PSA Auction 2017
The Secondary School/6th Form is currently experiencing problems with the telephone lines.
On the 6th December 2017, 12 A- level business students were lucky enough to visit Interserve PLC in Twyford. Interserve PLC is a services company specialising in construction work, however they also have many other roles such as, catering, security, cleaning, and even prison transport. Additionally they have completed many exciting projects for example, fitting out the world trade centre in Dubai as well as The Shard and also even framework for many abstract buildings. As well as the big projects they also have contracts with everyday business as they were contracted to deliver retail cleaning services to 360 Boots stores as well as providing cleaning services to Sainsbury’s.
The 1st of December was an exciting day for a group of Year 8 girls. We all went to Microsoft, Reading, to compete in a competition called DigiGirlz, an annual competition held for schools in the UK (there were teams from Birmingham!) to try and encourage more girls to go into Computer Science and Programming.
We are currently experiencing some problems with our phone lines and have made arrangements for engineers from BT to come out and fix the problem. At present we are able to receive incoming calls but are unable to make any outgoing calls.
We do hope to have the situation resolved as soon as possible and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Thank you for your support

The OfSTED judgements are confidential until the report is published, which is expected to be early January.
Each and every member of staff were, as always, amazing during the inspection. The children’s behaviour, and especially their appetite for learning, was excellent.
Many thanks for your continuing support.

The Piggott School and Charvil Piggott Primary School
Every Child, Every Lesson, Every Day.
Year 13 leavers June 2017
An incredibly long flight and a 7 hour time difference did not phase the nineteen Piggott students who were all set for a new adventure! They arrived in Chengdu to a warm welcome from the staff of Luzhou High School.
After a short rest, the activities began. From visiting forests, temples and farms, to attending calligraphy and Chinese taiji classes, the visit was action packed from beginning to end. In addition to the wide variety of activities that took place at Luzhou High School, and the exciting day trip experiences, the Piggott staff and students enjoyed spending time with some of the families from the school.
The group even managed to squeeze in a visit to the Giant Panda Research Base, in Chengdu, before their return flight!
Students and staff really made the most of this wonderful opportunity and they truly experienced, at first hand, Chinese culture, education and lifestyle. Many memories were created and they will no doubt be treasured for years to come.
Everyone is looking forward to the return visit from the Chinese students and staff next summer.
Until then, students can enjoy finding out more about the adventure during one of Mr Crawley’s upcoming assemblies!
