In our latest sports news…congratulations to the Y11 boys football team who beat King Ecgberts 5-1 in a league fixture. Very sporting of us to loan the visiting team some players (who turned up with 9 men!) A very solid team performance with every man playing their part. Sina putting in a man of the match performance with a host of high quality goals from all areas of the pitch! The ‘loanees’ weren’t without a solid performance either with Nana being man of the match for their side also – well done boys, you did us proud!

Another win…Y10 boys football team beat Newfield 1-0 with a great goal from Nana – they’re now in the Sheffield Cup Semi Final – well done guys!

HeppSY+ Mobile Classroom

Woman in Black London Visit

Mr Grifflow, Mrs Lees and Miss Meyrick had the pleasure of taking 20 GCSE Drama students to London at the weekend to see Susan Hill’s ‘Woman in Black’ 
at the Fortune Theatre.

We got the coach down on Saturday morning and then set about the walk to our hostel. The rather epic walk took us past some of London’s most famous sights – Big Ben (whose face was visible behind some scaffolding), the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.

We had time to get in a quick bit of shopping before heading over to the theatre for the matinee performance.
The two-hander dynamic worked very well and both actors (Terence Wilton and James Byng) gave very good performances. The stage was very well used and both lighting and special effects worked to create an immersive atmosphere.

On Saturday evening we headed into Chinatown and treated ourselves to a traditional Chinese feast – not a bad dish among them! The bells of St. Paul’s may have made the night a bit noisier than expected but everyone woke up on Sunday having had at least some sleep. After breakfast, we made our way back to the coach station and headed home. What a weekend!
