Our Year 7 day trip to France
18 December 2017
Many thanks to students, parents and staff for supporting this new and exciting venture for the languages department. The trip aimed to given year 7 students a taste of French life at Christmas time and to allow them to try speaking a little French. We set off in the dark and returned in the dark but had a thoroughly sparkly time whilst there!
Students were able to see snow settled on low lying land in the French countryside and admire the distinctive architecture of the city of Lille. At the market they tried out a bit of French to buy chocolates, Christmas decorations, snacks and gifts to take home. The big wheel and café were also popular stops.
Particular thanks must go to the accompanying staff Mrs Agate, Mrs Melendez-Ruiz, Mr Day and Mrs Hobby.

16 May 2016
The Box Office is open for our upcoming production of Dracula. The show will be playing at Tangmere Village Centre at 7:30pm on Wednesday 25 and Friday 27 May, and at 1pm and 7.30pm on Saturday 28 May.
Dracula (a CFS adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic novel) tells the story of the original Nosferatu; a centuries old creature with the power to exert his will over humans. When Count Dracula seeks to spread his powers to England through unwitting estate agent Jonathan Harker, it falls to Lord Arthur Godalming, his Texan companion Quincey and seasoned vampire hunter Dr Abraham Van Helsing to stop him from spreading his evil to all four corners of the globe. With strong performances from an exceptionally capable cast, Dracula is a wonderful retelling of Stoker’s gothic tale and is surely one not to miss.
Please note, although this is a school production which we believe is suitable for a school audience, some younger children may find particular scenes scary, particularly if they have a fear of the dark. We would recommend that the performance is suitable for children in KS2 and above, but please do use your discretion.
Tickets are priced at £3 for concessions (any children under 18yrs and over 65yrs) and £6 for adults, and are limited to 80 for each performance. They are likely to sell out quickly, so log on to the online portal (Tucasi) to book your tickets. Alternatively, you will be able to complete and return the reply slip in the forthcoming letter about the play. Please note that there will be no physical tickets.
