Today we welcomed a visitor from the National Citizen Service. 50 of our students have signed up for the NCS project this summer and will spend 4 weeks completing outdoor pursuits, staying at a university campus, developing life skills and delivering a community project. The photo shows Sam from NCS presenting a t.shirt to Roshawna Rock in year 13 who graduated from the programme in 2015.
Thanks for coming to see us Sam, I’m sure you’ll all agree, a great opportunity for our students! ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday we took a trip to the wonderful ‘Mont St Michel’ which is the 3rd biggest tourist attraction in France. The weather was fabulous and it looked even more magnificent in the sunshine.
All the pupils were split into 3 groups for most of the activities over the course of the week. This afternoon 1 group did ‘la fabrication de pain’ (bread making) whilst the other 2 groups took part in the assault course and had a good giggle in the mud.
Last night the pupils were lucky enough to try the French speciality of ‘les escargots’ – they were keen to try and I think nearly everyone had a snail. Brodie had about 10 and was beaming from ear to ear.
After dinner the evening activity was a small group event where the pupils had to work out certain tricks with ropes around their wrists or how to balance nails on 3 knives propped up by plastic cups. They worked really well together and it was a brilliant way of spending the last night together.
Today the students will leave the chateau at 11am, to catch the ferry mid-afternoon and will travel from Portsmouth after 9pm and aim to be back after midnight. Pupils will ring from the coach when we’re half an hour from home.
If anyone who went to France accidentally picked up a black DS with Pokémon moon in it on Saturday am - please let me know - Elliot left his on the coach! Coach driver checking in the morning. Thank you
Our students are all having a fabulous time in France, trying out new experiences and loving the French lifestyle. Some of them are pretty fearless! ... See MoreSee Less
