VE Day Street Party

Year 5 celebrated the end of their World War 2 topic with a VE day street party.
The children made some authentic 1940s biscuits using their rations, then decorated their tables with flags and bunting. We then took to the playground where we ate, drank and took part in some 1940s swing dancing!
Over the last few weeks the children have experienced air raids and been evacuated to Lotherton Hall, so what better way to celebrate than with a street party!

Winter Sports Day

Over 300 pupils in years 7 - 9 competed in our annual Winter Sports Day! Pupils took part in benchball, football, dodgeball, rugby, American Football, badminton and/or basketball in their House teams, in a bid to crown their House the overall winners.

It was great to see so many pupils getting involved and giving their all in the different sports.

The overall results from the day are as follows:

1st - Tomlinson House - 7830 points

2nd - Trueman House - 7750 points

3rd - Bremner House - 6650 points

4th - Robinson House - 6620 points

Well done Tomlinson House for their (very close) victory!

Geographers visit London

Year 10 Geography pupils' attended a fantastic Geography Residential Visit to London!

Some of the highlights from the trip include a visit to the Royal Geographical Society, Buckingham Palace, a flight on the London Eye, an evening meal in an Italian restaurant, a regeneration talk in the Olympic Park, a ride down the worlds longest funnel slide and finally, a cruise down the River Thames.

All pupils who attended were a credit to school and everyone had a brilliant time, making the trip a great success.

Thank you from the Geography Department.
