Year 12 Philosophy and Ethics

Year 12 Philosophy and Ethics students had a visit from a local spiritualist today.
Students have recently completed the topic of soul, mind and body as part of their AS Level course. Jacqui gave students a great insight into why there could possibly be a spiritual realm and how spirituality links to Plato, Aristotle and Descartes philosophical ideas. This will support students knowledge and understanding for their up and coming Philosophy exam in May.

Sixth Form Netball Tournament 

The sixth form netball team were invited to play in an end of season tournament at King Henry VIII.
The girls haven’t had many fixtures so they jumped at the opportunity to play. We had some competitive games and some which allowed the girls to play out of position in different combinations to allow more fun.
With all other schools being private schools it gave the girls a lot of competition and forced them to play some good quality netball.
We look forward to more fixtures next year.
Well done,
Mrs Turton
