A group of 24 pupils and three staff visited Iceland over the half-term break. They toured mountains, volcanoes, rivers, lakes, and caves. They are pictured here sticking together (unlike the North American and Eurasian plates) on The Bridge between Two Continents at Sandvík. Other highlights included trips to The Golden Circle, the black beaches of Iceland’s south coast, a glacier walk, a secret lagoon, hiking to a volcano and exploring Reykjavik. Our pupils were accompanied by Mrs Powell-Wiffen, Visit Leader, Dr Bradley, and Mr Milner.
Several members of the Year 7 cricket squad were rewarded for their commitment to school sport this year with a trip to the third day of the test match between England and Pakistan at Headingley Stadium. They witnessed England wrap up a conclusive win and saw 13 wickets fall, including a spectacular diving catch by Dom Bess, James Anderson sending the middle stump cartwheeling through the air and a hit by Joss Buttler which took the ball into the nearby rugby stadium! Special thanks to Mr. Edney for all his work in coaching the Year 7 cricket team and to Mr Easter for accompanying the visit. The pupils were: Archie Farrell-Smith, Louis Pearce, Max Crompton, Kristo Varghese, Daniel Appleyard, Will Isle, Sam Taylor and Sam Neep.
