  • Super League Netball Visit

    Miss Rudge and Mr Williams took a group of 7 pupils (who go to our netball club each week) to a professional Super League netball game at the University of Worcester, between Severn Stars and Surrey Storm. At the end of the game, our pupils got to meet some of the Severn Stars players and get their autographs. All of our pupils were impeccably well-behaved and they enjoyed this trip. Hopefully they also picked up a few tricks and skills which they can use in their future netball games.

  • Meet the Lords

    It is not every day that you get to meet a real-life Lord… but that’s exactly what Years 3 and 5 got to do this afternoon. These year groups got to meet Lord Browne of Ladyton, who took time out of his busy schedule, to meet with us via Teams. Lord Browne was a solicitor before entering politics and he served in the cabinet under Tony Blair and then later Gordon Brown as secretary of Scotland and then defence and he is now a member of the House of Lords. They also asked him questions about his roles and his life and found out more about how democracy works in this country. Some of our questions included: What is your proudest achievement?
