Year 11 only have a few days left to prepare for their second Mathematics Paper on Thursday 11th June. The Mathematics team have prepared resources to support the pupils in the calculator paper and are available Tuesday until 1pm, all day Wednesday and Thursday. All pupils should spend their free periods making the most of this opportunity and should report to S18 where a member of the team will be on hand to help.

The Maths Team

On Sunday 31 May Cornwall won the County Championship Final after beating Lancashire 18-13 at Twickenham.

It's third time lucky for Graham Dawe's men, who were beaten by Lancashire in the last two finals. After three attempts Cornwall have finally got their hands on the Bill Beaumont Cup at Twickenham.

Mr Matt Shepherd, a Behaviour Support Worker at Poltair, was named 'Man of the Match', Matt scored 15 of Cornwall's points, including bagging both of their tries; Cornwall tries: Shepherd (2); Con: Shepherd: Pens: Shepherd, Searle

Well done and congratulations!

England Counties Call up

Matt was also selected to play for England Counties, in their tour of Romania, along with Ben Hilton and Craig Williams (also from the Cornwall team). Matt travelled to meet up with the squad right after the County Championship Final at Twickenham last Sunday.

Mrs Hearn - Raising money for Hemihelp

On Saturday 31 May, our School Counsellor Mrs Abi Hearn, took part in the annual 'South Coast Roll' at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit near Chichester. This is a fun day organised for anyone on wheels, be it scooters, skateboards, roller blades or roller skates to skate around the 2.4 miles of the race track.

Abi, who is part of a roller derby team, decided with another team member, to skate around the track, not once, not twice but eleven times! Making it a marathon (26.4 miles in total)!

This was to raise money for 'Hemihelp', a charity which offers support and advice to parents of children who have been diagnosed with hemiplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, a condition which affects 1 in 1,000 children.

The day was very wet and there were some very slippery moments but the girls completed it in 3 hours and 40 minutes!

If you would like to donate to 'Hemihelp' via Abi's JustGiving page the website is https://www.justgiving.com/Emma-Babcock/
