This week the A level Biologists have been completing part of their practical assessment. They have been studying the mammalian heart and need to relate the real-life structures seen during the dissection to the function of pumping blood around the body.

The quality of our students’ art work is always just incredible and a privilege to be able to see.  This is just a selection of the amazing work our students have produced.

Our Year 10 girls have been taking advantage of the lovely weather as our after school rounders club has started for the summer term.

The sixth form music performance students are delighted to be in The Platform performing now that the covid testing has finished. Here is their recent assessment performance of Champagne Supernova, Oasis. Although our performance students are disappointed to miss out on gigging, having such incredible facilities to perform in at school goes some way in making up for it!
