Secondary School Entrance Changes
From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.
All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.
The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building.
Sixth Form Trip to Bloomberg
Mr Whitlock: On Friday 6th December Mr Whitlock took a group of 6th Formers studying Economics and Business to Bloomberg L.P headquarters in London to experience a 'speed networking' event. This gave them the opportunity to talk to five different employees over the course of an hour about what it is like to work in a large global industry.
Bloomberg L.P provides financial software tools such as an analytics and equity trading platform, data services and news to financial companies. It also owns Bloomberg News and a global television network alongside a radio station, various websites and two well-known magazines (Bloomberg Businessweek and Bloomberg Markets).
After the students made some excellent connections and exhausted their questions they finished the event by raiding the amazing free cafeteria which had everything you could ever imagine to eat from popcorn to crisps to jelly beans to fruit to, well, anything! The employees certainly get it good working for a company like Bloomberg.
