GB class Superhero Project
GB class visited our local Haberdashery shop, Bodkins, on Thursday 7th September. They met with the owner, Sandie, who presented them with two beautifully hand crafted Superheroes; Superman and Wonder Woman. As part of the Thundersley Art Trail, Bodkins have invited GB to participate in their window display with the Super Heroes theme. Pupils will be working closely with the shop over the next few weeks to complete this project. More to follow..........

End of Term Summer Assembly
Due to the overwhelming number of people attending this year ,we decided to hold our end of term assembly outdoors. We were extremely lucky with the weather as the sun shone down on us for the day . Parents/carers and family members came to school to see many pupils receive various trophies and awards. They were also entertained by lots of singing and also by some pupils who were brave enough to sing some solos! We also said a sad goodbye to Mrs Adcock who was leaving us after many years to enjoy her retirement.
The whole school celebrated 'shine week' on the week beginning 10 July 2017. Our theme this year was 'Amazing Animals' and pupils had the opportunity to learn some fabulous facts about many animals from around the world. We had lots of activities ranging from animal tessellations to baking 'Tiger' cake. A fun week was had by all as you can see from the photographs.
On Tuesday 11th July the whole school celebrated a cultural day learning all about the country Australia. Lots of fun activities took place including Aboriginal Art, making Lamington cake (A Lamington is an Australian cake, made from squares of sponge cake coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in desiccated coconut), playing cricket and learning generally about Australian culture.
Jack Petchey Award
Jack Petchey Award Winners - Summer 2017
The two winners for the Summer Term were announced recently at our end of term Summer assembly.
The first winner was Tony who is in Year 11. Tony was nominated to receive the award by both staff and pupils. He is extremely well liked and staff are always impressed with the amount of time he gives up to help around the school and in his lessons. He has also just completed his GCSE exams and has spent time over the last year being very determined and working extremely hard on them.
The second winner was Sophie in Middle school. She was nominated for her positivity and hard work in all of her lessons. Sophie always goes out of her way to help other pupils in her class who are struggling and she is a loyal friend to many.
A huge well done to both of these pupils who will now be deciding how to spend their £250 winnings around the school.
