22/06/2021Would you like to see your artwork on posters, flags and big screens across the country? The Royal Household in partnership with the V & A is inviting young people aged 13 – 25 to design an emblem for The Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
This is a really exciting opportunity and really worth having a go at! The design must include a royal crown, must not be an image of the Queen and can be drawn free hand or on the computer. There is lots more information about the competition available via the link below so do take a look. The deadline for entries is not far away, Friday 16th July at 6pm.
We would love to see your entries so do send them in to your Art teacher and if you are entering, good luck! We can't wait to see how you get on.

Our very own Woolmer Hill Shadowers' judging panel, made up of students from Years 7-9, have been busy since March reading the shortlist so that they could nominate their own winner. Last week the group got together in year groups and, over cupcakes, discussed the books and voted for their favourites. The Woolmer Hill Award winner was a tie between.....

16/06/2021During lockdown earlier this year, three of our Year 10 students entered a competition, Poetry for Good, that was focused on celebrating the UK’s keyworkers during the pandemic. The three girls, Maddie P, Leah P and Lauren J, entered their poem into the Growing Word category, for poems over 250 words long. We are delighted to say that, although they didn’t win, their poem has been published on the competition website as one of the top 100 entries! Well done, girls, amazing work!
15/06/2021Our Year 11 "Garden Party" Prom is coming up on 24th June; always a much anticipated event for our school leavers. However, we also understand that amongst the excitement, for some, there might also be a few nerves and we don't want such a key event to cause any negative emotions for our students. If you are at all concerned about anything prom related; what to wear, who to arrive with, how much it will cost, how to get here, how to do your hair and make up, how to get home or anything else that you might be finding daunting, please pop along and have a chat with Miss Fitzwilliams in the Welfare Office or drop her an email. She is on hand for all prom related worries and is very willing to talk to or help anyone who needs it.
