Well done to all the students involved in the Music Show, ‘Remix’ which took place last Wednesday. The audience feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we are tremendously proud of the hard work and efforts of all our students who took part. If parents are interested in obtaining photos or videos of the show, they should contact Ms Williams or Mr Lancaster in the first instance.
Our cake sale to raise funds for our forthcoming Dance Show ‘Back2Back’ proved to be an enormous success last Friday. The sale took place in the foyer of the Dance Studio and all the cakes were made by Year 10 Dance students and a very talented Year 7 student. The cakes proved both visually impressive and delicious and they were sold out in under ten minutes! Well done to everyone who came along or helped out and many, many thanks to our three cake makers!

In Humanities, Year 10 RE students have been investigating the role of democratic and electoral processes in the UK as part of their GCSE Rights and Responsibilities topic. Students in 10F1 have been analysing different arguments for staying in and leaving the European Union. Further to their investigations of the arguments, they were able to give detailed arguments for how they would vote in the EU referendum, and which of these arguments. As a result of this, and further study students have been able to argue the importance of the UK as a democracy and the responsibility to vote that comes with this.
