Our Year 10 students excelled themselves this week during their one-to-one interviews with a range of local employers as part of their careers programme. The school has received some very positive feedback, with the visitors describing the students as a credit to the school. I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to all of those who attended and ensured that our students were able to access such a valuable opportunity.

Our Sports Day was completed in glorious weather and it was a pleasure to see the excited and enthused students really enjoy what was such a positive event. Our excellent sporting tradition has been to the fore throughout the year, with recent success in the District Athletics and this week’s superb boys and girls cricket fixtures against the MCC a wonderful conclusion for our outstanding sports stars.

On Wednesday our Twitter feed was in overdrive showcasing the superb Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – STEM –  curriculum day event. Our students engaged in activities including: F1 Engineering, 4X4 radio controlled car courses, tallest tower constructions, the Maths Hat challenge, and cryptography challenges. The STEM departments put a lot of thought into the day and it was clear that the students really enjoyed the experience.
