October 6th to 11th- Sixth Form Humanities trip to Amsterdam

A relaxing few days in the Dutch capital exploring the waterways, canals and magnificent old Dutch facades. There was also time for some galleries and museums in a whirlwind five days.

The trio doubles as a humanities trip as well as a chance for the Sixth Form students to interact socially and spend some time together in a new informal environment with other students and teachers, and get to see a new part of the World!

Mr Yearsley (Head of Sixth Form) with some Sixth Form students on a canal tour:

October 15th – Year 12 Science

Robotics Competition: Oxford University, King’s Centre

Computer science students set off for the national level of a robotics competition in which they had to build and programme their own robot. After winning the local northwest London round, this was a big step up and they rose to the challenge.

 

October 18: Year 7-9 Key Stage 3 trip to Victoria and Albert Museum

The V&A is commonly thought of as the World’s “Leading Museum of Art and Design”. The Key stage 3 students enjoyed a fascinating visit to this wonderful old museum with a very modern twist. So much to see – and to do. They had the opportunity to try on some well-designed, antique costumes into the bargain.

October 19 – Police Visit – Assembly talk

Learning about what the law does to help us and how the police put their lives on the line on a daily basis. This visit was illuminating, as the officers were both friendly and sympathetic. There was time afterwards to speak individually to the policeman and woman, something of a real novelty to finds that they are truly human and go out of their way in keeping us safe.
