Much like a fire drill, this is about preparedness to ensure student and staff safety. We hope to never have to use these procedures (and there is certainly no indication of threat at all) but we have a duty to ensure we are prepared for the different types of scenario we could be faced with in 21st century Britain ...

    Year 7 trip to the Symphony Hall

    On the 31st January, year 7 had the opportunity to visit the Symphony Hall in Birmingham. When we arrived, we saw many other schools taking part in this amazing experience.

    When everyone was seated, the music began. We were introduced to the presenter (Rachel Leach) who took us on a journey around the world of music. We listened to many famous pieces of music from very famous composers such as Edward Elgar and Maurice Ravel. We learnt many facts about the famous composers, including what their music was about. One of the most interesting facts I heard was that Edward Elgar composed a piece of music about a bull-dog! ...
