Year 7 Handball Final

Form A3 ran out winners of the Year 7 Handball Tournament put together by Mr Glover and Mr Winter, on Wednesday morning.

Runners up A2 recovered from an early deficit to level the scores up at 5-5 before the two sides traded goals with the scores level at 9-9 at the full time whistle.

Cheered on by ecstatic fans from both sides of the pitch, the match was high in quality and even higher in chances with either team looking likely to emerge as champions before the ‘next goal wins it’ scenario cropped up with A3, kitted in orange, peeling through the blue defence of A2 to take home the glory.

A collection of our Year 10 students visited Stelrad Radiators in the first week of May as part of the Cutlers Program.

The visit was designed to give students a better understanding of the manufacturing and engineering processes within the company, and judging by the picture below, they all had a great time.

We thank Stelrad for the fantastic opportunity.

Year 7 University of Sheffield Trip (8th May 2018)

The students, who behaved exceptionally on the trip, saw the university’s first ever building (below), as well as the Students’ Union, the tallest academic building in Britain, and one of just two remaining paternoster lifts in the UK.
