Weekly Message

Firstly a reminder that the school is closed on Monday 7 May because of the Bank Holiday weekend. Weather forecasts are good so we hope you are all able to enjoy it.

Next week, Year 9s are taking part in a trip to Marwell Zoo with the Geography department. Year 9s are also involved in a dance workshop in Eastleigh on Friday so it is a busy and action-packed week for some of them.

In sport, Year 9 boys and girls represented Cams Hill at the Hampshire Schools Track Knockout Competition on Monday 1 May. The girls were unfortunate after excellent performances, missing out on qualification to the next round by only 3 points. Year 7s compete next week on Tuesday 8 May.

Finally, three of our Year 11 pupils are taking part in a sponsored skydive to raise money in memory of one of their friends who sadly passed away. They have set up a GoFundMe page. If you would like to sponsor them, you will find the details at:
