Year 12 Geography visit to Dorset

The students enjoyed a day at Swanage Beach investigating the impact of coastal defences, followed by as a visit to Corfe Castle to see if the media image truly reflected the perceptions of locals. All Geography students are required to carry out two days fieldwork before taking their AS exams and they use this experience to prepare them for both their public exams in the summer and to get ideas for the independent investigation carried out in the summer term.

Exploring Science

Thank you to the Science Museum for their engaging experiments today. Year 7 enjoyed seeing instant ice cream being made with liquid nitrogen, whilst Years 8 and 9 were captivated by the world of materials experiments.

Year 11 enjoy Poetry Live

Readings from several poets brought the work alive and questions from the students allowed the poets to give an insight into their works. Highlights included the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, Daljit Nagra and the ever-popular John Agard who finished the day with a fantastic recital of 'Checking Out Me History'.
