We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Derbyshire Outstanding School Achievement Award for Sport and Physical Activity for 2019.
This award recognises the commitment and enthusiasm of our entire PE team and the numerous staff and students who support the department in encouraging all members of the school to lead healthy, active lives. This is reflected not only in exceptional and consistent levels of achievement in local and national competitions but also in high levels of participation throughout the school community for all students regardless of ability. An amazing achievement, congratulations to all.
A group of 28 students from years 9 to 11 took part in a trip to Berlin last week. Students visited all the main sites including the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and monuments and museums dedicated to the Berlin Wall. They were also lucky enough to experience a mini autumnal heatwave, enjoying temperatures of 24 degrees and sunny days, whilst Derbyshire sat under rainclouds. A brilliant if exhausting trip with a fantastic group of students who were an absolute credit to the school.
