Mrs Lockey to complete the Manchester Marathon (March 2012)
On 29th April, Mrs Lockey will be taking part in her first ever marathon. Training has been going very well over the last few months; with many of you having seen her plodding the streets of a weekend! She would like to thank everyone who has sponsored her so far. She says, “It really is motivation during the painful and sometimes lonely miles to know that in completing this event I will be raising money to help disadvantaged children in the local area. Without this support training, especially during the cold dark nights, would be much more difficult to get out and do!”
Mrs Lockey’s form group are also helping in fundraising by each of them (26 in total) completing 1 mile each around the school grounds at some point between now and the day of the marathon. Between them they will cover the marathon distance – its just a shame they can’t all do a leg each on the actual day!
If anyone else feels that they would like to sponsor Mrs Lockey and her form, then you can do so at http://www.justgiving.com/Sarah-Lockey. Here you can find out more about the charity, Help a Capital Child, that she’s running for and make an easy online donation to a very worth cause. Thank you in anticipation of your support!

Many thanks to everybody who donated a shoebox filled with items for the Operation Christmas Child appeal. We collected over 100 boxes which will be bringing cheer to less fortunate children around the world. Many special thanks to the charities group for organising and promoting this appeal.
Children in Need was also a great success raising £800. Thank you for all the cake donations for the cake sale which raised over £150.
Friends’ Trip to York (November 2011)
Many thanks to all those who took part in the Friends’ trip to York, which was a very enjoyable day. Congratulations to the winners of the quiz and we hope that bank balances have not been too seriously depleted because of all the shopping! We hope to organise a similar event next year.
Eco-Schools Award (October 2011)
We were delighted to receive the Eco-Schools Silver Award as recognition of all the hard work we have undertaken as a school to improve our impact on the environment.
The award process started an Environmental Review which gave us a realistic picture of our school’s current environmental performance. The Environmental Review informed our Action Plan, helping our school to decide what change is necessary and how urgently the changes are required. The Environmental Review was carried out by the pupils and covered: litter; waste reduction and recycling; energy; school grounds/ biodiversity; water use; pupil activities; healthy living; transport and global perspectives.
We are now looking forward to working towards the prestigious Green Flag award in the future.
