A Long Sutton college threw open its doors to demonstrate the latest technology available to students.

Simon Gilman, headteacher of Peele Community College, welcomed 145 family groups making plans for September next year to a year six open evening.

Mr Gilman said: “It was a very successful open evening, with a full programme of activities in every department, demonstrating teaching and learning styles and the latest technology for students to learn.”

He also spoke about the excellent GCSE results that the college had received in recent years, with 80 per cent of students leaving with five A*-C grades.

Highlights of the evening included the DT department giving everyone the chance to make a Peele key ring and year 11 students helping visitors to make their own badges.

The new term has seen three new members of senior staff – assistant head Sarah Steele, deputy head Elizabeth Smith and assistant head Adam Powell. Students are also enjoying a new break area.
