Year 7 Activity Day


Wise-Up Outdoor Activities Company      British Heart Foundation


Friday 25th September was the Year 7 Enterprise Day, where they worked in House groups throughout the day. One half of the day was spent learning essential first aid skills and the other half was spent challenging themselves to complete tasks as a team provided by the Wise-Up Outdoor Activities Company.


RES Year 7 Activitiy Day Sep 2015


The whole of Year 7 took part in the day. This year we were really lucky to have half mannequins for the students to practice their first aid skills on and learn some resuscitation techniques, these were kindly donated by the British Heart Foundation. The students also learnt how assess a situation and to put someone in the recovery position and practised on each other until they felt confident and could do it well.


RES Year 7 Activitiy Day Sep 2015


The second half of the day they worked as a team through a series of activities where they assessed themselves on their planning, motivation, team work and success at achieving the task. The tasks had names such a Chasm, Mindfield and Atomic Bomb, they tested the students abilities to work together but also and most importantly allowed them to get to know each other and themselves more.

It was great to see students stepping up to lead activities and show real enthusiasm to succeed, there was a lot of camaraderie and encouraging each other whilst also keeping the competitive edge.

Thanks to the staff who supported the students on the field and to Mr Everett, Mrs Hunt, Mrs Dryden and Miss Christmas who lead the first aid activities.

Year 11 Biology Field Trip


RES Year 11 Biology Field Trip 2015


Just one week after the return to school in autumn 15 students and two staff members embarked on a journey to Suffolk to carry out GCSE Biology fieldwork. They arrived to perfect weather and after a brief settling in period headed out to the fields behind the beautiful 17th century farmhouse of Flatford Mill where the students were introduced to sampling techniques in a fun, creative way.


RES Year 11 Biology Field Trip 2015


The scene was set for a perfect weekend of field work ecology marred only by a few short bursts of rain. Students donned wellies and took to the water to catch invertebrates (and the occasional stickleback), waded up streams, set mammal traps and netted invertebrates.

They also spotted bats, satellites and shooting stars. Students participated with enthusiasm and were complimented by on site staff on their knowledge and engagement throughout the weekend, returning in good spirits on Monday afternoon.

Betjeman Poetry Prize

Betjeman Poetry Prize


We are delighted to inform you that the following R E S students’ poetry entries have been shortlisted for the Betjeman Poetry Prize 2015:


The Asylum, by Jack Ford (Year 9)
The Beach, by Louise McGlennan (Year 8)
The Bomb Shelter by Remi Obasa (Year 9)


The competition required young poets aged 10-13 to write a poem based on the theme of 'Place'. This could be inspired by a personal experience they have had with a known place or be about an imagined place. All students in KS3 took part in the competition and showed superb team work, creativity and originality in the planning stages of their ideas and throughout the writing process. As a school, we value the importance literacy and take every opportunity to nurture and celebrate it with our students.


We congratulate each one of them for getting this far and wish them the best of luck for the next stage of the competition.
