  • Thursday 21 October 2021 U16 Boys Basketball Smash the Competition! Fantastic win for the U16 Boys Basketball team in their first fixture of the year winning 24-18. The team has been busy practicing on Wednesdays and Thursdays every week of this term.. The club regularly has seen over 35 students attending each session so it was incredibly hard for myself to select just eight students. During the game each player performed to a very high level with lots of effort and willingness to play attacking basketball. The benefits of the weeks of training were clearly evident. Well done to the team and we are looking forward to the next fixture where we are looking to record another win.

  • Thursday 21 October 2021 History Film Club The History Department has started a History Film Club encouraging students to explore wider historical issues outside of the classroom. In September, students watched a documentary on the American 9/11 World Trade Centre to mark the twentieth anniversary and to enable students to understand the cause and consequences of the disaster. Students were shocked but interested by the event, as it was not in living memory for them. This sparked many students' interest in History and encouraged students to develop their knowledge on expanding areas of history. During the month of October, students have been engaging in the ‘Black and British- A forgotten History’ to help celebrate Black History Month.
