If you haven't got your tickets for Dance Relief on Friday, then hurry up!!  It is going to be a great show and our students would love to see you there. 

 

It is that time of year when our Year 9 students are preparing to make their choices for study at Frinton Campus. I am sure that the Frinton Campus students would tell them that it is very important to read all the information about the subjects before they make a choice. The exams in two years time are likely to be harder and rely much more on the final exam. It is very important that the students are interested in the subject itself so that they have the determination to study really hard.

 

Mr Clapson, with help from Mr Linford, amongst others, is the teacher in charge of a club which has entered the Shell Eco Marathon.  They are building a car to compete in a miles per gallon competition. They have recently secured a place in the European finals that take place during May, in Rotterdam. They are one of only a handful of UK teams and certainly one of the youngest, being made up of six Year 9 students. The car has been tested and it achieved over 2000mpg. Any sponsorship would be  gratefully received!
