The retreat on the 25th February for Year 8 and 9 was given by the Castlerigg group led by Fr. Philip with a team of enthusiastic, talented young people. It included games, drama, clips, testimony and reflection. Castlerigg praised the pupils for their excellent response. The day got ‘ten out of ten’ from the majority of pupils who gave feedback. Here are some of their thoughts:
Year 10 and 11 pupils had their interview skills put to the test during a Work Ready Day to prepare them for the world of work. Over 30 business including the Police, NHS and Army were invited to school to act as interviewers. All pupils answered the questions really well and feel they now feel prepared to tackle interviews in the future. Well done to all pupils involved.
Each day during Lent this calendar offers a different surprise clip, or prayer or something to think about. Sometimes it features a famous person from film, music, science or other walk of life.

On Tuesday 4th March , fourteen pupils took part in the UDANCE festival at the Theatre by The Lake, Keswick. This festival is open to all pupils from reception to sixth form across Cumbria, and is an opportunity to express the curriculum through dance and performance.
Our pupils produced a performance based on the novel “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck and the dance was named “Broken Dreams”. The students involved in this have all performed during their own time, giving up their lunch breaks in order to rehearse and put together this dance.
