This term our English teacher Mr Wilkinson (who loves English that much he is sometimes seen around school casually leaning against a wall reading a book) has found a place for his other passion. No, we are not talking about Birmingham City FC (that would be quite a stretch in a Man City and Man United jungle!) but his love for taking old unloved bikes and giving them a fresh lease of life.

Below are a couple of photos from Mr Wilkinson’s new Bicycle Maintenance sessions with year 11, which form part of the Enrichment & Vocational Curriculum. The course is well underway now and the standout student so far has been Theo who has shown a real thirst for developing his knowledge and skills in this area.
