Celebrating Success 2021-2022
7 September 2022 (by admin)
This week at Corpus we celebrated our Summer Concert Showcase with great success! We would like to thank all students, staff and parents involved, as we could not have done it without their commitment. We would also like to give a special thanks to our friends at Yorkshire Dance and Corpus Primary School, as the event was a continuation of our great partnership. Overall we are very proud of our sense of community here at Corpus, as we look forward to showcasing the great talent of our students in the near future. Here are small selection of the photos of the night but there were so many more amazing performances!!!
Mr Bell has been running a FIFA tournament for weeks and on Thursday; the final takes place!" Who will be the winner of the first Corpus Christi Champions cup?
RERF Field Trip
Y9 Geography students enjoyed a visit to the RERF plant last Thursday. “All students were a credit to themselves and the College – they asked lots of investigative questions.” Mrs King.
Miss Loureiro’s Year 7 students had a look at the digital version of First News for the first time this week in their library lesson. They worked together in small groups to find some interesting articles that feature in the news in this week’s edition.
Here are some articles that grabbed our students’ attention:
· Two boys found in the Amazon rainforest after a month.
· Aldi has launched a giant hot cross bun.
· Five ancient tombs have been discovered in Egypt.
· Octopuses are adapting to the litter in our oceans by using it for shelter.
· Seagulls have a favourite fish and chip shop!
· Beavers have returned to London for the first time in 400 years.
· A cat called Stefan was evacuated from Ukraine and now has 1.1 million followers on TikTok.
The students were able to talk about their favourite articles at the end of the lesson where they listened attentively and respected each other.
It was wonderful to see our students empowered by global news knowledge! - Miss Busby, Librarian
Tuesday at the National Festival. The girls played really well considering we only had 9 players (11 a-side!) and carrying injuries (special mention to Demi who carried on with a knee injury!), managing to win all their games except one, meaning they're through to the National Finals to be held on 27th April at Featherstone Rovers. They also have the Yorkshire Cup Final on Wednesday 30th March so please wish them congratulations and good luck for the next rounds. Additionally, some of the girls were approached by York Knights off the back off their performance, so a massive well done to them too.
Positive Choices day with Leeds United Foundation
Students at Corpus are receiving an education into the consequences of serious violence, thanks to a project led by the Leeds United Foundation.
The Y10 are listening closely to talks about knife crime to start their positive choices day.
Staff would like to thank the Year 10 and Year 11 pupils that participated in the English trip for being such a credit to Corpus at the Leeds Playhouse last Thursday! We went to see the production of 'Macbeth' and pupil behaviour was exceptional. Staff and pupils really enjoyed the fantastic production with an incredibly talented and diverse cast. Thank you, Y10 and Y11!
The Riot Act
Our Year 7 students enjoyed a unique theatre production by The Riot Act highlighting road safety.
'From the minute they started to the minute they finished the students were engaged and enjoyed the production'- Ms. J Adams, Student Support Officer for Year 7.

Rugby Yorkshire Cup
