Huge well done to our Under 13 Girls Football Team who competed in the semi-final of the Cardiff City FC Foundation 6-a-side tournament.  The girst lost out to Llangynwyd, the eventual winners of the tournament, but it was a fantastic achievement to reach the semi-final stage.  Well done girls we are very proud of you all.

Thank you to all the students and staff who brought in items for the Food Bank collection to help those less fortunate than us this Christmas. We donated a huge amount to two local organisations, Stow Park Community Centre and Christchurch Food Bank.


On Monday 18th December, student representatives from each Form Group who are members of the Student Council were invited to take part in a 'Question Time', posing questions to a panel of staff members.  Mrs C Handley, Assistant Headteacher organised the event as part of the school's commitment to listening to our Student Voices.  Members of the Sixth Form Senior Student Team facilitated.

The event was modelled on the TV programme, Question Time, with the panel made up of:

  • Mrs L Picton - Headteacher
  • Mr A Jenkins - Site Manager
  • Mrs M Jones - Chartwell's Catering Manager
  • Mr C Maidment - Head of Business Studies (and also Digital Learning)

The panel answered questions from the student audience and they in turn will take their answers and feed back to the students in their form groups.

The event was a great success with both sides of the debate benefiting from hearing each other's views.  We are sure it will be repeated in the future.

Well done to everyone who took part.
