Spring Sporting Success

With the return to face-to-face teaching for all students in March, we had just enough time before the end of the term to complete all the girls house matches in Years 7-11.  With every female student playing at least one match there were some hard-fought games and some very tight wins.
Carlisle almost managed a clean sweep, taking 1st place in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10.  However, the Year 11 results could not have been more different, with Carlisle […]

The Art of a Good Speech

Many extra-curricular school activities have, unfortunately, ceased over the last year.  However, one of the few that has gone ahead has seen two of our teams achieve great success – our Debating and Public Speaking Teams.  Both teams, consisting of Year 11 students, have made excellent progress against some very stiff opposition.
The Debating Team have made it to the National Semi-Finals, and the Public Speaking Team made it to the Regional Finals.  We are very proud of all the […]

Supporting Everyone in Difficult Times

The new year and the new term may not have started in the way we would all have hoped. But just as there are signs of hope in nature – the first snowdrops have already been spotted – so there are signs that as we journey through 2021 it will bring renewed hope with it.  Whilst we wait for better news, we are supporting members of our community – be they staff or students – in a variety of […]

Mr Williams wins Top Award in Teaching Oscars

Over the past few weeks a small group of staff have been having whispered conversations, holding closed door meetings and sending highly confidential emails, all to ensure that Mr Williams had no idea, when he joined The One Show live on BBC One on Wednesday evening, whether that was as the overall winner or a runner-up.
So when Alex Jones revealed, through a series of clues, who the winner of the Headteacher of the Year in a Secondary School was, […]

Jumping with Style

Before Lockdown 2.0 the School’s Equestrian Team took part in a National Schools Equestrian Association Jumping with Style competition, held at Northallerton Equestrian Centre.
The competition, consisting of showjumping and cross-country fences, saw riders judged not only on their time and number of faults, but also their jumping style.  With six riders competing, including Daisy, who has just joined Malton School and is a newcomer to the team, expectations were running high.  The team put in some great performances – […]
