Taekwondo Success

Congratulations to Year 8 students Belle and Eve who both competed in the ITF British Championships at the weekend in Scotland.  Belle achieved two gold medals and a silver and Eve achieved two bronze medals at the event.  Eve was also successful at the ITF English Championship in London where she achieved both a gold and silver in special technique and patterns.  A superb set of results for both girls. Well done!

Year 7 Get Creative in Cross-Curricular Project

This term, a small group of Year 7 students have been working on a cross-curricular project between the Technology and Media Studies departments; their task was to create a digital media marketing campaign promoting careers in STEM!

One team’s eye-catching poster designs.

This could promote STEM in school or STEM careers and also give Year 7 the opportunity to take part in some practical Media Studies lessons and learn about the world of media marketing.

In an ‘Apprentice’-style task over twelve lessons, they went head-to-head as rival teams and designed team logos, posters and campaign videos, as well as learning about careers in STEM and the importance of brand identity.

The teams present their work at the end of the project.

Another intrepid group will now take on the task over the coming weeks. For a more in-depth look at what they have been getting up to, CLICK HERE to visit the dedicated project page on our website.

Well done to everyone who worked so hard!
