The Adventure Starts Here 2009 Mini Sagas Competition was a huge success and we'd like to thank all pupils who participated as well as all the staff who organised the entries.
The news of their win was celebrated in assembly only last week and I managed to get a few of them together for a photo.
The £1000 is going to subsidise a drama workshop and theatre trip for KS4 students during our Enrichment week in the summer term.
Usually the girls would be in school off timetable doing activities that enrich their regular curriculum,
but this year because of this money we will be able to take them to the Globe theatre for the day and they will have an experience which they might otherwise not have had!

'We are very excited about having come 3rd place! We intend to buy some books for our library and bring in an author to speak to the students about careers in writing.'
