Imaginative minds in Year 11 were selected to be published in the latest collection of short stories by Young Writers; Welcome to Wonderland.
Challenged to create a fictional world, the students pulled together stories based on the wondrous worlds they had created, all told within 100 words. A fantastic 10 of these stories were picked by Young Writers to be published alongside other young authors from the UK.With titles from our students ranging from 'A Dream of War' to the ominous 'Untitled', it seems there is something to meet the interests of all readers.
Yr8 Science focus week ran from 06-10th November.

All Yr8 got involved with visits to the local Lough’s Agency, Invista, fun chemistry workshops at lunchtime , rocket making, balancing act workshop and rat dissections. A ‘Bug’s Life’ microscopy session and Sports Science in the gym also was on offer.
