Principal's Blog - Friday 6th May

Well done to Year 11 students who have made an excellent start to their GCSE exams this week. A reminder that a schedule of exams and pre exam workshops for the week ahead is published on our website under the students tab ‘Year 11 Revision and Support.’

Students from across the Key Stage 3 worked with Nigel George, Hannah George and Ian Boyd this week on the exciting Royal Society Partnership Project. Our students have been chosen to work alongside researchers, artists and engineers to complete a year long cross curricular research and action project. The project is studying the bio armour requirements to save the shores and coastline in a unique study on the Sandown/Yaverland intertidal zone.



Our cricket teams have enjoyed success this week, with the U13 girls’ team beating the Free School and the U15 boys team beating Christ the King.


Well done to all students taking part in Yellow House Walk today to raise money for Earl Mountbatten Hospice. I hope all of you manage to relax and soak your feet this weekend!


Enjoy your weekend.
