Attendance Trip

Sixty three (63) students were treated to an afternoon of fun at REBOUND Trampoline Park in Bicester for having perfect attendance.

This has been the second Attendance Trip for the academic year which has students rating this one as the best to date.

Students were joined by members of staff Mr Merrick, Mr Walton, Mr Bell, Miss Al Ashkar and Mr Jackson who all didn’t hesitate to join the children in bouncing around.

Meeting Author Matt Dickinson
On the 27th March a selection of year 7 and year 8 students went to Sibford school for an author talk. We joined other students in the area to hear an inspiring talk from Carnegie nominated author, adventurer and award-winning Director/Cameraman Matt Dickinson. Matt showed the students dramatic images from Everest, Antarctica, Africa, Central Asia and the Arctic, bringing his intrepid adventures alive. Matt shared with the students how these experiences have inspired his writing and read exciting extracts from The Everest Files trilogy, the Mortal Chaos series and Lie, Kill, Walk Away.  A quick fire Q & A session rounded off the talk and gave the audience the chance to ask those burning questions.

Geography field tripGeography Field trip

Over 40 Year 11 Geographers from Wykham Park Academy and Space Studio Banbury battled the elements, on Wednesday 13 March, to go to Amersham Field Centre and complete some vital coursework for their GCSEs.

The students were greeted by a member of staff for a talk about rivers and the different parts of this geographical feature.

All students then went to the source of the nearby river, measuring the width, depth and flow (velocity) using a hydro prop. They then did the test again at the confluence of the river.

After all the tests had been done the students returned to the field centre and compared their results with each other.
