Olympic trip to Germany:

In September students from Years 8 and 10 along with Mr Horton, Mr Pike and Miss Stride embarked on an Olympic style sporting extravaganza in Kornwesthiem to be part of their Partner Schools Olympic games. This is something we have been involved in twice before both in Germany and here in Southampton.

The athletes took part in a wide range of sports, our very own Maddie Cooper mentioned later in my Blog was one of them.

Four wonderful days were had by all and it was yet again a further example of our strong international links and a partnership we have enjoyed for many years. Watch out for a full account of the whole trip in the Christmas newsletter.



The Battle of the Somme

Our accelerated Year 11 History GCSE students have been working on a project at Royal Victoria Country Park in conjunction with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Royal British Legion.  This is part of the national 'Every Man Remembered' project to commemorate the centenary of The Battle of The Somme.  The former hospital at Royal Victoria Country Park was used throughout the duration of the Battle to treat casualties from the front line who were sent from France via rail and sea.  Sadly, there are over 150 graves of men who lost their lives despite surviving the journey back from France and these men have never been officially recognised as casualties of the Battle of The Somme.  Our students have been working with local historians to identify more about the men and prove that they were veterans of The Somme.  They have uncovered some fascinating stories about the men from as far away as Australia and these will be published in the new year so that future generations and potentially relatives of the men will have a more accurate picture of the soldiers buried in the cemetery at Royal Victoria Country Park.



BBC Proms

During the summer term the BBC Proms Education Team contacted Mrs Simmons after submitting a dance to their website for the BBC 10 Pieces project. The BBC invited the dancers to perform as part of the BBC Ten Pieces Prom at the Royal Albert Hall in July. 14 dancers worked alongside choreographer Denni Sayers to create a performance to Shostakovich's Symphony No.10 (2nd movement).

The dancers stayed in London accompanied by Mrs Simmons and Miss Wyatt from 21st - 24th July rehearsing the performance as well as seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and going backstage! They performed at The Royal Albert Hall on 23rd and 24th July with presenters Naomi Wilkinson, Lemn Sissay and Dion Dublin.

It was the most amazing experience for these talented students and something they and we will never forget.

The Telegraph commented on their performance 'An expressive, disciplined bunch of dancers from Wildern School in Southampton were great...'
