These are students who have made an excellent contribution to their tutor group this past term and have consistently got it right! A big well done to them!

We have enjoyed the Fun Fix Friday competitions and I am always so grateful for those who volunteer to take part in these. Our lead in these competitions have taken a knock and we have placed third or fourth this term in these so something to work on for next term! However we have had excellent sporting successes with our Y11-13 boys winning the house basketball . A great effort - well done!

Our biggest success though however, was our charity week which has just finished. Our charity team, led by our house leaders have done a fantastic job organising this.

There has been cake sales every day, a staff pledge raffle, a soak the staff event and secret valentine biscuits sold! We have raised almost £350 for the Zakhele fund. Thank you to all staff and students who supported us in this! We are very grateful!

Dan Powell who is on the house council has been hard at work creating the logo for the house. He has done a fantastic job at including our motto, colour and house animal. And here it is!


Priscilla Lumoso and Ellie Griffin, our house leaders, have taken more responsibility in the house and have been spending more time with the rest of the house. They are excellent role models and are always willing to help. They have worked exceptionally hard this term for the success of the house and I am very thankful for you both!!

I hope all students have a restful break, ready for the new term ahead!
