Competitions give students the chance to compare their knowledge, talents and skills with their peers and opportunities are provided for individuals and groups within and outside of school. Through the House system students compete to earn the most points, be the best at Sports Day, bake the best cakes, take the best photograph, win the talent competition and raise the most money for charity. Outside of school talented mathematicians take part in the National Maths Challenge, able scientists can compete in the Salters Chemistry competition and creative English students can enter the National Poetry Trials. Through our good relationship with Sedgley and Wombourne Rotary Club, students can also take part in their public speaking, Rotary Young Chef and Rotary Young Musician competitions.
During the summer of 2020, our new year 7 cohort were asked to enter our ‘Lockdown Competition’ where they showcased the activities that they had been involved in that had helped them mentally and physically.
Isobel won a family ticket to Wolverhampton Family Golf. Kasie and Freya won £10 gift vouchers.
Black History Month
In October 2020, we celebrated Black History Month by asking our pupils to create a display that included an iconic figure that has been influential in black history.
Harry in Year 7 won with his entry of an advent-calendar-style display with 30 figures, truly phenomenal.
MFL Christmas Cards
The MFL hold an annual Christmas card competition where entrants have an opportunity of having their design printed.
DT Christmas Baubles
In December, we ask our KS3 pupils to design and create their own 2D and 3D baubles in our annual Christmas bauble competition.
They looked amazing displayed along our glass corridor.
