Leavers v Staff Football

A closely fought match ended in a 2-2 draw, so the staff retain the coveted Matthew Mayer cup for another year. This was also the last match for footballing legend Mr Murtagh. How will we cope?

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Last night a three-night run of an 80s inspired take on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream went out with a bang – literally – with confetti cannons and the YMCA bringing an end to three months of hard work by a talented cast of Year 10 – U6. A huge thank you to everybody who helped to put on the production and to everybody who came to watch!

Founders' Day

On the morning of Wednesday 19 October 2016, we held our annual Founders' Day celebrations. The day started with Founders' Day Cookies provided to all pupils and staff, followed by the Founders' Day Service held at St George's Church. During the Service, our Head Boy and Head Girl presented flowers to commemorate our founding benefactors. Many of our former pupils will remember the traditional boaters; these are worn every Founders' Day by our prefects. The day concluded with lunch at the School - we were delighted to welcome former pupils, staff, governors and other guests joining us for the meal.

Year 7 spent the day visiting the Regional Big Bang Science and Technology Fair at the Derby Roundhouse. There was a range of different exhibits from local and national engineering companies. The pupils also attended a lecture on the future of our Railway Industry from recent Graduate Engineers.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

During this past week over 60 pupils from Years 7-9 put on three brilliant performances of C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, rounding off an impressive year for drama. As always, there were a number of breathtaking moments, from the first entrance of the almost ten-foot high wardrobe doors, to the intricately choreographed stone table and battle scenes. Thanks to the crew for their patience and hard work, as well as Mrs Parkinson and all the pupils who took time out of their busy schedules to design and create the amazing masks of Maugrim and the other wolves. Finally, thanks must go to the amazing cast, who were a pleasure to work with and impressed everybody who saw the show.
