    I am dedicating this blog to our production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which took place last week. Over 40 pupils were involved. The play took place outside in a number of locations around the school grounds.

    It was fantastic to see the children performing so confidently in front of a large audience. An amazing time was had by all.

      Welcome back to the final half term of the year.


      Our year 11’s now only have 3 weeks left and are looking forward to PGL and the Prom over the next couple of weeks.


      Year 8 had a wonderful time on their residential just before half term.  The weather was great and pupils had the opportunity to try lots of new activities.

      The Primary department have also been very busy out and about on trips and visits.  A group of pupils spent the day out on the water where they had the opportunity to learn about sailing and some pupils had the opportunity to steer boats. All had a great time.


      Yesterday evening we had the opportunity to celebrate the Art project some of our pupils have been involved in at Pallant House Gallery. This was a joint project with Parklands School and Central School. The quality and presentation of the work was excellent. Well done to Emilia, Jimmy, Sky, Ares, Sophie and Kieran. The exhibition will be on display until July.

      A reminder that next week we have our school production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Wednesday starting at 6.30 pm.  Refreshments will be served from 5.45pm so it is advisable to get here early in order to find suitable parking because there will be minimal parking on the site, however a drop off point will be available at all times.

        I can hardly believe how quickly this half term is going.


        We have been very busy over that last couple of weeks.


        The annual duck race took place on 7th May. Thanks to all that supported.


        Last week we had fun Sports Day. Thankfully the weather was kind. It was good to see so many parents/carers come and support. Pupils had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities supported by pupils in Key Stage 4. All performed brilliantly. The winning team were Chestnut- Well Done. Thankyou also to our parents and friends who provided refreshments and raised over £300.

        The last week of this half term will no doubt go very quickly. Year 8 are off on residential next week to Mill Rythe in Hampshire. Fingers crossed the sun continues to shine and they have a great time.


        I hope everyone has a lovely half term when it arrives. My next blog will be on Friday 8th June.
