Congratulations and thank you to Mrs White and the whole school community for their excellent efforts in this year's Poppy Appeal. The final amount raised was £443.72, over four times last year's total. The school gathered outside of the Discovery Centre at 11am on the morning of the 11th November to remember those who had fallen, bringing to a close a number of commemorative events that have taken place in this, the 100th anniversary year of the beginning of WWI.
The dates and topics for this year's Spotlight Seminars have now been confirmed. The focus will be Language Processing, looking at expressive and receptive language difficulties, and how to successfully support students within - and outside of - the classroom. The sessions are open to all and free of charge as part of a charity initiative. Please click on the following link for more information:

Congratulations to former student Joseph Murrel who has been awarded a prestigious Arkwright Engineering Scholarship that identifies him as one of the country’s future leaders in engineering and technical design.

Joseph had to successfully complete a rigorous selection process consisting of a detailed application form, a two-hour aptitude exam and an interview hosted at a top engineering university. A fantastic achievement and the start of a great future.
