Explore Learning National Young Mathematicians' Awards Round 1

Last week we took four Y8 students to the first round of the National Young Mathematicians' Awards at Explore Learning Whiteley. It's a group competition designed to stretch high-ability maths students and get them working outside their comfort zones. They were selected from about fifteen students who were put forward by teachers and they have trained for the event over the last month. They put in a great account of themselves today and we will find out whether or not they qualified for round 2 at the end of next week.

Marking the centenary of the end of WW1

By way of marking the centenary of the end of the 1914-1918 world war, the art department worked in collaboration with the Technology department to create an installation for Remembrance day 2018. Year 9 art and photography students bought in photographs from home of family members who served either during WW1 or in a conflict since. For many families, this opened up poignant conversations about loved ones and the sacrifices that were made. Some of our students' photographs can be seen here. Inspired by contemporary artist Christian Boltanski who creates art about war, courage, loss and suffering, students used a photographic emulsion transfer process to create individual memorials. The installation is also lit by candlelight.

Wildern 4-4 Priory Match Summary

On the 2nd November, Wildern’s Year 8s exited the Hampshire Cup with an extremely disappointing defeat. After two goals put us up, Priory School came back and went level at the end of the first half. Wildern went 3-2 up then went into a 4-2 lead after a fantastic header from Bailey Rowe. Again, Priory came back and it was four a piece. The referee blew the final whistle and the game went straight to a penalty shootout which Wildern lost 2-3. There’s still the league lads!!
