Well done to Year 11 for making it to the end of the year and a gruelling examination season.  The year group were all smiles and looking amazing at their prom last week as they celebrated together on a glorious summer evening at Aintree.  We look forward to seeing you all again  in August to celebrate your results. Have a great summer, relax and have fun!

Year 10 Code-Breakers

posted by Lucy Forster July 6, 2019 0 comments

On Thursday 23 June 2019, 23 Computer Scientists travelled to Bletchley Park, ‘the Home of the Code-breakers’, to see how computers were first used to create and crack the codes used during the war. Students learned about the history behind the famous British Intelligence compound and learned about all of the important people who worked behind the scenes.  Following in the footsteps of Alan Turing, the class were given the chance to use an original Enigma machine to encode and decode messages and learn more about how important computers were in speeding up the process of reading the enemy messages.  Students and teachers all had a great time and everyone involved was impressed by how mature and enthusiastic the members of our school were throughout the entire trip. We are already looking forward to going again next year!

Cakes for good

posted by Lucy Forster July 5, 2019 0 comments

Year 10 student, Rachel, coordinated a fundraising cake sale to support The Big Tiny Steps Appeal and CDH UK.  The Big Tiny Steps Appeal supports Liverpool Women’s Neonatal Unit to continue to provide world class care to sick babies and their families, and CDH UK helps support families affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and funds research to improve treatment.  These charities are very special to Rachel and her family who have been involved with them through their own family experiences and wanted to help give back.  The incredible support of the school community helped them raise £213 through their cake sale! Thank you, as always, to everyone for their support.
