Sports Relief 2016
“Year 9 students organised and ran cake sales in the lead up to the day, raising £250. In the week of Sport Relief the students ran a sponsored Sport Relief mile in PE lessons, additionally students paid £1 on 18th March as part of a mufti day.
Sport Relief wristbands were sold and there was also a staff cake sale which raised over £50. Finally a staff versus students netball match that involved donations from spectators, which was narrowly won by the students! In total the school raised over £1,400”

Glebelands – Top 100 school in England
Glebelands School received some good news from Westminster when they received a letter from the Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb MP, congratulating them for their excellent improvement in GCSE results between 2013 and 2015.
They are now one of the top 100 non-selective state-funded schools in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of students achieving five or more A*- C grades, including English and mathematics GCSEs.
‘I am delighted that the commitment and hard work of our students, staff and governors has been rewarded with this fantastic achievement. We will continue to build on this to ensure that our students achieve the best results they are capable of and are fully prepared for the next stage of their educa- tion’ said Headteacher, Mrs Hutchinson.
