(Photograph) - A week in the life of Cordeaux High School, Lincolnshire

Cordeaux has a foot in the past and an eye on the future. This 550-pupil rural school near the market town of Louth sits astride the Greenwich meridian, and, says headteacher Philip White, "reflects the timeless quality of rural Lincolnshire with an emphasis on the traditional values of a bygone age".

The school is committed to a learning experience that goes well beyond the confines of the prescribed curriculum, as this set of pictures shows. So whether it's stressing creativity in sixth-form drama productions, or the spiritual, cultural and moral dimensions on an REhistory trip to Lincoln Cathedral, collecting for charity on Red Nose Day, or a school skiing trip abroad, staff and pupils show their determination to celebrate individual attainment and community values. The millennium starts here in more ways than one.
