Learning and Working with Heat Trace

Heat Trace Limited is a global company providing complete heat tracing solutions. Heat tracing is the method of heating and or maintaining temperatures in pipelines, tanks, vessels and pipeline equipment. For more than 40 years, Heat Trace has been a leader in this industry with a rate of growth at 42% over the last two years.  With their continued investment in invention and innovation it is clear their achievements will continue.

On two recent trips Year 12 Business and BTEC Business students were fortunate to discover just how Heat Trace has become such an international success.

Students toured the factory and learnt about the different methods of production that are needed to maintain such high quality products. The students were keen to hear about the strategies that have been implemented for such rapid global growth and this was followed by an overview of their very impressive investment in people which highlighted the award winning apprenticeship programs that Heat Trace offer.

Thank you to Heat Trace for such a fantastically rewarding visit!

Helsby Welcomes International Students

in Featured | By Mr S Edwards,

Once again we are very fortunate to have some international students studying with us in Helsby Sixth Form.

We have 5 students this year, from a variety of countries, studying a variety of subjects.

Martin is from the Czech Republic and he is studying Biology, Geography, German and Mathematics. Martin chose to come to England to improve his English because he feels that English is really important in the world. He is pleased to have met, ‘many nice and friendly’ people.

Brealyn is from Australia and she is studying English Literature, Biology and Criminology with us until the end of November.  She chose to come to England to experience a different way of life, expand her friendship groups and improve her academic work.

Vittore is from Switzerland and he is studying Physics. Mathematics, Business Studies and Drama.  He chose to come to England to improve his English, make new friends and to satisfy his ‘wanderlust’.

Larsen is from Germany and he is studying Chemistry, Biology, Drama and Criminology.  He chose to come to England to experience a different culture, improve his skills in English and to make new friends.

Nathalie is also from Germany and she is studying Mathematics, Photography, Art and Design and Criminology.  She chose to come to England because she loves to travel, enjoys new experiences and wants to improve her skills in English.

All of the students are enjoying the experience and making a valuable contribution to their subject areas. We wish them a happy and successful time with us.

Poppy Appeal 2016

in Featured | By Mr S Edwards,

In the run-up to Armistice Day on the 11th November, which marks the end of World War One, we will be selling a variety of Poppy Appeal merchandise products to raise funds for the Royal British Legion. This will include items such as wristbands, pencils, keyrings, 1916-2016 commemorative badges, and of course the standard paper poppies.

Volunteers will be visiting forms and there will be a stall in the breakout space during lunchtimes both the week before the holidays (starting Monday 24th Oct) and the week after the holidays, (ending Friday 11th Nov) with a minute’s silence in school.

The Royal British Legion is a charity which assists in the rehabilitation of soldiers; providing financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependents. We would therefore appreciate any donations you could give over the duration of the event and hope you get involved in this very worthy cause.
