In order to promote National School Sports Week, all PE lessons were modified to encourage new and different sports including some Paralympic sports. Students participated in wheelchair basketball, goal ball, curling, bottia, kabbadi, and handball.


Year 9 students eagerly participated in an exciting Industry Day. The annual event is designed for students to engage in various activities, learning from an expert in their profession and thereby providing the students with a greater understanding of the world of work. Workshops included a florist, a chef, police forensics, engineers, fashion and wallpaper design to name but a few.

A group of students led by our new Social Action Coordinator, Jewish Care and GIFT, went to visit an old aged home in order to be more involved with the old people in the Jewish community. They were able to bond in a number of different ways one of which was making cheesecakes for the upcoming chag of Shavuot.


In February, Jewish Care visited the Year 7 assembly to tell students about the new B’nei Mitzvah programme they set up in partnership with our school. Year 7 student, Leah, decided to participate in the recent 10K walk. The highlights for her were realising that she could walk 10K, knowing that she has raised funds for Jewish Care, seeing the amazing facilities that her funds would help to support and, best of all, meeting the incredible people who use these amazing facilities.
