Year 10 DNA Performance

May 23rd, 2019

Last week our Year 10 drama students performed their own stage adaptation of Dennis Kelly’s ‘DNA’ to the Year 11 GCSE students about to sit their exam on the very same text. A wonderful performance that hopefully will help the year 11s nail their exam today! Well done boys.

 

Our students nailed the Debate Mate Cup this term at University of East London, with one team winning all 3 debates. Prior to the debate, the students had no information on what the three arguments would be, and they weren’t able to research the topics at all. Incredibly impressive from our Year 8s, 9s and 10s.

Congratulations boys!

Our Year 12s went to Ashurst London last week to interview for sought-after work experience placements at the firm. What an exciting opportunity… and don’t the students scrub up well! Good luck to all of the candidates, we will wait until June to find out who has been successful. Fingers crossed!

 

Well done to our Year 12s who stepped out on their trek across Mount Snowdon for their Duke of Edinburgh Gold training expedition during the Easter holidays. It was a chilly trip, with ice on the tents in the morning and bright skies throughout the trip. The students will head out again later in the year to complete the award, hopefully with some warmer weather!

CFBS works with The Acces Project and Slaughter and May to provide a programme for Y10-13 students of free tuition from a professional, in a subject of their choice, to help them gain a place at a top university.

A student on the programme, The Key Project, is twice as likely to attend a top third university than another student with the same academic track record and background who is not on the programme.

Year 9 students wanting to apply to be on the programme can do so by completing this form: bit.ly/TAPlication2019

There will be a Year 9 information assembly for the students this Friday 3rd May.

Deadline for applications – 10th May 2019.
