Welcome to Collingwood Connect

Your Collingwood Connect website has been created to host some of our media, resources and information. We will continue to update the content here regularly so please bookmark us and drop by to see what we are up to.

As well as the Head Teacher’s regular video update we will be adding learning resources, story time videos, fun items and more. Why not send us something to make us laugh for our new Limericks page? And why not join in with our Collingwood Gallery and Quizzes pages by sending us some of your drawings, photographs and ideas?

The Collingwood Lottery has been running for 6 weeks now. There have been 6 winners and a total prize fund of £88.20. This has raised £76 for the school. Well done to the winners (one of whom has won 2 weeks in a row!) and thank you for supporting the school.

Transition 2020

We have added a new Transition section to the Connect website.

Here you can find a wealth of information about the school including details of our school uniform and how to order items, applying for transport, school meals, holiday dates and much more. Our students have also produced video tours of the school and 360 degree interactive views of key areas.

The Land Art Project

At Collingwood we have spent a fun filled week outdoors creating outdoor Land Art. In our year groups we have collected lots of different natural art materials from around school and we even collected some from where we live. From twigs, branches, grass, shells, rocks and other found items we have created a range of artworks from patterns, pictures and tree hangers. We have been working towards a competition called the Big Outdoor Art Challenge.

We are looking for a Writer in Residence!

Open to all Key Stage 3 and 4 students with a passion for storytelling! The successful candidate will create written responses to events taking place within the school, our local area, and the wider community.
