Well done to all students who took part in reading challenge. Some of them met in Mr Jones's room on Wednesday lunchtime and discussed what they had been reading. The range of books was very wide, and the enthusiasm was excellent.

Look out for more reading events through the year.

If you weren't able to come to the meeting and would like to hand in your form, bring it to Mr Jones in WS07


In July some of our students participated in a competition run by maths games website Mangahigh.

The competition was called 'Boss of the South' and it involved over 600 other Secondary schools in the South of England competing for prizes (and a £250 Amazon voucher!).

The students were challenged with the task of earning over 150 points during the competition. To earn these points, they had to complete various Mangahigh Maths challenges and play Mangahigh Maths games.

Well done to our top scoring students in Mangahigh's Boss of the South competition. The school won £100 and many students received individual prizes.

A great team effort!

Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.

The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.

Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
