Music Department ISM Gold Award

ISM GCSE Gold Black

Music Department ISM Gold Award: The Music Department has been awarded a gold award from the Incorporated Society of Musicians for their GCSE work.

Last year over 20% of the cohort took GCSE music, making us one of only 87 schools in the country to have so many pupils studying music at GCSE. This includes the 4 specialist music schools as well as top independent schools which have a clear focus on music. Including these specialist schools we were ranked 19th in the country for the music results. It is wonderful to have such a flourishing Music Department and it reflects well that the value of studying the arts at GCSE is understood. Congratulations to Ellie Lane and her Music Department on receiving this impressive award.

English Schools Athletics Cup Competition

The Prince of Wales Stadium played host to a fantastic afternoon of English Schools Athletics Cup competition Monday after school. Each team was required to enter 14 (boys) or 12 (girls) athletes with each competitor accumulating as many points as they could across two events. Brilliant performances from the Junior Boys' and Junior Girls' teams saw both finish in 1st place. Both the Intermediate Boys' and Girls' team finished in 3rd position. We await results from other county rounds in the South West to find out if the points totals are enough for us to qualify for the Regional Rounds.

There were many fantastic individual performances from the four teams, with the following achieving the top single score:

Junior Boys- Daksh Bagi (25 points) for his time of 12.5s in the 100m
Junior Girls- Molly Powlesland (21 points) for her time of 5:29 in the 1500m
Inter Boys- George Williamson and Tim Andrew (both 20 points) for their time of 11.9 in the 100m.

International Baton Twirling Association 2016 Junior Champ. Grace Kent

Congratulations to Grace Kent, who has become the International Baton Twirling Association’s 2016 Junior Champion for Basic Strut (technical marching) at the recent competition held in Bournemouth.

Over the last few years I have been working my way up through five classes up to advanced for basic strut, making me eligible to compete for the title of national champion. Basic strut is a technical form of marching, and while it looks quite simple it leaves me both physically and mentally tired after coming off the arena.

The competition took place over four days, with every member of my team entering into eleven different events, some solo and some group work. We came away with very successful results all round and it feels great to see our hard work has paid off, with one of our team performances winning against the team representing England in the European championships next month.
