    I love sport, especially hockey, and I'd be honoured to see my name in the Celebration and Awards Evening programme as winner of the PE prize of the year. I will choose PE at GCSE and am going to aim for that top grade! -Matilda (Year 8)

    There is never a dull moment in school; there is something for everyone! During Balance Week, I was one of the first girls to sign up for powerlifting which certainly isn’t one of my usual hobbies! We’ve learned that it’s not just for body builders. It’s good for the heart and lungs and helps build endurance. It’s also meant to give you real strength of mind, if you can lift that heavy bar then you can handle anything that comes your way.

    I was a bit nervous when I started in Year 7 but I quickly made friends and realised everyone is really supportive. Our residential to Lakeside was a great experience and helped us all bond.

    I like to stay active and love swimming and water polo. There are many activities on offer and I definitely recommend getting involved as you have fun and make friends.
