On Monday 19th June GCSE Physical Education pupils took part in a Gifted and Talented Workshop run by Sky Sports and the Youth Sport Trust. The workshop was led by Olympic Athlete Jeanette Kwakye who came 6th in the 2008 Olympic 100m FINAL. She shared her own inspiring story and left the girls enthused with hope of their own success in future sporting events as well as how to succeed in everyday life events.

Sicily Trip 2014
Over the February half-term, during the carnival period, twenty GSCE and A-Level students studying Italian visited the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily. Pupils stayed in the bustling historic city of Catania at the foot of Mount Etna, which caused much excitement as it could be seen erupting throughout the course of the week.
Year 11 and 13 Geography Trip 2014
During the February half term the Geography department took 21, Year 11 and 13 students to the magnificent country of Iceland. 'The land of fire and ice'. Whilst we thankfully didn't see any fire, though we certainly saw lots of ice!
We spent 6 days travelling along the south coast of Iceland, starting our adventure in Reykjavik and travelling all the way to the East of the island to the gorgeous glacial lagoon at Jökulsárlón. We saw many different landscapes from stunning waterfalls, to breathtaking glaciers, geysers and many others places.
The week was jam packed with different activities, so there was never a dull day. We did however, find time to make a relaxing stop at the world famous Blue Lagoon, just around the corner from Reykjavik.
Overall, it was a great trip had by all. One which I hope to repeat next year!
YEAR 13 EDUCATIONAL VISIT TO NEW YORK (USA)
Nineteen Year 13 students recently visited New York during half-term to experience the many sights and sounds of the ‘Big Apple’. The group were able to visit many of the iconic land marks and attractions situated in and around Manhattan. Despite the cold weather, snow and ice everyone was in good form and even found time to do some shopping. All students found the trip memorable and a place they would go back to in the near future.
The RE Department have been awarded the 2013 Michael Edwards Award for Outstanding RE provision in Havering. This award was presented by representatives from the Havering SACRE for the department's work with social media, online resourcing and online student discussion. It is named in memory of one of the Borough's senior inspectors who helped raise the profile of RE. Many students are now using Edmodo to help with their learning and some have contributed to the following blogs:
Following the recent Ofsted Inspection, I am sure you will all join me in congratulating the Head Teacher, Senior Leadership Team, all Teaching and Support Staff along with Pupils in achieving ‘Outstanding’ for the third consecutive time. Well Done Everyone!
