Enterprise Trade Fair
– A massive well done to our Year 10 and 11 Enterprise teams who attended the Young Enterprise Trade Fair at The Trafford Centre on the 12th February. They produced some wonderful products and demonstrated excellent customer service skills when dealing with members of the public. In addition, their trade stands were attractive and really showed off their products well. They were a credit to the school and made a positive impression with the organisers of the event who commented on their helpful and pleasant attitudes.
Food Bank Collection
– Before Christmas, students in Years 8 and 9 arranged to collect donations for Rochdale Foodbank. Thanks to kind donations from staff, students and parents/carers, we were able to donate 124kg of food. Unfortunately, the Foodbank’s premises were flooded during the holidays, losing a large amount of stock. The students reorganised the collection in January and were able to donate more food as well as raising £50 for the charity. Many thanks to all students, parents/carers and staff who donated items.
Years 7 and 8 Swimming

Thanks to Mrs Tosh for all her hard work and training with the team!
