  • Emma Pass visits the Learning Lounge

    Dystopian writing workshop success!

    Today we were lucky to have local author Emma Pass visit the Learning Lounge. Emma published two Young Adult books Acid and The Fearless. Both books feature Dystopian worlds. Our lucky students were taken through a writing workshop where they were able to invent new worlds. We had vampire unicorns, a world without wifi and many evil secret organisations.

    We were also incredibly lucky to have students from Newark Academy visit us and join in the workshop.

    Emma was then available to sign books and answer all the students' questions!

    The event was a huge success and I think all our ...

  • World Kindness Day 2017

    Work Hard, Be Kind

    To celebrate World Kindness Day at Toot Hill School, The Learning Lounge let the students loose on their whiteboard. What started off as an empty board soon turned into a beautiful array of colourful drawings and kind words.

    Students were asked to write kind things to one another on the board.

    Here are some of our favourites:

    Be the brightest star in the sky

    Inner beauty is more important than looking good

    Take some time to compliment someone

    Thank you to all our wonderful students! The true embodiment of our motto: Work Hard, be Kind.
