Recognition for the school's excellent work

The school has been shortlisted in the TES School Awards 2022, recognising the fantastic environmental and sustainability work inspired by our Head of Biology, Mr Noah Shawcross.

The school is also a finalist in the ‘Special Sixth Form’ category, and highly commended in the Giving Something Back category of the Muddy Stilettos awards for 2022.

Science labs donate safety goggles and glasses to medics

Our Head of Biology, Noah Shawcross, saw an article about the request to schools for protective eyewear for medics, which you can read about here https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/mar/25/schools-asked-donate-science-goggles-nhs-use-face-shields

In response to this, all our science labs have donated their protective eyewear, including goggles and glasses, to local GP surgeries.

 

Don't forget the animals

The school has remained open to take care of the children of key workers so our caterers Holroyd Howe have kindly stayed open to keep everyone sustained. One of the unseen benefits of this is that the leftover fruit and vegetables and the peelings are being donated to Exmoor Zoo to feed the animals. Following a rain-soaked few months and now the current pandemic keeping the zoo closed to visitors for the foreseeable future, we are glad to do a little bit to help.
