Third Key Concept Day

Our Year 7 pupils recently took part in their third CET Key Concept Day. The Key Concept Days are organised by our Creative Education Trust HQ and are supported by a practicing designer. The Key Concept days are devised to enable the students to develop their understanding of the individual concepts and then use them to connect their knowledge. This time they explored the concept of ‘Meaning’ by creating drawings and shapes. The results were fantastic and the children had a great time throughout the day. To find out more about the key concepts have a look at this video.

Year 7 Easter Egg Hunt

Our Year 7 pupils know their school pretty well by now, and this stood them in good stead today, 1 April 2019, when they all took part in an Easter egg hunt. Covering almost every corner of the school grounds they had to identify places and features which they did with great enthusiasm. All were rewarded with a chocolate egg for their efforts.

Maths challenge success

We’re very impressed with the results of our young mathematicians who took part in the Intermediate Maths Challenge recently. Our pupils achieved 15 Bronze, 7 Silver and 4 Gold certificates! The latter four, pupils from year 9, 10 and 11, automatically qualified for the European round this month – a fantastic achievement.
Well done to all the pupils who took part and to Mr Farman for inspiring them with his enthusiasm for all things Maths and homemade cake.

British Science Week 2019

It’s British Science week and our STEM Coordinator Ms Rix has again created a week of wonderful and exciting activities for our pupils to take part in. Lots of them have signed up for experiments, treasure hunts and talks by scientists and engineers. The ever popular water rockets are back, and there will be a science cake competition and judging by last year’s entries we are in for a treat.

Art students visit Tate Modern

For the second time 50 GCSE Art students visited Tate Modern in London on 4 February 2019. They experienced an incredible variety of work, spanning many decades and from a fascinating range of different artists, inspiring them for their own work. They viewed the gallery in small groups, allowing them to follow their interests and develop their confidence. They were a credit to their school; on the way home they were buzzing from the experience.
Thanks you to Miss Dobson and Mrs Dougherty for organising the trip and to Lucy for taking such great pictures.
