Member of staff attempts the Wimbleball Half Ironman

triathlonOn June 28th I will be taking part in the Wimbleball Half Ironman. This consists of a mile and a quarter swim in Wimbleball lake, a 56 mile bike around Exmoor and finishes with a half marathon. My training is going really well and I have entered a few races to prepare me for this event. I came third in The Big T long triathlon on 4th May and 2nd in the brutal Y Fenni – Blaenafon triathlon on 10th May.

I have decided to do it for the charity Scope and fund raising is going well, but if you would like to sponsor me then any donation would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Lysa Fairhurst

Making Room News

If you want to get creative, Making Room Art Club is open each Thursday 3- 4pm.

You can bring along your own projects, join in on group making projects, or get experimental with the heaps of junk we have available.

This is a good opportunity to flex your creativity with the help of a professional artist and all the advantages of a studio space. Mazy Bartlett welcomes all ages and abilities and is happy to share her extensive knowledge of art and craft practises.
This session is also available to people outside of school so if you have brothers/ sisters/ friends/ parents or carers that would enjoy an hour of messy fun, please bring them along.
Art Club commences the 2nd week of term and finishes on the last Thursday.

duckThe Making Room is asking for a donation of plastic toys – we are looking to replace the bottles on our spiral sculpture and thought plastic toys would make a great new piece of art. They need to be hollow and about the size of a rubber duck ideally, however we are not fussy, and the brighter the better. Please bring donations to the school reception, and thanks in advance.

Fare changes to Corsham 10 Bus Service


C10 fare change posterUpdate for parents/carers:
First are making changes to the fares and tickets available on Service 10, which is designed to bring them more into line with the fares and tickets available on our extensive commercial network.
While we will no longer offer specific 10 journey tickets for Service 10, our new day tickets for Service 10 will offer good value for money and are a viable alternative for the majority of customers.
We are currently planning some changes to our network in the Corsham area and hope that Service 10 will become more integrated into the network and therefore improve the overall service to our customers.

Faresaver currently operate a contracted trip from Gastard, Monks Lane through Neston on to the School. This contract still sells 10J tickets and they have no date expiry (within reason) so technically, if the student buys the Faresaver 10J ticket (and travel on the first morning with Faresaver), it will be valid for subsequent trips on First bus 10 (this is because the two contracts accept tickets over common points i.e. Neston), subject to capacity of the bus. A caveat to this is that it will only applies if there are no changes to the contractual arrangements on Corsham Town contract (i.e. it remains a contracted bus service).
