On Friday 16th March children in the prep school enjoyed practical experiments and activities as part of our Science Day.
Yesterday the Careers Bus, sponsored by the Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group, arrived in school to provide advice on post -16 options.
Today In assembly P5 students talked to other pupils in the Prep school about International Women's Day.
We are pleased to announce that the winners of our ‘World Book Day’ challenge, to match the book to the member of staff, are: Ava Stacey (Y10) and Emily Frodsham (Y10).
Our ‘World Book Day’ theme this year is ‘Fairy-tales and Theories’!
The Preparatory school could not wait to be the most charming Cinderella’s or the most odious ogres today! Pupils from P1 to P6 have been busy with the challenge of creating wondrously new Fairy-tale openings, whist still controlling those ‘articles’, ‘adverbs’ and maybe even ‘semi-colons’!

Muddy quagmires, swollen streams and snow showers, Bedstone bared it's teeth again this year for our runners competing in the highly competitive ISA Midlands Senior and Junior Cross Country Championships in Bucknell, Shropshire.
It is an achievement in itself to complete the tough course around Bedstone, particularly for the younger runners.The sense of satisfaction in completing it is felt by all. The hot chocolate and cookie at the end a welcome relief from the conditions.
