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 special mention must go to four of our Year 8 students who achieved their Ruby Award for gaining 125 House points each!
Congratulations to Tabitha, Madeline, Caitlyn, and Sophie.

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.
