We recently had a fantastic result for both our boys’ and girls’ Y7/8 indoor athletics teams who competed at the School Games County Finals at Bisham Abbey. Our athletes competed to a high level throughout the afternoon and their efforts were justly rewarded at the end of the competition as both the girls’ team and the boys’ teams finished in a very impressive 3rd place out of 16 schools. Well done and thank you to all involved in these events.
For the fourth year in a row 'Beatz' dance troupe from St Bart's put on a tremendous performance as part of Spring Equinox at the Corn Exchange this week. The super talented and committed dancers performed an original piece of choreography called 'Youth' to a packed auditorium. A combination of lyrical contemporary with a few urban tricks thrown in, the dancers filled the stage with reckless magic!
From 9-19 February 2018, I took a trip to Upper West Ghana with my mum and brother to do some work with ATE, a charity based in Ramsbury. After a few months of my brother volunteering with ATE for his Duke of Edinburgh Award we were invited to Ghana to see the work they do.
The Young Enterprise area cup competition took place on March 14 at Arlington Arts Centre, Newbury. At the end of the evening St Bart's team DMND were awarded the prize for Best Trade stand which was judged at the Kennet Centre in Newbury in February.
Silva Deco, also from St Bart's, were the winners of the Most Innovative Product award, the judges were very impressed with their range of homemade products. They were also runners up for Best Trade stand and for the Dragons’ Den award.
The Eton Fives under 12 National Championships were recently attended by St Bart's students from Year 7. The event was attended by participants from all over the country, including 80 playing pairs. The first round was made by combining pairs into groups of 6 pairs. These groups were split into two sections (3 pairs each) and of these sections every pair played each other.
The results of this assessment come from ALPS, an organisation which supports schools in monitoring students’ progress at KS4 and KS5.
Get advice on how to reduce exam stress and anxiety from 6:30pm tomorrow (Wednesday 21st March) evening in the Main Hall at St Bart's. All students, parents and carers welcome.
The evening kicked off with an impromptu variation on a theme of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, duetted by Marc Jenner and Michael Seath. Isaac also treated us to a splendid rendition of the Theme from Game of Thrones, the grand piano sounding particularly resonant in the foyer. Maggie Leung's rendition of Beethoven's Pathetique was very moving, as was Isabelle Lloyd's playing of Bouree 1 and Apres un rêve by Fauré.
