Solar Panels Installed! - posted 18th June

Over the May half term break the school installed solar panels to large sections of its roofs. This is a very exciting development as the school continues to look at ways to operate even more cost-effectively, counter climate change and improve its carbon footprint. The panels supplied through the WSCC Solar Power for Schools Programme is part of a £5 million government investment to help West Sussex schools reduce their energy costs and impact on the environment. The panels should save the school nearly £300,000 over the twenty-five-year life of the project.

An Action Packed Weekend in Paris - posted 12th June

Year 8, 9 and 10 pupils studying French have just returned from an action packed weekend in Paris (7-9th June). The trip started at midnight on Thursday and we were in Disney by lunchtime on Friday! Most pupils stayed in the park for the light show at 11pm, before heading back to the hotel for some much needed sleep. It was an early start the next morning; Saturday involved a quick stop at a supermarket to buy lunch, climbing the 270 steps of the Arc de Triomphe, a visit to Fragonard Perfume museum, a boat trip on the Seine, a visit to the Tour Montparnasse and a stop at a hypermarket on the way home! On Sunday, we visited the Musée D’Orsay and ate lunch by the Trocadero, with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop. Thank you to the pupils for making the weekend a success and a big thank you to Mrs Williams, Mr Eames, Miss Woods and Miss Dickson for coming on the trip.

We hope you enjoy our penultimate newsletter of the year – yes, the academic year is almost over! We have been reflecting in school on what it means to live ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10), and I think that the newsletter shows how fulfilling life can be if you grasp all of the opportunities that you are given. Our challenge for students during this last half term is to try something new, so please encourage your child to look at the activities on offer at school and join in!
