One of our Prep students Matthew, has just completed a 14 show run of Oliver! at China Hall in Spode by Stage Productions where he played Nipper in Fagin’s gang and was also a Workhouse Child and Book Seller’s Boy. He has had a marvellous experience performing to audiences of up to 400 people each show. He had a singing solo and played an important role as the comic value in Fagin’s Gang, pulling out Fagin’s underwear, flossing and being dragged off stage by his collar amongst other things, much to the enjoyment of the audiences.

On Wednesday 5th June our Year 10 History students visited Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. As part of their History Around Us module, the students have to visit a historical site and examine its physical remains. They then use this knowledge to form an enquiry in their exam. We were lucky enough to enjoy a sunny day at Kenilworth Castle, exploring the ruins of this spectacular site.

The students created a movie on their experience – explaining who the key individuals associated with Kenilworth were and why they are so important to its development.


For the start of their new topic ‘The world around me', Pre-school have been learning all about different habitats and the animals that live there. They enjoyed a discussion about the different features the animals had to survive in the different places.

A group of children walked to Morrisons and visited the fishmongers. They spoke to a lovely man about all of the fish that he was selling and brought back to school some sardines for their friends to have a look at.
