NASA has found a distant star circulated by 8 planets, equal to the complement in our own solar system. It is the largest number of worlds ever discovered in a planetary system outside our own.
Talk to your Science teacher about Kepler 90, and your tutor about the new "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" film - or me, as I intend to see it this weekend!

I wanted to take the time to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 8.
Arwen recently took part in the World Karate Championships in London. She is clearly an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team, female kata. She also won bronze in the team kumite and bronze again in mixed team kata with Luca Occhionero who’s one of our Year 7 students.
What an incredible achievement for both pupils!
Well done to lower sixth student Alice for achieving a bronze certificate in the UKMT Maths Challenge.
We are getting some lovely decorations brought to us for the competition we are running in Year 7.
Some really talented students who have real creative flair! Here are Eleanor, Daisy and Teigan's efforts - brilliant!
Congratulations to Katie who achieved a gold certificate in the UKMT Maths Challenge.
She also qualified for the prestigious Pink Kangaroo Competition.
We await her results with anticipation.
Thanks to everyone in the ARC for making the lunchtime club a great success.
Last week Mr Sayce met with the top 25 ATL students in the year group to congratulate them on their fantastic achievement and dedication to their studies.
All students were given a small prize and entered into the prize draw for a big box of Cadbury’s Heroes.
Congratulations to Lucy Mayes for winning the main prize but well done to all of you for your brilliant attitude to learning. Keep it up for the rest of the year! Mr Sayce

A Levels mocks in all A Level subjects take place between Thursday 4th and Tuesday 16th January 2018. I have provided all Year 13 students with a copy of the mock exam timetable and there is also a copy below. I will also provide advice to all Year 13 students regarding revision and how devise a revision timetable. It would be very helpful if you were able to discuss this at home.
We had an action packed day with Year 11 last week.. Taster Day saw 167 students sample an extensive range of our A Level and BTEC lessons. Year 11s taking part were challenged and engaged in a variety of different ways with classes conducted and led by experienced Sixth Form specialist teachers.. We welcomed a large number of external students and hope they all enjoyed the experience.
Year 8 have worked spectacularly well this term and there’s been an excellent atmosphere within all 8 forms as they’ve worked collaboratively in the extended interform competition. In total there have been 10 challenges and 2 are still ongoing.
We are running an Xmas competition in the run up to end of term in Year 7 and one of the challenges for students is to make the best Xmas decorations both for their form display and individually.
Students in 7LE were an absolute hive of activity and a there was a really lovely atmosphere in the room - I am so impressed with these students!
