Freya Talbot – Rowing Success!

Year 10 student Freya Talbot has been working hard this year with her rowing.  As Junior Rep she has nominated one of her team members for not only a Leicester Mercury Sports Award, but also a City Council Sports Award where they came first and runner up!

Freya has also been in many competitions representing Leicester, forged links with Nottingham rowing club and has been coaching new juniors on a Saturday.  She is also part of the team organising a rowing course this summer, alongside raising funds and Junior Lead for fundraising for a defib for the club!

Campus Athletics Team

Well done to all involved.

KS3 Cricket tournament

Our KS3 Cricket team enjoyed a great afternoon in the sun on Monday in the Hinckley and Bosworth area tournament hosted at Dixie Grammar.

Unfortunately, the boys came up short in their two games against Market Bosworth and hosts Dixie.  Our second match, against Dixie, was extremely close after a great batting performance from Avraj Lalh and Devonte Khan set them a challenging total, which they chased down with just 2 balls to spare.  Another highlight was Kieran Tillson taking 3 wickets in one over against a strong Market Bosworth batting line up.

Well done to all the boys involved!

Congratulations to Year 10 student Holly Philpott, who has won the KS4 creative writing competition.
In her response Holly develops her visual stimulus into a complex narrative that included engaging places and people. Holly’s writing really stood out when she included dialogue, successfully creating a strong sense of character and relationships. Her prizes include a book on creative writing, chocolate and her work displayed in the English corridor.
Keep up the hard work HOLLY!

Grade Raiser Day at De Montfort University

On Thursday 10th May the Maths Faculty took 30 Year 11 students for a Grade Raiser Day to
De Montfort University, where they took part in a day of Mathematics in preparation for their GCSE exams.
The students found the day extremely beneficial.

GOOD LUCK to all students taking their exams, from the Maths Faculty!

Band Night!

Last night, six rock bands from across the campus performed as part of a band night held in the theatre.  There was sweat, powering riffs, driving rhythms and a whole lot of rock!  Big thanks to all the students who performed and all of those that came to watch and support.

Hopefully it’ll be the first of many rock nights to come…
