first run out for our multi sports football team
The multi sports club football team welcomed Burgess Hill Academy for their first competitive fixture.
The whole team displayed exceptional determination and team work to put in a brilliant performance. Whilst the result didn't go our way, every player should be extremely proud of their performance. Well done!

out of school success
At the recent Acro gymnastics National Qualifier in Kent, Max and his partner (representing the Triangle) was awarded a silver medal and high enough overall score to successfully qualify for the Inter-Regional Chanpionship which is being held in early May.
Max will be representing the South East region at the Inter-Regionals. It’s fantastic to see this well-deserved success after training for 12 hours a week and more in a highly competitive group.
Some creative examples of the Year 8 Graphics designs for the box packaging to accompany their Pewter Keyring project this term.
For students who are self isolating:
When students are self isolating and feeling well, it is important that they keep up with their learning. For most lessons teachers will ask students to join a Google meet. These Google meets will take place at the same time as the timetabled lesson. Students should check their subject Google classrooms to find out details of the Google meets and the work that has been set by the teacher. There is advice on how to join a Google meet through Google classroom on this link. If students are struggling to join the Google Meet, or have questions about the work, it is important that they let their teacher know.
