On Sunday, the annual sponsored walk returned after a Covid enforced hiatus in 2020. It was absolutely wonderful that 53 students, parents and colleagues (not to mention a sizeable pack of dogs!) took part in the walk around Hazeley Heath near Hartley Wintney. The walkers were blessed by cold, but sunny conditions and mostly dry footpaths. The walk this year is raising much needed money for the local Air Ambulance service. A sincere thanks to everyone who took part.

Last week, the Diversity and Inclusion Ambassadors took part in workshops looking at The Theory of Enchantment - Building a Beloved Community, real life Inclusion and Diversity scenarios – ‘what would you do if you saw/heard...?’ and Action Planning - How to make our College more inclusive.
On Thursday 25 November, Onatti Productions presented the Spanish play ‘En el campamento’ to Year 8 students in the College Hall. It was great to have them back after a two-year break sharing laughter and lots of Spanish with the boys.
During November, Year 11 and the Sixth Form students benefited from one-to-one careers interviews with accredited advisers. There have been many positive outcomes from this programme including the students having a complete understanding of their profile and the range of options open to them; a knowledge of how to complete future applications correctly and the development of new ways of critical thinking to help the students with their studies. The exercise was also beneficial for the development of soft skills to be "workplace ready" in the future.
