Year 12 joint Biology & Geography field trip 2016
87 students and 7 staff set off for the Isle of Wight on the joint field trip on the 11th March for 4 days of hard work and fun. We had really warm weather, so the layers of thermals were thankfully not needed this year! We stayed at the PGL site, Little Canada and were very well looked after there by the field studies staff, with the girls working in groups of 6 with specialist instructors.
Chinese New Year - Year 7 got busy recently making Chinese Dumplings as part of our Chinese New Year Celebrations.
Students enjoyed this fun activity as part of the Chinese Art and Culture Club. Any student in year 7 wishing to join the club come to F13 on Tuesday lunchtime at 12.40pm.
The GCSE Certificate Evening took place on 24 November and was very well attended. The certificates were presented by Paralympian, Wheelchair Rugby Captain (London 2012), Steve Brown. Steve Brown had an extraordinary sporting career; despite an accident in June 2005 that changed his life forever.
