  • Year 9 Stephen Lawrence Day Activities

    Published 12/05/21

    Year 9 recently had an assembly on the topic "The Legacy of Change", produced by The Stephen Lawrence Foundation.  After watching an excerpt from the recent BBC documentary about Stephen Lawrence, Year 9 spent some time reflecting upon the main themes from the documentary before exploring ways to make a change which involved spreading kindness and engaging in 'random acts of kindness'.  The celebratory assembly at the end of the week showcased contributions from each tutor group.  Posters with positive messages from Year 9 have also been displayed throughout the school.

  • Finalist - Global Wool4School Competition

    Published 07/05/21

    Our Year 10 Design and Technology students recently entered the prestigious Wool4School competition.


    Wool4School is an annual student design competition encouraging young designers to showcase their talent. The competition is open to secondary school students in Australia, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Italy. The design brief this year was to design an outfit which was versatile, protective, dynamic and functional in order to aid a commute as you travel. Wool should have been the main fibre, making up at least 70% of the outfit, comprising up to 4 pieces.


    One of our many school entries was from Hanan Kara.  Hanan's design was selected to be part of the Top 10 entries out of some 100,000 entries worldwide.  She designed a garment to wear whilst scooting to work (please see below) and she was invited to attend a special webinar led by a panel of industry experts where the winners would be unveiled.  Hanan narrowly missed being placed in the top 3 but nevertheless, her shortlisting was a fantasist achievement in itself given that there were over 100,000 competition entries.
