  • Year 9 Preferences Booklet

    At the end of this academic year the current Year 9 cohort will advance to the Key Stage 4 curriculum.  At this stage in their academic studies the students will cease to follow a common education structure, but will instead embark upon the educational pathway of their choice.

    Making the right choice of subjects with your child is perhaps one of the most important factors that will determine their future career prospects. Not only will students be given the opportunity to select the subjects they wish to follow, but also the nature of the courses they will follow.  The demands and expectations of the different qualification types differ greatly and it is important that our students are correctly matched to the courses that suit their learning needs.

  • La Fosca Water Sports Trip:

    We took 29 students from Years 8, 9 & 10 to Spain for a water sports trip during the May half-term.  The fantastic trip took in activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, pico sailing, wind surfing, snorkling among others.  It also included a day trip to Barcelona and the whole week was a great success.

    The company in charge of the trip commended our students on their attitude in a testing week.  We are investigating going on a similar trip in the summer of 2019.

  • Harry Potter Studios Review

    On Thursday the 6th of July 90 Years 9 and 10 Media Studies and Design Technology students went to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studios.

    The students got to experience the magic behind the movies and see where the franchise really began and discovered how the set and props were created. They also got a chance to see the original costumes and marvel at the creature workshop. Some students also made the most of the CGI and special effects experiences on offer, such as flying a broomstick in front of a green screen or having a drink with Hagrid in the optical illusion exhibit.

    In preparation for their forthcoming GCSE studies, the Year 9 students have started working on the topics of tropical Rainforests and Cold Environments.

    As two of the topics included in the new GCSE Syllabus, this will give them a great head start for next year. These models-created by the students and based on self selected success criteria-have helped to develop their understanding of the role of tropical Rain Forests and to learn about the different layers found within them.
