Pi Day Fun 15/3/24

We are the Pi Day winning form, 7 Armstrong. Earlier last week, we participated in the Pi Day quiz, where all the Year 7 forms battled it out to get the most right in the fastest time. We managed to get all but one right in 5 minutes. When we got to the assembly on Friday 15/3/24, there was a surprise waiting for us. We got to pie the maths teachers, including our form tutor! Some of the people who pied the teachers said how amazing and exciting it was to get ‘revenge’ on their teachers. We’re very excited to see it again next year!

PE News

It’s been another action packed month in PE. Starting with a massive congratulations to our talented year 7 netball team. A close game versus Loreto College was played out in the district cup, however sadly we suffered an unfortunate 5-4 loss. Finishing runners up in the district cup competition is an impressive achievement. Well done girls! Player of the Match was recognised as Corin N.


Recognition to both the Year 10 and 11 netball teams in their district league matches vs Loreto. Players of the game were identified as Evie H and Isla M


Well done to all our KWS kickboxers on a hugely successful grading afternoon just before half term. Sensei Teasha was absolutely glowing about your efforts and how well you have done.


In basketball, the Year 8 team had three excellent wins against Samuel Ryder (28-14), SJL (22-16) and Marlborough (37-30). The teams were fantastic throughout. Special mention to Scott W and also Kai W representing the school team for the first time. 


In football, a great game for the U12 girls football team against a very local school. A 6-1 win with lots of positives to take away. Goals from Poppy (3), Sophie (2) and also one from Lucy. Amazing work girls!


Earlier this term, we had an unlucky 5-3 loss for our U15 football team versus STAHS in the district cup. A great second half performance brought us back from 4-1 down.  Lexi F was acknowledged as the player of the match.


Milkayla C in Year 11 represented Hertfordshire superbly in an U16 game vs Suffolk.


Moving onto the boys, the Year 7 team progressed into the semi final of the district cup with a 3-0 win against Samuel Ryder. Josh R scored directly from a corner and Luke W saved a penalty. 


Our Year 10s claimed a hard fought 3-1 win last Saturday, showing great character after a tough season. Coming back from 1-0 down, two goals from Jules W and Ollie T proved the difference. Notable performance from Ben B in midfield.


In the county cup plate, Year 11 continued their fine run of form with a 3-0 win against St Columba’s College. Three excellently taken first half goals by Dylan, Joe and Jordan took the game away from our opposition. Aside from the goal scorers, George in goal made two huge saves at key moments, Jamie chipped in with a vital interception, Tom M was solid at the back and Fin worked tirelessly in midfield out of possession. We look forward to the semi final.


In the district cup, our Year 8 boys team won 2-1 yesterday to progress to the final of the district cup. A gritty performance on a big pitch meant the boys didn’t play as fluidly as they normally do, but we very much look forward to the final on Tuesday. In addition to this, just before half term our Year 8 boys team progressed to the semi final of the county cup with a resounding 4-1 victory over St Edmund’s College away from home. After a difficult first few minutes in the game, they recovered fantastically and the intensity to win the ball back made us very difficult to live with. Ayaan scored an excellent goal, which capped his most impressive performance for the school so far. We have our semi final on Monday 25th March.


I also wanted to acknowledge the brilliant support that various students have provided over the last few weeks with collecting video evidence and also for participating in the live moderation for our Year 11 GCSE students. Last week, a group of Year 11 girls braved the cold to support their friends by participating in a videoed netball moderation to ensure we had enough players, despite not needing to be assessed themselves. Also, within the GCSE cohort, a significant number of students chose to help video their teammates by holding the camera for an extended amount of time. Your help is greatly appreciated by me and by your fellow students I am sure too.

Library update

Ramadan Celebrations
To join in with the school’s Ramadan Celebrations, we have made a display with our lovely student team. There are some educational and entertaining non-fiction and fiction books to choose from including: books with Muslim characters, books by Muslim authors and books about Islam. Students are welcome to pop by the library and borrow from the special selection.

Blind Date with a Book

One of our student librarians had a brilliant idea to make a ‘Blind Date with a Book’ display. Jess chose books, looked up information about the books genres and themes and, with a group of friends, prepared the display. Finley designed the poster. It has been very popular with many students borrowing the wrapped books and finding a good match or trying out a book they wouldn’t usually have chosen!
