    Chemistry Students Visit Warwick University
    15th April 2013

    On Monday the 15th April Miss Wright and Mr Reid took two A-level students and 18 GCSE Chemistry students to the chemistry department at Warwick University. The pupils spent the day working in the university laboratory making aspirin and paracetamol. They used the laboratory that students use during their degree courses and had a tour of the research labs. It was a great opportunity to have an insight into what chemistry labs are like and we were honoured to use the specialist equipment that was provided. They also used different methods to analyse their results and several students made large amounts of pure aspirin and paracetamol and compared them to over the counter drugs. The pupils all worked really well and Dr Nick Barker who ran the day was really impressed with the pupils and how well they did. It was a really good day and everyone was enthusiastic and clearly enjoyed using the university equipment. Read More

  • Inauguration of Pope Francis

    Inauguration of Pope Francis
    19th March 2013

    Today marks the The Inauguration of Pope Francis as the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church and successor of St. Peter. At just after 6pm on 13th March the 115 Cardinals cast their 5th vote of this Conclave and elected the new pope of the Catholic Chruch. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, aged 76 from Argentina will be the first Latin American Pope, the first Jesuit Pope and also the first Pope Francis! The Son of a railway worker, the Archbishop of Buenos Aires is a Jesuit intellectual who travels by bus and has a practical approach to poverty: when he was appointed a cardinal, Bergoglio persuaded hundreds of Argentinians not to fly to Rome to celebrate with him but instead to give the money they would have spent on plane tickets to the poor. He was a fierce opponent of Argentinas decision to legalise gay marriage in 2010, arguing children need to have the right to be raised and educated by a father and a mother. He was created a cardinal by John Paul II on 21 February 2001. Read More

    On Monday 11th March we welcomed back artist John Denaro in the art department to do a full day portrait workshop with a group of gifted & talented GCSE artists in Year 11. The group of 15 students explored a large scale detailed realistic 'self portrait' of the artist made with chalks and charcoal and he told the group about his background and that he was once a pavement artist. John taught the group a step by step guide on how to produce a large scale self portrait using charcoal and pastels. The students found measuring the proportions of the face challenging to begin with but some became adept in the techniques of layering the pastels to record light and shadows to create a good likeness of themselves.
