Since starting Kepier in September, Mia and Hannah have read 39 books between them.Their reading tastes are eclectic - memoirs, thrillers, dystopian and humour are genres the girls have enjoyed.
Miss Sood is extremely proud of the girls and their love of reading. 'A way to relax' is one reason Hannah reads regularly; Mia reads to 'learn about other people'.
Overall, KS3 pupils have read almost 7000 books since the start of the academic year.
The girls are pictured here with our Principal Mrs. Cooper and Miss Sood - well done!!!

Our Year 9 Artists visited Sunderland Winter Gardens recently to view the exhibition of drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and the wider collection of stunning Artworks in their permanent collection. This was a rare opportunity to see original Art by this best known of Renaissance Artists. After a talk by a museum specialist curator, learners engaged with the masters works, copying sketches on loan from the Queens collection and marveling at his inventions and advanced knowledge of human anatomy. Learners are currently working on 'The Human Form' in their art lessons, and the resulting work has been inspired by this once in a lifetime visit. Many thanks to Mr. Lightfoot for organising this!
