Barcelona 2020 - posted 21st Feb

41 Y10 GCSE Spanish pupils and 5 staff visited the amazing city of Barcelona for the weekend.

We had a brilliant time visiting all the famous monuments and experiencing Spanish culture. We visited the monumental gardens of Parc Guell and were awe inspired by the beauty of the Sagrada Familia cathedral, both designed by Antonio Gaudi. We explored the marina, Las Ramblas and La Boquería market and got to practise some Spanish, but the icing on the cake for many was the tour of Camp Nou, the home of Barcelona FC. It was an incredible experience and we’re looking forward to going again next year!

A sporting update - posted 3rd Feb

A sporting roundup after a very busy few weeks in the PE Dept!

Our Y7, Y8 and Y9 boys football teams have all played Liverpool College over the past three week weeks. Y7 played a very strong team and lost convincingly, Y8 should have won however with players missing and juggling the pack to give everyone a chance we lost 2-0. Last night the Y9 team played and won 2-0. The boys put in a huge amount of effort as we had no subs with 4 cry offs a whilst Liverpool College had 17 boys so kept bringing on fresh legs. Well done to all the boys concerned.

  • We believe parents are their children's first and most important educators.
  • We are committed to developing a strong relationship between parents and school. 
  • We also encourage children to develop 'growth mind-sets', so children believe that ability and success are not pre-determined, but due to learning.
