Following last year's Lepra event, Key Stage 3 pupils took part again in a Bollywood-themed fitness workout to raise money and aware of leprosy. This year we raised over £670, helping to cure 31 people of leprosy. An amazing achievement! Some pupils raised in excess of £25 and received a little gift from Lepra.

When you discover that students have designed and made something outside school and want to share it with you, most teachers will use this as an opportunity to show their praise and acknowledge effort.

I was particularly impressed when presented with a prototype for a trainer which would have commercial appeal. Using a range of materials and some components, the prototype was created using a mould. I was able to use this as an excellent resource to showcase a successful outcome, as well as relate this to their Dyson Design Box project in Year 6. From their first showcase, I was then presented by another two designs. The plan for these gentlemen is develop more concepts. Who knows, they may even set up their own company!

We are delighted to announce that we have had 28 certificate winners in this year's UK Mathematics Challenge.

A huge well done to everyone in Year 8 who took part! Congratulations to Martin and Luke who win 'Best in School'.
