This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As part of our careers programme, film and television director, Bill Eagles came into school last Friday. He is best known for directing the 2000 film Beautiful Creatures and as a television director,  his current programmes include CSI, Gotham and The Mentalist.

As well as touring the school and talking to students in music, drama and technology; he gave a fascinating presentation to year 8 students about how his career developed, as well as how a scene is filmed and the range of opportunities in the film and TV industry. He also answered questions including who is the most famous actor he has worked with, which is his favourite scene and what dangerous stunts has he directed​ and finished up signing autographs for students and staff!!

After his visit he sent Mrs Sawer a lovely email about how brilliant and talented the students, that he met, were!! He was particularly impressed with the performing arts lessons and told her that he was ‘blown away by the pupil’s talent in the music area’. As a result he wants to work with school on the making of a short film.

So watch this space!

Tour de Foss- An Eskdale School Project

Tour de Foss update
Inspired by the Tour de Yorkshire, Eskdale School students and the DT Department has created its very own Tour de Foss challenge at Falling Foss Tea Garden.
The aim was to create a fun way to visualise how much power could be generated by the action of peddling a bike. The model demonstrates how peddle power can be used to pump water from the beck which then runs through a series of troughs before turning a water wheel – loads of fun for kids and adults too!

Two groups of year 9 students took part in sessions on making informed decisions and what skills employers look for, provided for us by the Institute of Grocery Distribution. As well as discussing the importance of puntuality, being organised, working as part of a team and being able to listen and speak effectively,  we also discovered that one in seven people work for the Retail Food and Drinks sector and on average we purchase food/drink 24 times a month! Students were able to ask our visitors about any aspect of their job, how they got into their occupation and what advice they would give their 14 year old selves!  As two of our visitors came from Quorn we were also treated to some tasty snacks.
