March 2018

Huge congratulations to the 102 students in the winning Rock Challenge team It was a fantastic result. I am really looking forward to the final on the 27th April. Seeing it at again at the dance showcase, close up, you have such a clear view of the quality. Well done to all involved in the Dance showcase also it was amazing.

Year 8 students enjoyed visiting Southampton City College to try out new and practical subjects, giving them more information on their pathways choices for GCSE, and how this might affect their future study options Post-16. Students attended sessions on: Hairdressing and Barbering, Engineering, Car Mechanics, Construction and Health and Social Care. Staff at Southampton City College also commented on how the group "had some great ideas on future career paths" and "had a good understanding of apprenticeships too, and how these courses work!”

The A Moment in Time Photography competition the Wildern Art Department has been running has seen some really innovative and creative images being entered from students, parents and staff alike.  This Rotary Club competition was open to 12 schools across Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset and as a school we submitted nearly one hundred entries! Well done to everyone who took part.

International Women's day 2018 was celebrated on the 8th March. Wildern art and photography students from across all year groups responded to the theme of Empowering Young Women, creating some amazing outcomes.  A small exhibition will take place in the D@rt foyer.
