Our Open Evening really was a fantastic event with so much for all our visitors to see and do! Across the departments there were many activities on offer to showcase the exciting learning that takes place here at Culcheth High School. Different departments invited visitors to join in with sports, dances, songs, maths activities, poetry challenges, science experiments, cooking, ICT, practical technology, language quizzes and unusual artefact examinations.

Visitors were able to take a walk around the Art Department’s Wonderland to look for Alice with the art corridor transformed into a magical scene straight out of the book. This continued into Food Technology as Wonderland-style jam tarts could be baked and eaten at our very own Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Leaving Wonderland, visitors enjoyed a chance to marvel at our student’s designs in Technology and could see our laser cutter producing stylish key rings for them to take away.

Science was an explosive affair with experiments galore as elements of Biology, Chemistry and Physics were brought to life! Visitors got an insight into how fireworks are made, how the body works and how light can be split to produce vivid spectrums.
In Humanities, visitors embarked on a voyage of discovery, exploring strange artefacts and solving an array of puzzles linked to Geography, History and R.E.

For our younger visitors, there was a chance to get to know the school better by completing a quiz where the answers were located around the school site. It was a very popular quiz with all entrants receiving a Culcheth High School pen set for their good work. From the many entrants, one was randomly selected at the end of the evening to win the main prize of a brand new iPod Shuffle.

The lucky winner was Samuel Lestrange-Robinson from Lowton St Mary’s CE Primary School. He was presented with his new iPod by Mr Brown (Assistant Headteacher) in his school. A surprised and delighted Samuel said that he enjoyed the evening very much and he was very pleased that he had won the iPod.
