Congratulations to BlackOut Racing on reaching the F1 in Schools UK National Finals.
The F1 in Schools™ STEM Challenge UK National Finals will showcase high flying talent, with 48 student teams competing for the F1 in Schools UK Champions title and a place at the World Finals later this year. The event being held from 11 – 12 March at Airbus’ West Factory in Broughton, Flintshire where wings for the company’s entire family of commercial aircraft are manufactured, will celebrate the best young minds and engineering flair.
Winning student teams from regional finals around the country will race their bespoke designs of miniature Formula 1 cars on the Official F1 in Schools 20 metre track, present their business plans, display their engineering designs and showcase their work to a panel of industry and engineering experts. The two-day competition tests their F1 car designs to the limit on track, as well as the students supporting work with a busy timetable of judging sessions.
Congratulations to all of the students who were nominated for Star of the Week this half term.
This is in recognition for excellence in or out of lessons, students' positive attitude, or academic achievement.
Keep up the good work.

We launched our new behaviour and reward policy in September 2019.
This week, the first students were rewarded for receiving 90 achievement points in the academic year, by joining me for the Head Teacher's breakfast. It was a lovely opportunity to chat to the students about their learning and experiences at the school. They were all thrilled to be invited to the breakfast, though I think one or two were disappointed it wasn't a full English!
Each year Carers Trust organises Young Carers Awareness Day.
The purpose of the day is to raise public awareness of the challenges faced by young people because of their caring role, and to campaign for greater support for young carers and their needs.
This year’s Young Carers Awareness Day will take place on Thursday 31 January 2019.
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.

Learning about different countries and their cultures is always fun. Currently, Year 8 are working on a topic relating to Kenya. In this topic we learn about weather and climate, tourism and development issues.
This week we have asked some Year 8 classes to produce a creative 3D map of Kenya to help them learn about this distant place but also to help improve their locational knowledge.
What students have produced has been great. These are just a few samples. Prizes were given out for the teams that worked the best together and for the most informative maps.
This year (as usual) many books are being turned into movies and adapted for television.
Challenge yourself to read some of the books before you see the film in the cinemas or on the television.
Come to reading group on Wednesday lunchtimes in the library to share your thoughts and hear other people’s. You don’t even have to have read the whole book to attend!
