Students Vs Staff Netball Match

April 4, 2014 in Front Page News by Miss C Keevil

Staff and students went head to head for an end of season netball match recently. It was a swift start to the match with the students in the lead by three goals. However, the staff team soon took the lead with some excellent attack and defensive work. A final result of 17, 8 reflected both teams determination. Well done to Mrs Davies who was voted staff player of the match and Morgan McCutheon, year 10, who was voted pupil player of the match. Miss Kinrade would like to thank the staff and students for making the last training session so enjoyable.

March 20, 2014 in Front Page News by Mr P Andrews

Congratulations to our winning students and all those who represented the school – a fantastic achievement.

IMG_1605Three teams of students attended the 2014 Rotary Technology Tournament at Hunday Manor on Friday 14th March. They were challenged to create a tool to lift, move and place a ‘radioactive meteor’ accurately without getting closer than 1.5 metres. They had a minimum amount of tools and basic materials to use, and were also assessed on their teamwork and design portfolio.

There were 12 teams at their level, and our Y8s not only won first prize, but best portfolio too. Our Y9s came second, only a point behind, and theY7 team was not too far off either! Well done to all who took part!!
