On Monday 11th March, 63 x students from across Year 7 & 8 attended a Rugby development day at Towcester rugby club. The girls were involved in 4 x coaching sessions led by RFU coaches, that focused on different skills and techniques from the game. The girls got stuck in, worked hard and most importantly had fun! In the afternoon, they split into 2 x games (both contact) and played really well against each other, with lots of tries being scored. 

Towcester RFC have a thriving girls sector with a very successful U15 squad and a great U13's squad. If your daughter would like to get involved in Girls rugby, the U13's train on a Monday evening from 6:30-8pm and the U15's train on a Thursday 6-7:30pm. Alternatively, please contact Mrs Appleby (PE) for further details.

For this year’s World Book Day form-groups took part in book-related activities during registration time.

We also held a World Book Day Quiz at lunchtime in the LRC. This was really well attended by students from Years 7, 8 and 9 who made up 14 teams.

Our winning team came from Years 8 and 9 and was made up of Georgia Fowler, Finley Simpson, Freya Savage and Lucy King. They scored 15 points out of a possible 20.


Thanks to all students who took part, and thanks also to Millie Rees from Year 12 who was our question master.

The University of Leicester be running a range of medicine specific events throughout April 2019 to help both teachers and students find out what they really need to train to become a doctor and study medicine at university.

Teachers’ Medicine Careers Evening - Thursday 4th April 2019, 4-6pm, University of Leicester

The medical profession is changing, and so are the qualities, skills and knowledge required by medical and healthcare students. This free event is aimed at helping equip teachers and careers advisers with the knowledge to support students, especially those from a disadvantaged background aspire to study medicine at university. From research, many students decide that they don’t have what it takes to study medicine before they start their post-16 studies, so we especially want teachers working with younger year groups to attend, so the right advice is given early on.

Year 10 and Year 11 Medicine Calling - Thursday 11th April, 5:30-8:30pm, University of Leicester

An evening for students in Year 10 and Year 11 and their parents, carers or teachers to find out more about what is needed to study medicine, with a spotlight on psychiatry and mental health careers. This evening will give students the opportunity to speak to current doctors, take part in a practical workshop as well as find out about all the support on offer from the University of Leicester. Refreshments are provided. Please pass on this information to any students who you feel would benefit from attending.
