Year 8 Arts Activity Days

Year 8 Arts Activity Days will be taking place on Monday 5 March (Y half) and Thursday 8 March (X half). These are off-timetable days where students will take part in a series of practical workshops across the arts. The sessions will be delivered by visiting professionals and arts practitioners, experts within their field, and it promises to be a fantastic experience for all students. We are asking for a £5 voluntary contribution towards the running of the event which should be returned to the Finance Office as soon as possible.  Please click the link for further details.


Congratulations to the Year 7s who raised over £1500 for Lepra! Students took part in a wide range of activities, including a sponsored walk and a cake bake, culminating in a Zumba workout.  Individual students who raised £25 or more will be awarded a certificate from the Lepra charity. Thank you to the families and friends of our Year 7s for their support with this fantastic fundraising effort to help the charity combat leprosy.


Ski Trip

The ski trip returned at the end of the half term week having enjoyed some excellent skiing in Austria. Students were really appreciative of the staff who organised the trip; the staff reported back that the students were “a credit to the school”.


Bewerley Park

Year 7s have had an amazing time at Bewerley Park – taking part in new activities, overcoming challenges and making new friends.  The activities  included climbing at Brimham Rocks, mountain biking, canoeing, bushcraft skills, high and low ropes as well as evening challenges.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff involved, in particular Mrs Leeming and Miss Hopkins for leading the trip and Mrs McCabe, Mr Wilson, Mr Sweetman, Miss Sandever, Miss Cull, Mr Pears, Mr O’Sullivan, and Miss Hellawell for their support.
