Headteacher’s Welcome

We have a vibrant extra-curricular life not only through our specialist status as a Performing Arts College but also through our extensive sports programme and much more besides.

Duke Of Edinburgh

The sun was shining over Rivington Pike as both the Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh groups went out on the second training walk of the year.  To prepare them for their expeditions, this time the students walked with their rucksacks packed as though they were camping overnight.  This allowed them to have a real understanding of the weight they would be carrying on their backs and hopefully realise that 5 pairs of shoes really aren’t necessary, which some of the girls found out!  To keep their spirits up it wasn’t just Mr O’Thy’s awful jokes that made them walk faster, it was the new canine additions to the team who literally pulled them up and down the hills, sometimes in the wrong direction!  Mr Bellamy’s dog, Cody and Mr O’Thy’s dog, Honey joined the resident DofE dog Donny (Miss Garnett’s), but were sadly beaten to the finish line by the ever so competitive sixth form team, who walked 5.5 miles in under 2 hours!  The students will be putting all of the skills learned on the day walks into practice on their expeditions next, with the Bronze year 9 team out in May half term, and the Silver sixth form team out at the end of June.
