On Thursday 9 February we are taking all Year 10 students on a visit to a county careers fair.
The event is an outstanding way to raise awareness of professional careers and the possibilities of future employment and training that are available to young people after they complete their GCSE exams.
The event is being held at Tresham College, Kettering Campus. There will be a variety of activities on offer, including meeting industry experts across many employment sectors, ‘Have a Go’ vocational activities and information on Colleges, Universities and Apprenticeships.

It is an expectation that students attend interventions after school in order to receive the additional support they need with difficult concepts and gaps that have been identified in their learning. Please support your child in ensuring that they attend, and if they are unable to that they collect the necessary work that will support them going forward.

  • Monday – Science
  • Tuesday – Maths
  • Wednesday – English
  • Thursday – Option subjects – business, ICT, media, history, geography, GCSE PE, BTEC sport, French, Spanish, Art, Textiles, Music
  • Friday – Option subjects – business, ICT, media, history, geography, GCSE PE, BTEC sport, French, Spanish, Art, Textiles, Music


Those students who are attending and doing the extra work are reaping the rewards and we want to ensure that no student is left behind in what is a life changing period of time, and it is a reminder that Hard work beats talent every day.

The year 7 football team continued their success and represented Wellingborough and East Northants in the English School Cup held at Derby County FC on the 27th January 2017. They qualified by winning the district tournament but found some on the National Cup games very tricky. We eventually got knocked out but did ourselves very proud by only losing 2-1 to the eventual winners by a single penalty.


The boys have had a fantastic season so far and we hope to cap it off by winning the District League, we are currently top with only 1 game to go!!


Well Done Boys

Thanks to all who got involved, either with donating or buying or helping Mr Mawby organise it.
