Congratulations to our Young Enterprise team for their success at the Suffolk Awards.
Thanks to three of our local parliamentary candidates from the Labour, Green and Conservative parties who delivered addresses and answered questions from students in this morning's assembly. This proved to give an excellent background in preparing students to vote in our forthcoming Mock Election after half term. Watch this space for the results!

Runner Up Award, presented by Ransomes Jacobsen Ltd. and Social Innovation Award presented by The East of England
Twenty four schools and colleges entered the competition initially. After trading since September and submission of company reports and accounts, eight finalists were selected to attend the Awards Celebration at the University of Suffolk. Following trade stand interviews and company presentations to an audience of around 200 people, our team really impressed the audience and judges, receiving rapturous applause during the evening.
Mrs Clarke said " We were the smallest team and this was the first time our school has taken part so we are especially proud of our achievement and I am so pleased for the company because they have been so committed and used their entrepreneurial skills to an outstanding effect. Mr Brown's support as the Business Adviser has been excellent and very much appreciated by everyone involved."
Pat Trimmer, Suffolk's Manager for Young Enterprise said " I am very proud of you, seeing how your team has developed and so much hard work put into achieving the award. Well done!

Macmillan Cancer Support praised our students in an assembly following their recent ‘House’ charity fundraising day organised by Blyth House.
Helen Whitbread from Macmillan addressed the whole school to receive the funds with thanks and explain how the money raised (£174.26) would help twelve recently diagnosed cancer patients receive the initial support they need from Macmillan nurses. Helen outlined how there are more than 200 types of cancer prevalent in the UK each with their own symptoms and treatments, stressing the need for funding from events to allow the charity to provide practical, medical and financial support and to push for better cancer care.
Well done to everyone for supporting the charity event and look out for the next charity House event later this term!
