Well done to Josh Davies, Year 7 who has been called up to the Welsh Squad for squash and is currently training in preparation for the 5 Nations Tournament. He will be competing against boys his age from France, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Thank you to all parents for your support on the Year 9 Parents’ evening. Please contact school if you require further guidance on the completion of options.
On Wednesday, March 1st we celebrated Dydd Gwyl Dewi with our annual whole school assembly. This was led by the Welsh department and Year 12 Welsh students, Tomos Edwards, Jack Davies and Shekeira Pritchard. There was also a splendid report by Emma Pryce and Samantha Short about the recent Year 12 trip to Cardiff. At breaktime staff enjoyed Welsh cakes, with donations for the cakes going to the Marie Curie Daffodil Appeal. Year 7 have also competed in the Dydd Gwyl Dewi homework competitions and there have been some fantastic entries, which were judged by the Welsh department.

We have had some wonderful musical performances in our whole school assemblies recently. Joshua Berdouk on piano, Lucy Nash, Rebecca Tresidder and Esther Rhodes Leader performing a clarinet trio and Molly Pitt singing ‘stand by me’ were all worthy of special mention. Well done also to all Year 11 students who completed their music practical GCSE examinations. Searson commented that all students performed to an incredibly high standard and he was very proud of them all.
Year 11 PE students also took part in their GCSE practical examinations this week. The external moderator visiting school spoke glowingly about our students.
