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. 

THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: PHYSICS EDITION

You know what’s better than a go-karting trip? A free go-karting trip! In all my history of rewards trips, this one trumped them all and proved to be great fun or all of us who went, despite all the red and black flags we got.

The physics part of it was very educational(!) and proved to a lot of people that F=ma (Newton’s Law of Motion), as “F” was the resultant force of the electric motor and “m” was the mass of the entire thing.

This was demonstrated by Suhayb’s need to speed past people, whilst leaving Tariq in a trail of dust… 

The first race was more like bumper cars than Karting, but by race 4 we had mastered the course and were managing to complete sub 30 second laps!

Thank you to Mr Lawrence for organising such a fun trip to mark the end of A-Level exams!
