My words last week included reference to some excellent expedition work by Year 9 & 10 towards their Bronze Award DofE. It was so lovely to hear from the independent assessors collectively just how well our boys and girls worked together as they navigated through the eastern Thames Valley/Chilterns.

Special RE Mention from Ms Nezza
9D presented a court case of 'God Vs Science' in Religious Studies. This included a spectacular case led by Henry A and Sam K in 9D, who both equally stood their ground! Mr Hogg, being the court judge, concluded Henry had won due to his amazing argument on how Miracles cannot be proven by Science, but the Jury decided it was a win for Sam, as God has his mysterious ways!
