March 3rd: Sixth Form social paintballing

A potentially painful way to have fun! Sixth formers thought they were brave and resourceful until they were hit by a pinging hard paintball; there were some who called for mercy while others sought down their quarry. A fun and bonding day out in sunny Croydon.

March 14th: Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9) Institut Francais visit

Key stage three members got the chance to practise their French amongst some real live French people in a real bit of France in the middle of South Kensington. There was language practice and some fun activities to stimulate a greater awareness of French language and culture.

Founded in 1910, the Institut français du Royaume-Uni comprises a language centre, a cinema (Ciné Lumière), a multi-media library (La Médiathèque), a children’s library (Bibliothèque Quentin Blake) and a café-restaurant, and welcomes 200,000 people each year.

At the heart of the Institut français’ mission is the teaching of the French language.
