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. The Accelerated Reading scheme encourages younger students to improve their reading ability, complete quizzes relating to the books they have read and compete to gain points and be top of their league.     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
