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.
We were Top of the Bench in Chemistry
27 November 2017
A team of four Year 9, 10 and 11 Chemistry students were chosen to take part in the Top of the Bench Mid Southern Counties 2017 competition at Portsmouth Grammar School, which was funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The students carried out two experiments where they had to work collaboratively in order to complete the experiments on time and with good results. They then had to draw up a results table and draw a graph independently. The students also had to complete a quiz and they attended a lecture by a University of Southampton lecturer where they learnt how Chemistry is important for a sustainable future, as well as watching how dry ice and liquid nitrogen change the properties of different substances.
Towards the end of our full day out, our CFS team were presented with an award for ‘Innovation’ as they were recognised for working effectively and efficiently as a team; they split up the different jobs they had to complete during the experiments between them in order to work quickly and well.
