A very special Easter week

This year we chose to dedicate our Easter week activities to the memory of Anne Blunt. For many years Anne served our school as a highly respected member of the Governing Board. Her children attended our school, some of her relatives still do. Anne was a fantastic supporter of everything that we do! She sadly passed away after a recent battle with cancer. Our Student Ambassadors decided that all money raised through our Easter activities would be donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care in her memory.

The Ambassadors planned an exciting week for students across school to get involved in and created a presentation to deliver to students during form time telling them all about it. Watching how our Ambassadors have grown in confidence as they presented their plans to our Year 11 students was fantastic. Year 11 students were a fantastic audience and gave the Ambassadors a huge round of applause!


Activities included an Easter egg where the Ambassadors hid eggs around the school for students to find. Ambassadors organised an Easter quiz to help students to learn about the real reason behind the meaning of Easter. They stayed behind after school on Monday to make cakes to sell at Tuesday during break and lunch time. Huge thanks to Albertina, Crystal and Christina from Year 10 and Josh from Year 9 who stayed to help supervise the Year 7 Ambassador team. Finally, our students also planned a non uniform day for the last day of term. This had a yellow theme in the spirit of Easter.


Our Easter endeavours have helped to raise £700 for Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of Anne Blunt. Huge thanks to everyone for their support!
