Yesterday, the school held its annual Friendship Day, a day devised to welcome our future Year 7 students and their parents to the school.
After welcome speeches from Headteacher, Mr Brownhill, and Head of Year 7, Ms Gladstone, the Year 6 students were taken to classrooms to experience various subjects being taught at Central Foundation.
Each future student was ‘buddied’ up with a current Central Foundation Year 7 pupil to help establish friendships, which will improve the quality of their time at the school. Together the students experimented with liquids in science, baked scones in food technology, learnt about the importance of branding in business, created screen prints in art and played team games in drama.
The informative and inspirational day ended with an absorbing performance by the school’s choir and a thank-you from the Headteacher.
Thank you to all the families who attended the event, we look forward to welcoming you again in the new academic year.

Our Year 11 boys, who currently studying GCSE Drama, recently completed their practical examination in which they performed the stage adaptation of William Golding’s best-selling novel Lord of the Flies. The students performed exceptionally well for their exam and should be very proud of themselves.
Thank you to Ms Tully and Ms Southerden for directing the productions and motivating the students.
