Ambergate Drama pupils enjoy their very own Film Premiere at Savoy Cinema
Lights, camera, action!
It all started with a film competition open to schools in England and Wales. Judicium Education were looking for six-minute films that would ‘entertain, amuse, intrigue or amaze’ them. Ambergate Sports College decided to take on the challenge.
The next couple of lessons for the Drama pupils were spent scripting their idea – ‘A Zombie in the Team’ – a comical, horror movie set 30 years in the future.

Lions on the Pirate Ship?
You heard right! Ambergate’s Pirate Ship has been out of use for a little while now due to needing some maintenance. As luck would have it, we were fortunate enough to have the President of The Vale of Belvoir Lions, Simon Ashworth, attend the recent GANF/FOSA Summer Fayre. By chance he was speaking to Mr Ellis and asked why the play equipment was out of bounds on the day.
German Exchange Trip 2019
Pupils from both Sandon and Ambergate have again taken part in the annual German Exchange Trip with our partner school KBZO.
The trip started with a very early meeting at Ambergate, leaving for the airport at 6am!
We made it safely to Stansted and then explored the airport and played games. When we landed in sunny Memmingen, we took our first group photo and spent our evening exploring Weingarten and having our first meal out.
GANF achieve UNICEF Bronze Award!
Following on from our International Award success in 2018, GANF have achieved the Bronze Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA).
Both Sandon and Ambergate are exploring opportunities to continue to further develop RRSA throughout the schools.
At GANF, we have considered the importance of articles and each classroom has created a classroom charter which link to specific rights that children hold. During International Week, there was a focus on studying refugees and how their rights may be different to UK citizens.
