On Monday 6th June the Dare to Dream Project reached its finale with a workplace visit to Gatwick Airport. A group of students were invited to attend Gatwick with their mentors to see the world of work, behind the scenes.
A group of Year 7 students have been making the most of the allotment on the school site. They have been meeting up on Wednesday at lunchtime to set up the allotment and have enjoyed getting stuck into planting vegetables and herbs as well as assisting in putting up a new fence.
Oxford University Research Project and Essay Prize - Year 12 Successes!
Well done to Ellie Murphy-Smith and Lexi Randell who have been offered places on the St. John’s College (Oxford University) Inspire Research Project. Both Ellie and Lexi will have the opportunity to research a particular topic. Ellie will be questioning "Why do 'untranslatable' words exist?"; and Lexi will be exploring the question "Should older children be allowed to decide if they should be taken into care?". Both students will also be offered academic support from Oxford University to help them with their research, as well as a financial award in order to purchase relevant books. A visit to the university (including an invitation to a university dinner) is also included in the award.

The following titles can be borrowed from the school library, and I have listed their Accelerated Reader book levels.
I have also included an update regarding the ‘The Big Jubilee Read’, with the link to the seventy novels that have made the final reading challenge.
