Students in the courtyardMr Marston spoke about Gardening Club in last week's Headteacher's Message and we managed to catch-up with them after school yesterday, where they were busy planting (very organised too!) - we can't wait to see how this develops, thank you!
"As I write this the Gardening Club are planting bulbs in the Courtyard Garden for the Spring. No one has asked them to do this, they have done it because they want to. They have sourced the bulbs and the plants and the tools and have got on with the job. That’s impressive and pretty special." - Mr Marston


Robin Hood & Babes in the Wood posterWe love to hear about our students' extra-curricular activities outside of school. Ellie, Year 13, is taking on the role of Maid Marian in the Corn Exchange Wallingford Sinodun Players' pantomime 'Robin Hood and Babes in the Wood'. This is Ellie's first panto and she is thrilled to take on a main role - she also intends to do a Musical Theatre Degree after Sixth Form.

We hear that there are many other Wallingford students involved in the performance - break a leg!

The show runs from Friday 17th January - Saturday 1st February 2020.
