We have been staging our first Activities Week since 2019 and it has been great to see students participating in a range of activities. Trips have gone out to museums, Portsmouth Docks, dry slope skiing, watersports and more. Activities in school included media experts, local businesses, drama, Duke of Edinburgh and various sports. Most students have had a great deal of fun but have also put themselves out of their comfort zone. As we say to all parents visiting the school, what goes on outside of the classroom is as vital to our vision of education as what happens in the conventional lesson.

Celebrating British Science Week
Happy British Science Week! This week, students across Years 7, 8 and 9 have been going mad for all things science. This year's theme is growth, whether that be growing their own spaghetti and marshmallow towers, learning about how the engineering industry grew by building model planes, or growing their own terrarium plants. We really have grown our love of science this week.

Ex-Ashcombe Greg Cackett and team mates in GB's four-man bobsleigh finish an impressive sixth at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games
Team GB's four-man bobsleigh consisting of ex-Ashcombe student, Greg Cackett, and his teammates Brad Hall, Nick Gleeson and Taylor Lawrence finished an impressive sixth at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games. This was a fantastic result as they are self-funded, due to the loss of funding on their road to the Olympics. They produced four consistent runs to finish just seven-tenths of a second outside the medal places with a combined time of 3:55.72.
