German Exchange

Yesterday, 25 students and 4 staff headed to Speyer in south-western Germany for the second leg of this year’s German Exchange, in what is the 16th year of our partnership with the Gymnasium am Kaiserdom school. Our students will be staying with host families and as well as attending lessons in our partner school they will be taking part in a variety of trips and experiences whilst there. We wish them a “gute Reise”.

Science Lab Club

The students of school lab club have started the festive season with a Christmas tree, celebrating all things science. Their project has included some of the traditional aspects of science including; photosynthesis of pond weed, a magnet used as a compass and the pH scale. The tree has been brought into the 21st century with ferro-fluid, a magnetic fluid that behaves in amazing ways along with aqua-beads that absorb water to become invisible to detect. My thanks to Mrs Horman and the Science Technicians for their support.

Christmas Market

What a fantastic Christmas Market we had last night. Thank you to everyone who helped plan and run the event as well as everyone who came to support and help on the night. We hope you all had fun!
