Ambergate Lower School participated in a Dinosaurs & Explorers Day this month. Pupils engaged in a carousel of activities including dinosaur maths, making a dinosaur mask, a dinosaur hunt, making fossils and engaging in an archaeological dig for bones!
During the afternoon, we welcomed Teach Rex, an animatronic dinosaur! Rex came into school for the pupils to engage with and they learned all about the history of dinosaurs, their anatomy and different types of dinosaurs.

The GANF Bake Off Returns!
The Great GANF Bake Off took place at Sandon was last week! This time was the turn of Assistant Headteacher, Sara Ellis and Student, Michael Cherry. It was a great success!
Both participants baked delicious chocolate sponges, Michael having Shannon as his sous chef and Sara having Georgia as her sous chef. Both sous chefs did a fantastic job helping the chefs get ingredients, equipment and washing up afterwards!
Outdoor Classroom Day at GANF
To celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day, GANF wanted to provide every pupil with the chance of an outdoor experience. At GANF Schools we strive to provide outdoor experiences known as 'Enrichment', which help to provide our pupils with a well-balanced curriculum.
What is Outdoor Learning?
Sandon Coffee Shop Success
You are probably aware that students from Sandon School 6th Form (Hospitality Pathways) run a Coffee Shop in Grantham. During this academic year, the Tasty Treats Coffee Shop have updated their menu so they were able to offer something new to their customers.
The drinks menu has been expanded and now offers hot chocolate as well as tea, coffee and juice.
Sandon School has been selected as an outstanding provider of care and support to children.
Caring2Learn is an innovative research project aiming to improve outcomes for Looked After Children (LAC) and young people across the county. The study is about supporting LAC and particularly children in care, to learn in school through developing ‘caring schools’.
Sandon pupils delighted as their chicks hatch!
Sandon School pupils have been learning about the life cycle of hens and following the receipt of funding from the Edina Trust, they were thrilled with the arrival of an incubator and six eggs.
Staff and pupils took delivery of the batch of eggs from Rand Farm in Market Rasen last month, in the hope that pupils would see chicks emerging from their shells first-hand.
Silverstone Class Presentation
On the Wednesday the 2nd of May, Silverstone class had their presentation day. We wanted to do something a bit different so we asked the parents to sit in their child’s chair to experience the day through their eyes. We then had a shortened day in an hour. This was led by the children, taking each part of our day and teaching the children. Each child had a part to play in the day, heres how the day went –
The Spalding Priory School 4 v 5 Ambergate Sports College
Ambergate travelled to Spalding for what was to be a very wet, cold and closely contested game. On route it looked highly likely that the game was to be called off however rain did not stop play and both teams revelled in the weather.
The message to the players before the game was to enjoy the game and ignore the weather. Nathan Weston scored early on which settled the players into the game however it wasn’t long before The Priory School pulled away with a 3-1 lead.
The Great GANF Bake Off is back!!
You may remember last June, Sixth Form student, Andrew Higgins, went head to head with GANF Director of Education, Claire Buffham, in a Great British Bake Off style competition.
The event was a raging success with the bake off taking place live, in front of an audience of pupils and judges.
