Alton Towers
A hugely successful trip to Alton Towers with 47 year 9 students. Two beautiful, hot days were spent riding roller-coasters and going spinny spinny fasty fasty. The students were a credit to themselves and the school and all had a fantastic time.
Thank you from Mr Watkins, Mr Clooney, Ms Kiff, Ms Dixon, Ms White and Ms Jenkinson.

Duke of Edinburgh 2019

Sunday saw the first 3 teams of this year’s cohort complete their bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition on Exmoor’s ‘wild country’ (Exmoor being 1 of 32 areas in England deemed as ‘raising the bar!’)

Well done to each & every one of them – they had ups & they had downs (some had some more ups & downs) but each & every team completed despite some new fence boundaries being erected that threw in map reading confusion.

A massive thanks to Claire, Kay & Mr Strickland for the organising and to Mr Clooney for camping with us. Also thanks to Mr Lewis and all the parents for helping & supporting this weekend.

Roll on these guys taking on silver & our next cohort of bronze 2019.

Latest Riding Club news

Last Thursday was the last meeting of Riding Club for this academic year. It was wonderful to see how much progress everyone had made, as we celebrated with a clear round competition. There were very few poles down and great adaptability as riders swapped from one horse or pony to another.

A marvellous set of riders, and we hope to recruit more next year. Many thanks to Catherine at Collacott and to Mrs Smith for her help with taking the register.

Trek Fest success!

Trek Fest – the students taking part were amazing and dug right in, as did the staff that helped – it was an incredible achievement and a really lovely afternoon.
The talented musicians added to the atmosphere, the weather was kind, the cadets dedicated, parents supportive and the whole afternoon/evening had such a lovely feel to it.

Well done everyone.

Principal’s Tea ~ rewarding sustained hard work and great behaviour.

On Friday 12 July 2019 we held our first Principal’s Tea.

This event was to celebrate the exemplary behaviour of students within new year 9.

Cake and drinks, followed by frisbee and a ‘kick around’ in the sunshine. Mr Jones lost 2 frisbees on the roof and Mrs Allin showed her competitive side.

Thank you to Mrs Hearn who organised the event and to the canteen staff and Mrs Preston who helped with the food preparation.

A really enjoyable afternoon, with many happy faces. We hope to roll a similar event out to other exemplary students in the next year.
