Back from a half term break, and very busy with concerts everywhere. But a chance today for the pupils to do something different: a Dance Class in which they could really let off steam! Short video below shows how some of our youngest pupils got on.
Some of the Upper Sixth organised a flash dance mob event at morning break time today to mark V-Day and to encourage awareness amongst pupils of the international campaign ‘One Billion Rising’. This event coincided with similar events up and the down country which seek to promote positive relationships between men and women, and end violence against girls and women.

Today was the most important event of the year - or so I gathered from some of the boys, anyway. After several years of defeats at the hands of arch-rivals (and musical friends) at YMS, it was our turn to win the annual football match - and win we did, by the emphatic score of 5-1. We also won the sideline entertainment, courtesy of members of the Percussion department. Well done to Mr Willimott, all the boys who played, and everyone who helped or supported.
