Some of our brilliant anti crime team met with the Deputy Mayor of Ramsey to showcase their posters about county lines (the transportation of illegal drugs from one area to another, often by children or vulnerable people who are coerced into criminal activity by gangs) and explain what they have been up to as a team. The Deputy Mayor chose two winning posters which will be displayed around the town.

Our Year 7 and 8 students have been enjoying OOP, which are out of school activities that aim to inspire students to engage in new activities, develop their interpersonal skills, meet new people and learn more about a newfound interest.

Last term, students enjoyed multiple sports clubs such as hockey, football and netball, as well as a variety of other sessions such as acting master class, design and make, and an anti-crime team.

This term, students can take advantage of a range of new clubs including dance and fitness, clay and crafts, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

Our brilliant students collected essential items to put into wellness packages to help support homeless people in Cambridgeshire. As part of the annual initiative, students in each form group chose a number between one and 25. Each student is then responsible for donating the item that is revealed on their numbered day. Items include packaged food, cereal bars, and bottled water, as well as various other items such as toothpaste, gloves and hand warmers. These are then set to be collated into individual care packages by the Sixth Form Events Committee at the school to help spread Christmas cheer to those most in need.
