That was our SATS!
21 May 2018
Our Year 6 students recently completed their SATS and as a reward, they were treated to a well-earned ‘cinema’ screening and a trip to the park.
We were enormously impressed by the courage and composure that they showed throughout SATS week, they were a true credit to our school.
Our first Silver DofE expedition
16 April 2018
Our first ever DofE expedition saw us take seven Year 10 students to the New Forest to complete their Silver award practice trek. Despite a difficult, boggy terrain, which led to more than a few blisters, our students coped well with the challenge which included a night’s camping. The group now look forward to their qualifying expedition during the kinder climate of the summer term.
A very big thank you must go to Ray Carter and Viv Mace who supported the expedition, it was a thoroughly enjoyable 3 days spent with some first rate students.

Our Sports Leaders get off to a great start
23 February 2018
Our Year 10 Sports Leaders travelled to our North Bersted site where they ran the PE sessions for our Year 5 students. It was a great opportunity for the Year 10s to gain experience in planning and leading the sessions on their own; and It was greatly rewarding to watch the interaction between the different year groups. Both the Year 5s and the Sports Leaders loved every minute.
We hope to run different Primary Festivals for all the different year groups, which will bridge the gap between Primary and Secondary pupils. Our Sports Leader’s programme offers an amazing opportunity for pupils to gain different leadership skills through working with younger children. It ensures they and stand out against their peers when applying to college, university or the world of work.
Our SLT visit the Carmelite Convent
11 December 2017
Our Senior Leadership Team recently visited the Carmelite Convent to explore the site as it develops into our wonderful new school campus. The team were very inspired by the design of the spaces in which they will teach and our students will learn. We look forward to sharing more photographs with you as the campus develops.
