School Officers’ Weekend

Published 20 June 2024

One of the most exciting aspects joining the student leadership team is the annual trip to St Cassian's. It’s a chance for the School Officer team to get together and discuss plans for the school, as well as making new friends and learning key skills. After we left school on Friday, we went to go and buy food for the night's cooking challenge and made our way to St Cassian’s, a retreat in Kintbury. After we had all set up our tents, we gathered in the room for an icebreaker. We had to write our names and tell the story behind them, some more interesting than others!

St Bart’s at Wembley

Published 18 June 2024

On Friday 7 June, 10 staff and 90 students made their way to Wembley to watch England play their final warm-up game before the Euros against Iceland. Traffic, as always, was bad, especially getting into the car park but we all made it in good time. We had an extremely long walk from the car park to the stadium, as we were the other side of the stadium and in the upper tier! Once we had got all the students in their seats, they were allowed to grab some food and drinks. Despite the attendance being over 80,000, the queues for food and drink weren't too long, thankfully. Sadly, the performance from the England players was nothing short of terrible, which made the game much less enjoyable for those of us watching.
