Harvest Festival Appeal

Students, staff and parents responded overwhelmingly to the annual Harvest Appeal. Many boxes of tins and packets of groceries were collected. Half the donations were delivered to Loose Ends and half to Fair Close Centre.

Thank you to everyone for your response to this Appeal.


Evers Cake Sale

On Monday Evers students had a fabulous cake sale looking to raise money for the House Charity, MENCAP. The tutees of E5 brought in many delightful home baked cakes which were quickly purchased by students in the school. By the end of activity time we had raised £57.50 for Mencap.


20 Mile Walk for Cancer Care

Year 7 student, Charlie, has raised a staggering £1710 for Newbury Cancer Care, his House charity by walking to Hungerford and back.

Former Curnock House Head, Mike Hart, gave an assembly at the start of term, encouraging students to raise money for Curnock’s chosen charity which assists local people facing cancer diagnoses. Charlie decided he would do his bit by walking 20 miles and asking for sponsorship.


Geography Fieldwork

On Tuesday 12 November a group of Year 9 Geography students carried out some physical geography fieldwork within the school grounds.

The aim of the fieldwork was to compare infiltration rates between four different sites; in the nature reserve under trees and in long grass, on the field and on the hard standing.

The class were divided into groups with each group given the equipment they needed. At each site the infiltration tube was pushed into the ground and 15cm of water added.


Remembrance Day Service

On Monday 11 November, the whole school gathered in the hub for the annual St Bart's Remembrance Service. In addition to all students and staff, the service was attended by ex-servicemen, governors and members of the Parents’ Association and Old Newburians’ Association.


CCF Field Day At HMS Collingwood

Last month the combined Year 11 and 10 cadets, with seven Sixth Form NCOs, of the Royal Navy section had a gruelling, challenging and muddy experience at HMS Collingwood, the Royal Navy Leadership Academy.

Over 50 cadets completed the obstacle course, particularly enjoying the fact that the heavy rain of the last weeks had filled the water hazards to the brim and turned every ditch into a quagmire of thick, brown, slimy mud! There was also great fun completing Practical Leadership Tasks under the command of Sixth Form NCOs, as the cadets worked in teams to cross pits of lava, safely dispose of radioactive waste and rescue battlefield casualties against the clock.
