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.
In May 2021, our pupils were asked to take part in our cooking challenge.

Mrs Glover's House Point Challenge.
Each year, our new year 7s storm the leader board with house points so this year I want to see more of our KS4 pupils getting the credit they deserve.
So, I'm launching a house point challenge.
Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to earn as many house points as you can between now and half term. I will be awarding the individual and the tutor group that earns the most house points with a prize!
You have until 22nd October.
