Dream Team: Congratulations Prefects on your Appointment to the Senior roles in school

It was a very difficult process to appoint both Head Boy and Head Girl as all candidates were outstanding in every part of the interview process. I am delighted and proud that Brandon has been appointed as Head Boy and that India has been appointed Head Girl. The Deputies and Assistants are a quality team for the Head Boy and Girl to work with and the Deputy Team consists of Amelia and Edlin;  Assistants: Alice and James. They have already, along with the Prefect Body, set the highest standards around school. Their speeches delivered at the July Presentation Awards Evening in front of a hall of 300 were excellent. They are a credit to St Mary's.

Cadbury World

After a week of researching and project work, Year 9 finally got to visit a family favourite, Cadbury world in Bourneville. The students started with a fun filled 4d cinema experience to begin their journey through the history of Cadburys. We then travelled back in time to the Georgian period, when John Cadbury started out as a tea and mustard purveyor. Students then got to ‘live out’ the life of a cocoa bean, through a simulated manufacturing process.

Rufugee Awareness Week Workshop

Susannah Year 8: On Monday 18th June, the Geography department had the pleasure of hosting a two hour workshop in honour of the 20th Annual Refugee Week, where we celebrate the contributions, creativity and resilience of all refugees. Both year 7 and year 8 HAP students were invited to participate in this workshop, learning about the journeys and struggles that refugees face in order to leave their war torn countries in search of a safe life. On entering the classroom, students were greeted by Liz Hibberd. Liz has worked with refugees from all over the world, from the Calais Jungle to Wigan/Manchester, helping refugees to settle, develop skills and education,  and to reclaim their human rights.
