Beauty and the Beast was really brilliant; funny, sad and magical. So much work goes into these shows so thank you so much.
This stunning showcase of talent was an absolute joy to watch and I would like to extend my thanks and congratulations to the school for encouraging and developing the talents of its student body and for its commitment to the expressive arts.
Another amazing production! A wonderful evening. Well done to everyone involved. A well deserved standing ovation.

The Spring Term of 2016 has started in a vibrant and positive fashion, with staff and students resuming their work in earnest. I would like to thank parents and carers for the crucial support which you offer your children, to encourage and promote their learning.
Congratulations to Year 12 student, Emily Spampanato, who has been chosen as the regional NODA Best Young Performer of 2015 for her role as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”. The photo below shows Emily being congratulated by the show’s producer, Head of Drama and Dance, Mrs Sally Scurrell.
Last week saw the launch of STEM Club, for students in Years 8 and 9 who have been nominated by their teachers for aptitude and interest in Science, Design Technology, ICT and Maths. Alongside staff from those departments, the club is being run by John Parnum, an accredited STEM Ambassador. Each student will be working towards a bronze British Science Association CREST Award certificate to be completed by the end of the school year. In the first session, students, working in teams, were set various construction challenges, including building the highest tower and the strongest bridge, using only spaghetti and marshmallows as building materials!
This week, STEM club members will be guests at the Sixth Form Headspace lecture by leading astronomer, Professor Max Pettini from the University of Cambridge. Professor Pettini will be exploring the mysteries of Dark Energy as he delivers his photographically exemplified talk entitled “Weighing the Universe with the Lightest Elements”.
Have a great week!
