The exhibition of Class 8 projects is always highly anticipated. It is the culmination of a year's worth of focused study by pupils on an area of individual interest.

The projects are diverse. Some reflect long-standing areas of interest, others offer a chance to develop a new skill or knowledge. 

This year they ranged from studying the physics of a magnetic levitation train to creating beautiful models of the Platonic solids.

To see all the projects visit: Gallery of Class 8 Projects

One of the highlights of the school year is the Michaelmas Meal. This is a time for all pupils and staff to share food together. It's a cross-school event, with pupils from every class contributing to the preparations; rolls are baked, napkins folded, flowers arranged and tables laid.

Computers Donated to the Turing Trust

We were delighted to donate a number of old computers to the Alan Turing Trust today.
The Trust, which was established in memory of the mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing, works in Africa to support students become more employable by teaching them IT and vocational skills. The computers will be refurbished and then placed in schools in Malawi.
You can find out more about the work of the Trust.
