This is an impressive achievement as they were competing against 12 schools (26 teams in total), from across the West Midlands. Thank you to Mr Summerhayes (Head of History) and Mr Thomas (Head of Aspirations), for giving our students the chance to experience and showcase their talents in the auspicious surroundings of the 'University Great Hall'. Not forgetting the History Department (who have taught them so well), and the students who were a credit to the school!

  • Harry Potter Day in the Library

    Published 07/02/20

    Our annual Harry Potter event took place in the library after school on Wednesday. 20 Harry Potter enthusiasts participated in activities such as bookmark making, a maze, different tri-wizard events, face-painting and an opportunity to have a picture taken with the world famous Tri-Wizard trophy. The library was very atmospheric with the Sorting hat, Goblet of Fire, wands, various posters and displays (all made by our Librarian, Mrs Hazlehurst). The children (and adults), definitely got into the spirit of things and had a thoroughly WIZARDING time! Thank you once again to Mrs Hazlehurst for organising and running the event.

    Published 23/10/19


    Last chance to come and see our fabulous, fun packed performance of 'Sister Act'-you won't be disappointed!!

    "I just want to reiterate the message from other staff over the past few days. I went to see the show last night (Thursday).

    I was simply bowled over by the production, the talent both acting and singing, supportive nature of each other and at times emotional roller coaster was simply outstanding.

    I know there were a lot of staff supporting Helen and Danny who should be very proud of what they have led and supported, with large parts of the production produced and choreographed by the students themselves. Please go and see it if you have the opportunity, as its the last night tonight. " Mr P Goodison-Head of PE
