Geography students tour the Houses of Parliament

On the 31st March and 1st April, Year 13 Geographers travelled to London.

Houses of parliament

Y13 Students on the Commons veranda

The purpose of theĀ visit was to spend time looking at regeneration in the London Docklands and looking at land-use in Camden, Covent Garden and Kensington. Students were given the opportunity to navigate the tube system, which was a first for them all.

The students were also very fortunate to have a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament led by our local MP, John Hemming. The students were all enthused about politicsĀ and John Hemming was more than happy to answer their many questions over a cup of tea on the Commons veranda. The group then had the opportunity to sit in and witness a health care debate in the House of Commons. A truly fabulous experience was had by all.

Year 11 Easter Revision

Dear parent/carer,

Easter revision sessions 2014

The Easter revision sessions are running the first week of the holidays and students will shortly be receiving a ‘sign up’ questionnaire, via email, to select the sessions they are going to attend. This will enable staff to plan these sessions effectively. Please encourage your children to complete this by Wednesday 9th April 2014.

Please note, that for Maths sessions, they will be invited personally by letter.

Regards,
