Ski Trip (continued) The typical day consisted of five hours’ skiing in our groups which included lunch, and then we would meet up with everyone to go back to the hotel to shower ready for dinner. At about eight o'clock we would set off on our evening activities which would last around an hour or two and then we would go back to the hotel and go to bed at around ten o'clock. As well as the skiing, we had evening activities such as ice skating and Pizza night, but the highlight for me and probably many other pupils was seeing Mr Pilling singing on karaoke night! Some of the other teachers also joined in singing and dancing to songs and I can safely say that I am scarred for life! Despite the pasta overload, I had a very enjoyable time and would certainly go again. The staff were all very relaxed and the skiing was great fun, which was for some people a once in a lifetime opportunity. On behalf of all my peers I want to thank all the staff who gave up their time to take us there, and all the Interski staff for making our week of skiing possible. By Tom Simpson, Year 10

BSKC Report A total of 36 students entered this year’s British Schools Karting Championship, which meant that 12 teams of three were racing at the local track of AKS Karting in Worcester. With only the top three teams going through, it was going to be very competitive and there were six or seven teams who had a realistic chance of going through. The racing got underway and everyone was fiercely racing to get the best results they could to try and get their team through. The top three teams were Jack Hughes, Jamie Broughton and Alex Calado ending up 1st; Sam Bennett, Tom Brittenden and Rob Latham ending up 2nd and Guy Wenham, Charlie Evans and Will Clark finishing 3rd. The top three teams then went on to race at the regional final in Milton Keynes at the Daytona track where they were put up against 27 other teams. The teams all did really well and tried their best but unfortunately none of them got through. The top team (Jack Hughes, Jamie Broughton and Alex Calado) managed to finish 7th overall finishing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 4th and 7th. The other two teams finished 15th and 17th overall. Well done to everyone who took part in the competition this year, and thank you to all the staff who helped out and came to cheer everyone on. By Guy Wenham, Year 11 Page 22
