8/10/2020It was great to talk to prospective families yesterday at two of our Live Q&A Forums. We had some really good questions both from parents and children and we were pleased to be able to share information particularly on the pastoral set up and our Year 6 transition. We have one final Live Q&A Forum planned for tomorrow, Friday 9th October, at 9.30am. There are still a few spaces so if you would like to join us please follow this link. If you are unable to attend though and have questions you can still send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer them.
7/10/2020🌼 Wellbeing Week 🌼
When was the last time that you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? This week students have been learning about the benefits of taking 10 minutes out of their day to be mindful. During tutor time, students listened to a TED talk by Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe on refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. A very interesting watch!

These take huge amounts of effort and patience to create and Mr Watkins was very pleased with your work. Well done Year 7!
Meanwhile in Year 9 this week, our Food Tech groups have been tasting protein alternatives....we wonder whether they enjoyed them and if 'Meat Free Mondays' will be on their menu now?

5/10/2020Welcome to the start of Wellbeing Week!
Our Welfare, Pastoral and PSHE Teams have been busy putting together an exciting programme of activities for students, highlighting the importance of a healthy body and mind. This morning students listened to an assembly delivered by Miss Fry and Mrs De Gruchy on the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing, especially during this unprecedented time.
The team will be sharing lots of tips and resources throughout the week all with a view to promoting positive mental health. We will finish the week with "Hello Yellow", a mufti day to raise money for the charity Young Minds. Students can come to school in home clothes as long as they are wearing something yellow in exchange for a £1.50 donation. Money will be collected on the gates in the morning, unfortunately, no change can be given so please bring the exact amount.
