MFL Challenge!

Over the Christmas holidays ‘Talented’ MFL students from Key Stage 3 were challenged to complete a variety of tasks, including:

  • Watch a film in a foreign language
  • Read an article on a website in a foreign language
  • Try a Christmas custom from a foreign country

The responses were very impressive and varied. The MFL department chose 3 winners, who were awarded a certificate and a prize : John (year 9), Daisy (year 8) and Sophie (year 7).

All other students who took part were also awarded a certificate and a small prize during a celebration event with Mrs Mitchell.

Well done to Mrs Farrell and the MFL team too…

Student Leadership & Voice Opportunity

An external group are holding an interesting lecture and discussion session this Saturday (January 23rd) from 12:00 in the Baptist Church on Chandos Street – opposite Argos.

Some of our students are actively involved in the UN association – engaging in debates and working proactively to support local and wider communities.

Aiming to be balanced and respectful of different views and to provide a forum for those with a shared interest in current affairs and proactivity, the organisation invites students (or others) who are interested to attend.
