Volunteers Week – Celebrating our Senior Librarians

Our senior librarians; Matty, Zoe, Rowan, Monique, Beccy, Beth and Izzy all volunteer to organise and run the school library and support students using this facility. Matty was the first student to volunteer in this role, and has since built the team up to further their goal of maintaining the library space and supporting students.
The tasks our senior librarians undertake vary; some are focussed on the upkeep of the library itself: organising books, maintaining the careers information, keeping records and […]


The Year 9 Boys were crowned district football champions with a 2-0 win over a strong Eskdale side. Malton edged the early exchanges despite the absence of Ethan Oakes through injury.  Opportunities were limited, thanks to strong defending from both sides.  Josh Mann, in particular, impressed for Malton at the back.
After a series of chances created by the hold up play of Callum Moston, it was Malton who took a deserved lead through Will Hartley’s calm finish. The strong […]

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Review: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
By Kirsty Farrow
Our year 12 and 13 Literature classes, accompanied by Mrs Ward and Mrs Cass attended the live screening of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tenessee Williams, at Malton Palace Cinema. This adaptation was unique and interesting as the director had adopted a modern approach to this 1955 play, with its inclusion of props such as mobile phone and iPods.
I thought that this modern adaptation was very effective as it […]

The lack of a […]

Revolting Rhymes

Since Christmas all year 7s have been exploring a different Revolting Rhyme in their drama lessons. We have explored the themes and characters and looked at possible ways of developing them into a performance on stage. As we have drama lessons once a fortnight this has only given us three lessons to pull the plays together and devise our own version of Roald Dahl’s gruesome tales!
Students were asked to choose an option for this project from:
Technical (lighting, sound or […]
