Bryanston Trip

Dr Gavin Hesketh from UCL identified that we are at a major turning point in Physics. His work and that of his colleagues at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN hasn’t found anything new since the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012 and as such both practical and theoretical physicists stand ready to find new physics, it’s just that nobody is sure what to expect!

Our Sixth Form students were able to ask questions and develop their understanding at another fantastic Bryanston Science Society lecture. Thank you Miss Horman for attending as supporting staff. The next lecture will be in the new year with the title of ‘Adventures in the outer solar system’.

Anti-Bullying Week

On the 17th November, we are running an “Odd Socks Day” as part of Anti-Bullying Week. We would love for everyone to be involved in this.

Kintbury Retreat

A number of Sixth Form students are off to St Cassian’s Centre, a Youth Retreat Centre, in Kintbury tomorrow . Students will be able to take time out to reflect, make new friends and retreat from the daily pressures of 6th form life.

This is a great opportunity for students to recharge their batteries, encounter God, and become reacquainted with themselves!

Poppy Appeal

This week our Sixth Formers have been busy selling poppies every morning before registration. Thanks to all for volunteering your time and let’s all wear out poppy with pride.
