We were proud to march together as a school at the Remembrance Sunday parade. Members of the public emailed our Principal, Mr Martyn to tell him how moved they were by the excellent behaviour of our students throughout the procession.
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.
A night of spells…
15 January 2016
All CFS witches and wizards from Year 2 through to Year 5, are cordially invited to attend a very special ‘Night of Spells’. You may choose to fly in on either the 3rd or 4th of February from 6 – 7pm. You will be rewarded with a range of mystical activities, a magic show and a glass of Butter Beer.
Only 50 magic tickets are available for each evening and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. We ask for a voluntary contribution of £5 to cover costs.
This week is anti-bullying week at CFS
16 November 2015
This week is our anti-bullying week, a very important part of the School calendar. We will have assemblies highlighting the important messages as well as a variety of events taking place throughout, including a non-uniform day towards the end of the week. Our anti-bullying ambassadors will then give a presentation on their day up in London to the whole of Secondary.
Greenpower at the Top Gear test track!
6 October 2015
Sunday 20 September saw us take part in our third Greenpower event this year – the Dunsfold Heat. The team travelled up to the Top Gear test track for a fabulous day’s racing, sailing through the Scrutineering. After a great practice session, we then raced. Each Greenpower F24 event consists of two 90 minutes endurance races where we try to travel as far as possible with the energy in two small 12V batteries.
The CFS team did brilliantly, beating some much more experienced teams. Although we won’t make the final at Goodwood in October but we have gathered enough data on our car’s performance to give us plenty of ideas for improvements we can make over the winter. After all the main purpose of Greenpower is the engineering and development of the car rather than the racing !
During the event, the West Sussex Triumph Owners Motor Cycle Club presented us with a cheque for £1,000. Thanks to their incredible generosity, we can now buy a Goblin kit from Greenpower to enable our primary pupils to take part in Greenpower race events.
The CFS Greenpower Club runs on Saturday mornings during term time. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs Williams if your child is interested in joining.
