Fundraising news from the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

We are looking to top up our funds this year as numbers have grown and we will need some new tents and rucksucks, as well as money for staff training. Our aim is to be able to supply all students on expedition with the necessary kit so that they do not have to go out and buy anything expensive. So watch out for future events, sponsored walks (no doubt with dogs!), sponsored swim on Christmas Day, and perhaps ... perhaps, a mass sleep out on the school fields - watch this space!

Cycling to and from school

The roads around school have been quite challenging in recent weeks and we are always concerned that our students get to and from school safely. We are proud of the numbers of students using bicycles to travel which is far higher than the national picture. We are working closely with local cycling charity Sustrans to further develop our scooter safety. The wearing of cycle helmets, in particular, is a real concern. Whilst it is not a legal requirement, the school does recommend that our students wear a helmet if cycling to and from school. Please stay safe and choose to wear a helmet, use reflectors and lights.
