He goes to Bolzano, Italy in August to represent England in the Mediterranean Cup!
An outstanding achievement.
Well done Milo!
Investigating as true detectives all of Year 7 discovered the geographical delights of Hengistbury Head yesterday. The field work they were doing took them from coast, to heathland to harbour side as they recorded evidence of longshore drift, human impact, ecosystem change and many other aspects of geographical note on this fascinating headland. The children were supported by nine wonderful parents, whose enthusiasm and care was invaluable. Thank you to everyone for a fantastic day out!
One of our Year 7 pupils has been working hard over the last six years to achieve one of the most difficult challenges in Taekwondo... A black belt!
Ben Scott has had to: travel backwards and forwards to Bristol numerous times to the TAGB Training Centre; write a 200 word essay; and learn the moves and history of Taekwondo in Korean! Finally there was the grading itself which involved presenting the moves, patterns and sparring in front of a panel of TAGB officials. A huge congratulations to Ben for all his hard work and dedication over the years. Well done on an amazing achievement.
Head of Year 7 & 8
Whilst many of us will have been sitting back and eating numerous delicious easter eggs this holiday, one individual was busy competing in Plymouth at a prestigious diving competition. After a nail-biting 5 days of competition, Milo is now a double British Junior Elite Diving Champion! He was crowned 3m Synchro Champion and 7m Platform Champion. Milo also took a bronze medal in the 1m board competition. If that wasn't enough, he and his diving partner also gained silver in the platform synchro event!!
Milo was the only boy to make every final and consequently, was the highest point scorer of the competition, which means that he may well get selected to represent England at the Junior European Championships in Italy in August.
A massive congratulations to Milo for all his hard work and dedication.
The Grand Finale of the Spring Term was held today, a whole school marathon in support of UNICEF and Prostate Cancer UK!

Well done CMS and good luck to Nick!
Have a great Easter!
After a 3 hour journey and the satnav taking us past Wembley, we arrived at a packed Lea Valley athletics stadium. Over 3,000 competitors were already warming up, getting into the zone and preparing to race. We started with team relays and both the boys and girls teams performed admirably, finishing 6th and 2nd in their heat respectively! Well done!
As the morning gave way to the afternoon, it was time for the individual races! Hundreds of competitors filed into the race pens to take their places on the multitude of rowers in the centre of the arena. First up was the Year 8 girls. 3 minutes of intense, hard work saw Charlotte and Tilly finishing strongly in their heat. The Year 7 boys cam next and both Tom and Danny performed admirably against some of the largest year 7 boys I have ever seen! Last up was Amy, our Year 7 girl. Against tough opposition, she pushed herself to her limit and did herself proud. The day really was a fantastic experience for our young athletes and they should all be proud of their achievements. A special well done to Charlotte and Danny who gained 2nd places within the East Dorset squad for their age groups. A big thank you also to the parents who came all that way to support, not only their only children, but everyone who competed for the East Dorset team.
The internet is a wonderful tool, full of exciting web sites and applications for us to use. As we become regular users of technology it is important that we understand the risks and dangers that we might face.
Today we learnt about 4 areas of online safety and discussed them as tutor groups with our tutors. It was great to hear so many interesting discussions between the children and staff, during lessons and in the playground at break.
If you would like the see any of the presentations that we used today with the children, just click below to download them.
Our staff have been spotted in a number of places and positions recently showing how cool (and important) it is to be in a habit of reading.
Can you read in an even more obscure (and safe) place or position? Submit your photographs to email@example.com for a chance to win our competition by Friday 31st March.
