Good Afternoon,

This week has seen two of our students shortlisted for the prestigious Hampshire Cultural Trust Keats poetry competition, the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Winchester City Museum at the end of the month. I wish both Gracie Sear-Jarvis and Mya Drennen the best of luck, we are very proud of you - well done!

The Year 11 Parents Information Evening on Thursday was well attended and hopefully helped parents and carers to gain an insight into the year ahead and how best to support year 11 at home with their preparations. The presentation can be found here.

There is a Year 10 Parents Information Evening next Thursday which will include information about work experience for year 10, we look forward to seeing year 10 parents then.

Students are making good use of the homework support available in the library after school until 3.45pm Monday to Thursday, and I would just like to remind parents that computers are available before school, at break times and after school in the library to complete homework. EPraise should now be showing all homework set which will help to support students in managing their time, parents can login to view details too - any problems please email the office and we will help you get EPraise up and running.

Just a reminder that we have Open Evening on Tuesday so we will close at 12.40pm.

Enjoy the sunshine!

Mrs Pearce

Headteacher

Sports News - Mr Gibson

On Tuesday the Vyne hosted a Year 8 District football tournament which attracted some of the best footballing talent from around Basingstoke. In a very high standard competition the Vyne had 3 competitive teams which outlines their strength in depth. The A team started a little nervously but finished strongly in the first game to draw with a good Costello team 1-1. They then went on to win their next two games against the Hurst and Aldworth to reach the final against their nemesis team Brighton Hill. Despite playing fine football and dominating proceedings it was Brighton Hill who took the win 1-0 in the final. Brilliant performances from all with Harvey H taking player of the tournament for the A’s. The B team made a strong start playing in the A League with a confident win against Cranbourne but found it more difficult against Bishop Challoner and Brighton Hill. They eventually finished 5th. The B team player of the tournament was Vinnie H. The C team playing in the B league also performed heroically with 2 wins from their first two games. A draw and a loss in their last two games saw them finish 3rd in their league overall. The C teams player of the tournament was Jamie Mc. A great start to the football season with a lot of success to look forward to.

After school club information can be found at the end of this article.

Peace Garden - Mrs Edwards

You may have seen on our school facebook page that our wonderful wooden gazebo has been installed following the tremendous efforts of volunteers from Fujitsu, staff and family members to build a concrete base.

This is a major step forward in bringing the students’ garden design to life.  There is still a long way to go before completion and no doubt there will be further opportunities for volunteers to help transform the area.  Watch this space!
