Ice Cream Sale (the results)

The ice -cream sale last week raised a magnificent £102.91 for charity.  Many thanks to all the student leaders who helped, and the staff (including Signor Whippy aka Mr Lowe). The student leaders have voted for the money raised to go to Cancer Research UK.

Once again thanks to all staff and students, especially within Food Tech for all their help.

Year 7 College Day

On Friday 4th September Year 7 were inducted into the WCA College system, taking part in a number of activities throughout the day. Students were able to get to know their fellow tutees and College peers whilst completing team building games, including a Treasure Hunt and Carnival Games.

The activities concluded with a Mini Olympics, where students were able to support their Colleges in several track events. 

It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm across the year group as students got to know one another and began to build relationships as a College. Of course there was a competitive element to the day, with points being awarded for each activity.

The overall winning College was Merica!

Congratulations to all Year 7 students who took part!
