Exam Revision Clinics

We would encourage as many of our senior students as possible to make good use of our exam revision clinics in the run up to our Prelim examinations which are scheduled to take place from 18/1/2016 – 29/1/2016.
HOUSE COMPETITION – FOODBANK COLLECTION

Over the next few weeks there will be a House Competition taking place which will give pupils the opportunity to win House points. We are encouraging pupils to bring in non-perishable items which we will donate to a local foodbank to help people in our community who are less fortunate than ourselves. House Captains will give out cards at tutor time which have a list of food we are looking for. The competition will run from 2nd December – 18th December, and the house which collects the most food will win the most points!

As a school we have made a brilliant effort to raise money for a variety of charities so far! Let’s make a big effort to help others in need, especially as it comes closer to Christmas! If you would like any more information please come and see Miss Simonini or Mr Clark in the P.E Department!
