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.
Y10 in the Brecon Beacons
Reece Healy-Elliman: On Wednesday 14th of May, 51 year 10 students did the unthinkable, the unimaginable, we all spent three days without technology in the Welsh countryside. No I-pads, no I-pods, no Wi-Fi, nothing. Yet we did much in those three days, and enjoyed it immensely, or at least as soon as we settled in to the new environment.
The coach journey there took 4 hours, and when we got there it was straight to our Cabins to unpack, and in 20 minutes we were doing our first activities. One activity was canoeing, and boy did one get wet on their odysseys – instructors and children alike. And if that wasn’t enough sea-voyaging, some of us also did some raft-building, battling the lake’s mighty elements and getting overturned by other trams along the way (one of the major saboteurs of our boats was none other than the infamous Mr Galvan, no one was safe from his attack – no-one).
Other activities involved sitting around a camp-fire – a plan that literally went up in flames – zip-wiring and walking blind-folded through a forest! I think it’s safe to say, even with a little accident with a window, everyone had a jolly good time!
