A Peake into space …

On February 2nd, our year 10 students enjoyed the webcast of “The Cosmic Classroom” from the International Space Station with British astronaut Tim Peake

The lesson was an hour long and Tim taught students about microgravity, the physiological effects of space flight and what space food really smells and tastes like. He also demonstrated dissolving fizzing vitamin tablet in a floating sphere of water – it was extremely cool!

What a performance!

Year 11 BTEC Dance and Performing Arts students brought the house down with their showcase on January 27th. The students performed dance and musical theatre pieces they had directed, devised or interpreted themselves. It was a fitting end to three years of effort and the reaction of the students at the finale showed what a close-knit group they have become.

Musical pieces included interpretations of singles from each of the last five decades as a grandfather and grandmother looked back over their lives with their family, and a fantastic interpretation of Cell Block Tango from Chicago. Student-choreographed dance pieces explored the themes of migration, gender equality, love and loss.

In the picture the students are performing Seasons of Love, from the musical Rent.

Well done to everyone – an evening to remember!
