Ecuador 2020 Expedition

We are extremely excited to be giving our current Year 9, 10 and 11 students the opportunity to travel to Ecuador with Camps International during the summer of 2020!

Here students will be working on a range of sustainable and meaningful community and conservation projects before venturing to the coast and scuba diving their way towards their PADI Open Water Certificate.

Parents and interested students are invited to attend our Ecuador Expedition Parents' Meeting to find out more. This will be taking place in the new year on Tuesday 5th February 2019 at 6:30pm in our main hall on Foxland Campus.

Year 7 and 8 Scholars Latin Course

Our Year 7 and 8 Scholars have recently spent the day immersed in an ancient world.

The Year 7 students were introduced to the Latin language led by our Year 8 students who were keen to demonstrate their knowledge.

Lots of friendly competition took place with the writing of Christmas greetings and school and personal motto’s in Latin. We are hoping to have more combined year group Scholars events to encourage a ‘Scholars Culture’ amongst our highest achieving students.

Christmas Fayre

On Thursday 20th December we are hosting a Christmas Fayre where students and staff try to raise as much money as possible to support our sister school, The Kolweny Kingsway School in Kenya.

This will be a non-school uniform day and each student is asked to donate £1. In the morning the sports hall will be converted in to our very own Christmas Fayre where students and staff will be able to enjoy food, drink and activities knowing that every penny raised will be going to Kolweny. We would like to remind students to bring cash for the Christmas Fayre as there will be no cashless facilities available.

This is a House based activity where all six Houses will be competing against each other to raise the most amount of money!

‘Speed Dating’ Careers Evening

Although this evening sounds as though it could be light hearted with our fun ‘Speed Dating’ theme, nothing could be further from the truth. This was our fifth year running this evening and we are proud to be able to deliver this to our Year 9 students.

The objective of this event was to assist our Year 9 students in choosing the subjects they wish to study at GCSE. Over 35 employers volunteered to help us with this exciting event. They talked to students and parents about future opportunities post-16.

We had a great turnout of students and their families at this event. The presentations were short but comprehensive and provided students with valuable advice for that area of work. Following each presentation there was time to ask specific questions before moving onto the next area of interest. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive from students, parents and the employers. There was a real ‘buzz’ to the proceedings and some parents offered their services to be involved in future career events!

A huge thank you to the employers who gave up their time in order to help our Year 9 students with their forthcoming GCSE decisions.
