Carnegie Celebration with St Bede’s School

15 Coleridge students from years 7 to 9 were invited to join St Bede’s reading club today to celebrate the awarding of the Carnegie Prize for Literature 2018. Results were announced at 1.15pm via a live link-up to the ceremony in London.

The winning book is Geraldine McCaughrean’s novel Where the World Ends. The announcement was greeted with groans from all of the students at the event -they had been hoping for The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas or After the Fire by Will Hill. The students spent the morning arguing about the quality of the novels and competing to answer quiz questions.

Ms Varney attended the event and she said the following: “I was very proud of our students for reading so many of the novels on the shortlist (there were 8) and for holding their own in negotiations with students from other schools over what should win. We ended the event by sharing in a large quantity of celebration cake.”

Each school sent 2 teams of 4 pupils to the event which was extremely lively and exciting! Mr Patterson, Headteacher said ‘I am delighted that the pupils had so much fun today. And the Quiz winners were the ACE Team from Queen Edith Primary! Well done to them! But well done to all of the pupils that took part! The event was about having fun, and we all had fun!’

CAST Film

Thanks to all the staff and students who took part in the filming of our new CAST video – Gigi, Ethan and Anna from Year 10, along with Luke, Roisin and Nanyo from Year 12 – as well as everyone else who was filmed around the college, during break and in lessons.

We are now in the process of putting together two versions of the video – one to take out to other secondary schools to show them all about CAST and another one with all the interviews in, to be shown at our Open Days in October.

We’ll also be featuring individual interviews over Social Media over the coming weeks – as some of the things both students, and external companies, said about CAST were not just informative, but also really singing the praises of the college – so it’s definitely a place for you all to be proud of!

Some of the praise included comments about our facilities – including ‘It’s the only secondary academy I am aware of that has a tissue culture lab, so it’s really amazing. The kind of same level of facilities you would find in a University research lab for instance’ (Araminta Ledger, Director of Campus Development, Cambridge University Health Partners).

Comments from students included – ‘Teachers are very supportive.. outside of college they also care if you are happy and that’s really important to me that they are there for me whenever’ (Roisin, Year 12) as well as ‘I am surrounded by a lot of people who are very clever. It really inspires me to learn lots and become as academic as I can be’ (Anna, Year 10).

CAST Year 12 Visit Anglia Ruskin for Introduction to University Research Skills

This week, a group of Year 12 students visited Anglia Ruskin University to take part in two workshops to help them develop the skills required for their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) – which gives them the transferable skills they need for either University or the world of work.

During their visit, students learnt about information searching and references and went on to learn about academic writing and critical thinking.

Ruth McKenzie, EPQ and Transition Co-ordinator, said: “The students enjoyed the experience and said they found it really interesting and helpful learning the steps for planning an essay.”
