Local Activities

Community Celebration Event 2018

Posted on

Pupils and staff organised a fantastic community event, supported by the Big Lottery Fund. Residents of the village, pupils from other local schools and members of the community visited the school and enjoyed a range of activities. The Mayor Martin Wrigley was also a special guest at the event.

Even in the pouring rain, the children performed songs and dances under the gazebos, and then visitors could enjoy a lovely fair trade cafe with superb cream teas and take part in some fair trade games and competitions. They also had the opportunity to read with the children, learn the guitar and practise their cross stitch.

Cockwood School Farmers Market – Friday 24th June from 9am

Posted on

The first ever Cockwood School Farmers Market is one not to be missed. Boasting a variety of delicious locally produced food, drink and crafted gifts.

Our class has worked hard to research and invite the very best of local suppliers. Stalls will include fresh meats, fruit and vegetables, eggs, beers, cakes, plants, soaps and a whole host of other local foodstuffs and locally made crafts.

As part of an enterprise project to start and run our own sustainable business we are pleased to announce the launch of the Cockwood School’s very own range of tasty chutneys. The brand new range of flavoursome Harbourside Chutneys have been lovingly researched and taste tested by the class 1 children. They finally settled on the three winning combinations: plum and violet, rhubarb with a hint of violet, and strawberry and apple.  All of which will be on sale for the very first time at our Farmers Market.

The Cockwood School Running Club welcomed Memory Maker Man to their session this week.

The children are competing in the Torbay Half Marathon in June and running to support his charity – THNN or Torbay Holiday Helpers Network, who support seriously ill children and their families by providing much needed holidays.

They help make memories for the children, and our school are proud to run on their behalf. Well done to our runners and good luck in the marathon!
