  • Open Evening

    Published 26/09/22

    On 26 September, we welcomed prospective Year 6 students and their parent/carers to our Open Evening to tour the school, meet the teachers and attend one of three talks, by the Headteacher. Each faculty showcased their subjects in various classroom workshops around the school to give the prospective students a flavour of that subject, to engage their interest and imaginations!  The event was well attended with over 1200 people through the door and attending the talks.

    Several follow-up ‘Open Mornings’ have been offered to families who were not able to attend the Open Evening or who want to see more of the school and observe live lessons.

  • Year 13 Geography Field Trip to Dorset

    Published 23/09/22

    Between 20 and 23 September, a group of 5 Year 13 geographers visited Dorset to complete a range of fieldwork activities in preparation for their NEA. 

    On Tuesday 20, we travelled down to Dorset and started our fieldwork on coastal management in Swanage. The students conducted an experiment to test whether longshore drift was occurring at Swanage Bay by throwing an apple into the sea and calculating the speed and distance it travelled along the coastline. They then undertook a range of surveys to determine how effective each management strategy is. They also interviewed members of the public to find their views. We also managed to squeeze in an ice-cream for our efforts! Later we travelled the short distance to our accommodation, a picture perfect cottage, near Corfe Castle.
