It was Anti-Bullying Week on South Campus last week! Every student and member of staff wore stickers on Monday to raise awareness and then each tutor group created some wonderful pieces of work from posters and drawings to videos and songs! Thursday saw each student sign the Anti-Bullying pledge board and then on Friday we raised £430.00 for Children in Need where students wore blue and had year group photos taken holding blue cards to stand up to bullying. Work continues on this subject until Christmas through PSHE.
Key Stage 4 students on South Campus hosted a cake sale for MacMillan Coffee Morning on 29th September. Staff and students throughout the school baked and donated cakes. The final total raised was £283.00 a fantastic achievement thank you to all those that supported. Mrs Lawrence and the Upper College Team
On Wednesday 20 September EWS a group of teachers and school leaders from China visited the school to investigate our strengths in drama and the arts, and in provision for careers information, advice and guidance. The group spent time in lessons on both campuses, and talked to students and staff about these areas. It was a privilege to host the visitors, and they commended our students on their conduct and enthusiasm. Many thanks go to all those who made them feel so welcome.
On the 15th of June on South campus and on the 27th of June on North campus 100 Year 7 and 8 students took part in an Engineering workshop. They developed their team skills and built an elastic powered car.
Well done Year 7’s. Mrs Gillick.
