Year 11 Geography Field Visit to Rushall Farm

On Thursday 26 and Friday 27 September, we took our Year 11 Geography students to Rushall Farm, near Bradfield. The aim of the visit was for students to collect river data to help them prepare for the Paper 3 Skills exam next summer.

After putting on our waders and listening to a briefing from the Rushall Farm staff, we all set off in groups on a tractor and trailer to different sites along the River Pang.


Royal Navy Competence Course

In July I went sailing with two goals, one to obtain my competent crew qualification, the other to get from Portsmouth to Milford Haven in 11 days. I was able to accomplish both.

There was plenty to learn for a first-time sailor like myself. The crew were organised into two watches, spending four hours on/four hours off.


Clay Club

Last term staff and students alike enjoyed the after school Clay Club run by our Art Technician and Potter, Lizzy McCracken. Students and staff came along for the four week two hour sessions, learning to throw on the potter’s wheel as well as slab building techniques, decorating with metal oxides and glazing. Everybody went home at the end of the course with a lovely slab built box and various wheel thrown creations.


Year 10 Meet Olympic Athlete Toby Garbett

The Year 10 Living for Sport group had the opportunity to work with Olympic Rower and Tri Athlete Toby Garbett at our recent Open Evening.

Toby worked with the group introducing them to a variety of team building skills and activities which the group then shared with the visiting Year 5 and 6 students who were attending the Open Evening.
