This week our unsqueamish Year 12 Biology students dissected a sheep head. During the A level Biology course students learn about role of the nervous system in relation to homoeostasis, this hands on experience allowed them to identify key anatomical structures.

Dear parents and carers,
We can all do with a night out and going back to the good old Skool days!
Come and join us going back in time while raising money for the school.
Tickets are now on sale for the Old Skool disco. Invite your friends and buy your tickets. For this evening only, school uniform is optional.
We are looking forward to see you on the 2nd of February 2019.
Please note that on Monday 26th November there is an all-day rehearsal for the school play. Students involved across the year groups will be needed P1-6. They will attend morning registration as usual. A cast list will be displayed in the staff room and students will be made aware that they need to catch up on any work missed. And! The school play is on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th November at 6pm in the Drama Studios. Please do come along and show your support for another fantastic cast of young talent! Tickets will be sold in the Drama Office and in the LRC for £1 with all proceeds going to charity.
Thanks for you support and understanding! Ali and Team Drama 🙂
The Year 8 council met on Wednesday 21st November 2018 to share the issues they feel are most important to Year 8 as well as their opinions on uniform and rewards. They also received their badges.
Their notes have been minuted and will be shared at the next student council meeting later this month.
The Year 7 Council met today to share their opinions on a range of topics including uniform, rewards, and other issues of concern for them. They made notes which will be passed on to the student council for discussion at their meeting next week.
Superzones are an area of 400m radius around secondary schools in which action is taken to protect young people’s health and encourage healthy behaviours through targeted intervention. Chace have been chosen to be a pilot school for this initiative.
The student council welcomed Ailbhe and Marghe from the Enfield Public Health department and Mr. Bruton, the Headteacher for a working lunch this week to discuss this issue. The student council shared their priorities and gave valuable feedback about ways in which the initiative could be implemented.
The top deck of a purple bus was transformed into a mobile showroom stocking over 1000 books. Year 7’s had the opportunity to visit the bus and were able to place an order for the books they wanted to purchase. It was a fun day that sparked conversations around re-creating and modernising a culture of reading. Thank you to all the Year 7’s for their perfect behaviour and the staff from Browns books for Students who travelled such a long way to be with us!
At the end of the summer term, the student council arranged for a non-uniform day. The money was donated to the Ben Kinsella Trust. We raised £636. The money raised has allowed the trust to provide three more anti-knife workshops which will educate 90 more young people about the dangers of carrying a knife.
The next non-uniform day will be at the end of this term and the student council will be asking the student body which charity we should support next.
We took 26 KS3 pupils to a VIP tour of the potters bar campus, there was a real personal touch as we met two 3rd year Vets who were inspiring and we all learnt loads including Mr. Levi and I!
We have been building this relationship and we will continue to foster this to give the best opportunities to our students at all abilities.
Thanks to all the staff who made this happen, especially Dr. Grace Macintosh and Stuart Patterson who have helped develop the programme with Chace.
The Year 12 A-Level Product Design & Textiles students enjoyed a succesful trip to the Wellcome Collection and V&A to see how design impacts on health, and how it has developed through the ages.
