  • Go and Do Likewise in Action - Earthquake Appeal

    Published 13/03/23

    Well done to the School Council for organising the non-uniform day and two bake sales! Thank you so much to everyone for their generosity to raise money for DEC Turkey-Syria earthquake appeal. In total we raised an amazing £1865.84. This is a superb effort, especially with the cost of living crisis. This money will make such a difference to those in need of vital supplies.

    I was so impressed with the superb quality of the cakes that came in, so thank you again. I’d also like to thank the school council members for their brilliant help in selling and promoting the baked goods. We had so many donations in that we decided to run the bake sale over 2 days.

    Year 8 into 9 Options is one of the most exciting times in your education as it gives you your first real opportunity to select some of the subjects that you will study for the next three years.

  • CIRDIC visit

    Published 05/01/23

    On Monday 12th of December we made our annual trip to CIRDIC, the homeless drop-in centre in Reading.

    We took with us 6 students, bags full of socks and pants (kindly donated by our school community), sweets, homemade Christmas cards and a very big Christmas tree!

    It was lovely to see how happy everyone was for a bit of Christmas cheer. The students spent some time seeing how the centre worked and decorating the tree. The centre's Christmas meal was the next day so we got there just in time.

    Thank you so much to everyone who sent in a donation. With the cold days ahead, they are needed more than ever.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

    Miss Marris
