Halloween at school!

As All Hallows Eve approaches, our fantastic Parents Association have decorated the hallways with creepy cobwebs, black spiders and jack-o’-lanterns to welcome our pupils in the scariest (and cutest) costumes to celebrate Halloween and the start of half term. Whilst the ghouls, vampires and unicorns roamed the schools’ corridors, a coven of witchy parents delivered trick or treats to each classroom on the spooky occasion.

Happy Halloween and enjoy your holiday!

Year 8s take a trip to Burnham Beeches

On October 10th, our Year 8 pupils visited Burnham Beeches Wood in Buckinghamshire as part of their study of geology in science. They explored the woodlands and observed geological soil layering, ancient sites of clay mining for bricks, quagmires and areas where sinkholes exist!

In addition, pupils learned about pollarding trees and how the woods are being managed and preserved for future generations. They took soil samples at different locations around the trail and these will be analysed back in school for their pH, texture, and profile. This information will then be related to the dominant trees found growing in each sampled area.

A challenging and exciting day rooted in fun!
