  • On Tuesday 25 September and Thursday 4 October we went on our Geography field trips, to collect primary data for our A Level coursework. The days started off with early coach trips to Studland Bay and Oxford, followed by us independently exploring the relevant sites for data collection. 

    We were all doing different investigations and it was really interesting to see the different collection methods used by everyone. read more

  • Last Thursday we celebrated the success of our students over the last three years, giving an important ‘launch pad’ for KS4 and examination courses. This annual event in the style of an Oscars ceremony was a wonderful evening where students, families and staff celebrated together.

    A special mention must also go to the four pieces of entertainment, chosen by the Houses. The quality of music and dance we all enjoyed was stunning.

    Congratulations to all concerned, and to our students, we look forward to celebrating your further and future success at the end of KS4! 

  • During the summer term, six girls had the pleasure of taking part in a six-week golf course. During the course the girls learned the fundamentals of golf, such as putting, driving and the correct stance. They also got to take advantage of the amazing simulation room at the golf club. The girls all had a wonderful, informative experience that they would certainly recommend to anyone interested in golf as a potential sport. A special thank you to Barry Newman at Newbury and Crookham Golf Club for such a fantastic opportunity.

  • Recently in Activity Time a bustling Societies Fair took place where students had a chance to find out about and join clubs and groups such as the Christian Union, Knit and Natter, Speedcubing, Music, Drama, Sadfic, Environment, Scrabble, LawSoc, MedSoc, Debating, Badminton, RElevance, Art, PE, Film/Cineclub, Graphics, Creative Writing/English, Board Games, Origami, Chinese, MFL Exchanges, Colour Me Calm and Chess.

  • On Tuesday 18 September, the Graphics Department took all Year 11 GCSE Graphics students to Marwell Zoo for the day. The students are aiming to develop their own branding and promotion for the different animal enclosures at the zoo as part of their coursework.

    Students had the opportunity to photograph the animals and their different environments. Due to the lovely weather, most of the animals were out and about. The highlights for both staff and students were the tigers, giraffes and otters!
