Year 7 students visit Rochester!

On the 19th and 20th April the History department organised two one day trips to the historic city of Rochester. Students were given a chance to explore the second oldest cathedral in Britain and its Norman roots before climbing the tallest keep in Britain at Rochester Castle and hearing the bloody story of the 1215 siege.

Year 7 historians were also given a workshop at the Guildhall museum that brought to life the origins and development of the city from Romans to Saxons to Normans. Students even had the opportunity to dress up in armour from each of these eras. Finally, the groups were invited to explore the medieval high street in the spring sunshine including a visit to the historic fudge shop! Teachers and locals were both hugely impressed with the enthusiasm and politeness of our students!

DAOS to build new Teaching Block!

We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our bid to construct a new building to replace our old teaching block! Much of the funding will be coming from The Department of Education and our thanks goes to the Worshipful Company of Brewers who will help fund the rest.  Works will hopefully commence in January 2018.

Sixth Form Prefects at Brewers’ Hall!

Our senior prefects enjoyed a joint Reception at Brewers’ Hall this week with Aldenham School prefects in recognition of their service to their schools. The Brewers’ Company is the trustee for the two major foundations that support the two schools. The Dame Alice Owen Foundation supports Dame Alice Owen’s School in Potters Bar whilst the Richard Platt Foundation supports Aldenham School in Elstree.
