We held a mufti day today in support of Children in Need and raised a staggering £781.21 Students took part in the Penny Mile and by giving donations were able to play on the Xbox during tutor time and lunch. We also held a cake sale.

Visiting Artist - Charles Bezzina

Charles Bezzina visited school this week and spent time with our Year 9 Art students. Charles is an artist in residence in the arctic circle drawing and painting the landscape around the Ilulissat Fjord. He lives for weeks at a time with the Innuit communities. In recent months he has been documenting the effects of climate change around the ice fjords. We hope this will inspire the students both in their artwork and in their understanding of climate change and environmental issues .
