Yr10 Mock Interview days

This week all Y10 students were offered the opportunity of a mock interview with a member of the local business community. The two mock interview days were very successful, and our students have gained valuable experience of the interview process. I am sure this experience will support all the students with their interviews for 6th form, college, apprenticeship, and jobs next year.

I would also like to thank all the business volunteers who helped support this careers event.

Year 10 Netball

A huge congratulations to the year 10 netball team for making it through to the finals for the second year running.

Playing Kings High School is always a challenge, the girls know they have to perform at their very best and have confidence that they can win. This belief grew with each quarter as the girls got stronger and stronger. Unfortunately, the gap was to big and the final result was 30 goals to 20. As always, I am incredibly proud of them all.

Well done to Sandra, Chloe, Tyra, Izzy, Keri, Sofia, Lily, Darcie, Esmee and Grace

Webb Ellis information

Any student not going on the trip should go to the Gym am registration.

If you are going on the trip you need to be in the hall at 8.45am ,no later than 8.50 am when the assembly will start. If you have a bus that is late, it is worth getting in earlier if you can. 

Important information about the day will be delivered in the assembly. The quicker we get through this the quicker we leave so be prompt.

Food   – food is expensive at Alton Towers. It may well be worth bringing a packed lunch to eat there. You may bring money at your own risk. 

Clothes – it is non uniform, but the same rules apply to a trip as if you were partaking in a non-uniform day at school. 

Return to school – please have your phone with you to inform parents of estimated time of arrival. This can vary based upon traffic. Parents should not park in the bus bay. We hope to be back from 6.15pm – 6.30pm but again this is dependent upon you being on time and the journey back.

Year 10 Football

 Southam vs Studley

The year 10 football team took a long trip on a rainy evening to Studley as they looked to stretch their winning streak to 3 games in the league. Southam started well with creative play in the final 3rd but could not find the final touch on the slippery surface early in the first half. Goals from Liam, Fin and Jack took it to 3-0 in the second half until Tobias finished a free-flowing Southam move with a brilliant turn and finish to make it 4-0. A well finished penalty by Studley late on as the game finished 4-1. Some strong performances across the pitch and everyone fought hard for the win with a big thank you to Josh and Fin who stepped in last minute to make the fixture possible.

The year 10s go again next week to make it 4 in a row.
