Well done to all of the girls who took part in the second round of the National French Spelling Bee competition. You showed nerves of steel standing up on the stage in front of all of your friends and classmates. Congratulations to the winners – Fatima, Annette, Eleanor and Lucy! I look forward to working with you before the regional heat at Manchester Metropolitan University in March!

Berlin Christmas Markets – Dec 2012

Berlin featured


On a frosty winter’s morning in December, 44 Year 7s and 5 teachers set off from school headed for Berlin. We had a lovely, wintry time, filled with gingerbread hearts, chocolate covered fruit kebabs and Kinderpunsch. Activities included shopping at the Christmas markets, a visit to the Jewish museum, a climb up the Reichstag and a coach tour of the city with a view of the remaining segment of the Berlin wall.
