth High School celebrates 10 years of outstanding care
On Friday 3 October 2014 we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our Nurture Group.
We now run Nurture Groups for each year group from Year 7 to 11 in addition to running Extended Nurture Groups. We also run a break and lunch time club that is open every day.
Work carried out in the groups aim to develop the students’ social skills, self-esteem and communication skills within a home-like environment.
We held our annual Open Evening on Tuesday 23 September 2014.
Once again it was extremely well attended and visitors to the school had the opportunity to sample a wide range of activities in each of the subject areas.
There were also many displays and events representing the rich and varied extra-curricular activities, including Nowt2Do?, that are such a key part of life at the school.
One area of particular interest was the Photo Booth run by students in our Art Department and a selection of the images from the evening can be viewed on our Flickr page at https://flickr.com/flhs or you can also view them on our own gallery page.
We would like to thank all those who attended and we hope that the evening was beneficial, especially for prospective pupils and their parents.
