Primary Free School pupils gain practical skills...

After school clubs at the Gateway Primary Free School just get better and better! A selection of artistic pupils enjoy learning everything about hairstyles and the processes that happen every day in a working Hair Salon.

Using the excellent facilities at the adjoining Gateway Academy, the pupils visit the salon every week. They enjoy learning the theory behind the styles and the science that is involved in perming and colouring. Taking part in practical lessons are always an enjoyable part of the class, using rollers and various brush techniques to fine-tune their skills.

Club leaders, Ms Slaney and Ms Davies, said “The pupils really enjoy the sessions every week. They get to take part in various curriculum subjects whilst at the club, including art and science, without even realising it. We enjoy our weekly club and hope the pupils enjoy it as much as we do!”

Head of School, Mr Dan George, said “This is a fun and creative way for the pupils to learn about different subjects within the curriculum as part of our extra-curricular club timetable. The salon at the Gateway Academy is an ideal location for the pupils to experience what a real salon would be like.”
