On Wednesday 25th March, Miss Mayhew and Mrs Brunning took a group of Year 11 GCSE French students to Essex University for the day. The aim of the day was to kick start their French revision and was hosted by three different teachers from three local schools. The students participated in a variety of lessons on topics ranging from town and environment, to holidays and school. All of the sessions were well received by our students and they took a lot from the day. Their behaviour and attitudes to learning should be congratulated; they were the stars of the day. A special mention should go to Jake Davids and Gareth Sanders-Crook who won an Easter Egg each at the end of the day. These were given to students that excelled throughout the day.
Alan Bennett’s hilarious and poignant play ‘The History Boys’ was brought to life for Sixth form students at the Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich on Tuesday evening. Studied as part of the A Level English Literature and Language course, ‘The History Boys’ production was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Students commented that seeing the play enabled them to better envisage the fluidity of Bennett’s time-shifting techniques as well as improve their understanding of the characters and adult themes.
It was a long evening but well worth the late return home. The production tours other UK towns for a few more weeks and each and every one of us would highly recommend a visit.
The extremely talented group of A*spire students showcased their talents to Senior staff, Governors, Parents and Heads of Community in an astounding display of maturity. The students have been working relentlessly on a project to redesign the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. All present thoroughly enjoyed the presentations, thanks to the Governors and Miss Gettings for attending the event. Well done to the A*spire students!
