A group of Year 7 Cottesloe students; Emily, Chloe, Sanchia & Sinead, have formed a small task force designated to clearing up litter around Stewkley, the village they live in.
It all started with them being disgusted by the littering they saw at the village Rec. They agreed to work together to clear the rubbish, which in addition to being an eyesore, can pose a danger to wildlife. In their quest they have collected and filled bags with; plastic bottles, cans, packets, discarded toys and other general waste.
They are taking so much pride in the work they have done and hope to inspire others to take more care of the beautiful village that they love and respect. Well done for making a difference and making Stewkley a better environment to live in.
It’s important that we all take responsibility to look after our local environment and ensure litter is disposed of correctly; either use bins provided, or take your rubbish home with you.Read More

Year 7 Residential Trip
25th September 2019
Year 7 Residential Trip is going well. We’ve had a hike to camp, then Archery, Climbing, Bushcraft, Pioneering and Paracord bracelet making! Group 2 enjoyed a game of Liars Yarn before dinner on Tuesday afternoon, and in the evening we all relaxed with a hot chocolate around the campfire! This morning (Wednesday 25th September) we are preparing for a climbing session. Lots of cooperation is required for this activity, as well as responsibility and empathy as students work in pairs.
Another activity taking place this morning is 'Who can build a catapult which fires the furthest?' this is proving to be a successful team challenge, requiring collaboration and cooperation from all involved.

English Literature Ambassadors
15th July 2019
My name is Rebecca Putt, I am in Year 11 and currently taking my GCSEs. Along with a group of fellow students I took my GCSE in English Literature when I was in Year 10, so Mrs Webber asked if we would get involved in mentoring our peers, as we had exam experience and were able to advise them on revision techniques that helped us, and how to deal with stress as the exam approached. We had one-to-one and small group sessions, and I had to learn different books to the ones I had studied, going over the plots and giving unique ideas for answers, using tips I had learned from Mr Matcham. I found it interesting and enjoyed the experience, and I was pleased to have the opportunity to help as I would like to go into teaching. Mrs Webber added, "These Year 11 students have been amazing in the Intervention sessions. They have really helped other Year 11 students because they have recently been through the examination process themselves and know what works. They were also so focused in these sessions and shared their excellent notes to great effect."Read More
