European Student Convention 2017
We are so proud of our students. The whole school worked together fundraising to send four seniors for a week over the Easter holiday to European Student Convention. The students ran 1,200 m several times a week from January until the end of March and the collective effort was the equivalent of running from Manchester to Brussels. The students who went did not disappoint their fellow fundraisers. We are delighted with the results below. Added to this, the students’ behaviour was exemplary and they made many friends and had a great week away at Millfield in Somerset. This is a beautiful setting with Olympic standard accommodation, a theatre and a concert hall.
