This week we have very kindly had some hearts donated by W H Munton and Son - Mill Farm & Butches Shop for our Year 8 CSI project. The hearts have been used by our teachers to demonstrate dissection to students.

We are grateful to the farm who has also offered to continue to support the school going forward by providing other items for dissection for all years including for our Post 16 students.

A reminder that due to the cooler temperatures forecast this week, blazers are again compulsory as per our school uniform policy. This advice will be reviewed on a weekly basis until the end of term.

On June 20th our Year 10 Art students were invited to a clay workshop afterschool. Their task for the session was to make a clay eye which will be painted using acrylics to create a realistic eye with a reflective surface in the eye ball. This can then be added to their Reflections coursework, which they are completing at the present time.

Well done to all those who attended, your work looks great so far!
