Year 11 Science Day
On Wednesday 19th June, Year 11 pupils were involved in a full day of “fun science”. Their challenge was to design and make kites in small teams, and they came up with some very imaginative designs. When it came to testing their creations in the afternoon, a severe lack of wind did not work in their favour, but they were determined not to be beaten, and took it upon themselves to run at full pelt across the school field! Some of the kites even managed to fly… for a few seconds at least!

Year 8 visit YHA Blaxhall!
From 12th to 14th June, Year 8 went on a residential trip to Suffolk to the Blaxhall Youth Hostel. They did many activities, including visiting the Felixstore museum at Landguard Fort; visiting Dunwich to see where the town has fallen in to the sea; Framlingham Castle where Nian claimed the castle for the French; and a tour of Ipswich’s gruesome sights – places of execution and graves of men eaten by cannibals! Everywhere we went they were commended on their manners and courtesy and how well behaved they were. A real joy to take. Well done, Year 8!
