Despite the earlier assurances from the bus companies that they were able to provide their normal services this morning, they informed us at 9.00am that due to the volume of traffic/poor driving conditions they were unable to complete their journeys in the vast majority of cases.
The school will remain open for all students who have arrived or who will arrive at school this morning, and students will be transported home at the end of the school day by their normal mode of transport.
Please note that Year 11 after-school classes tonight have been cancelled and the Year 10 Parents Evening that was scheduled for this evening has now been moved to Thursday 25th January (4.30 to 6.30pm)
The weather forecast is for no further snowfall so the school WILL BE OPEN AS USUAL tomorrow.
If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
Forty Year 9 students who have expressed an interest in a career in Engineering attended Darlington Foundation for Jobs ingenious Engineering day at the Dolphin Centre. The event was part of the Festival of Ingenuity, a celebration of engineering (past, present and for the future) in Darlington.
Students got involved in four different interactive workshops run by local Engineering companies to give them a taster of the Engineering industries that are alive in the local area.
Students got involved in a structural engineering workshop with Cleveland Bridge, a range of activities with Cummins, a paper engineering workshop with Darlington College, a robotic programming activity and a problem solving workshop with 3M.
The students were really engaged in the event and with many students requesting more information on the sectors of industry that they experienced.
The event was aimed at students who are soon to take their options and, with the new KS4 Engineering courses available at Hurworth, provided the students with an insight into possible career paths, further education and routes into employment at Post 16 stage within the Engineering industry.
