Year 9 students have completed their first bronze Duke of Edinburgh expedition today. Lots of fun was had by all, not sure about the camp craft cooking though!

We’re sure that all our students will sleep well tonight as they have walked over 15k. Thank you to all our staff who have enjoyed the day with out trekkers.

We are incredibly proud of all our students who took part in our SWR Debating League 2021 on Tuesday 6th July.

Their response to the subject of Bitcoin and Crypto-currency was fantastic. In their team, they discussed the issue from an environmental, social and economical perspective with highly convincing arguments.

In the final round, two teams (in 8S and 8W) argued against the ‘Space Race’ to Mars and discussed the risks and opportunities on whether we should commercialise space travel. They spoke with passion about the dangers and ethical issues on this and were articulate and passionate with their opinions. 

These students are a real credit to SWR and we are very proud of their talents. We are all really looking forward to next year’s SWR Debating League!

Our Headteacher, Mr. Bell, was delighted to take afternoon tea and cakes with Year 9 students who spent their well earned house points on this amazing award! A very enjoyable afternoon was had by all, we’re not sure where all those cakes went though?

This term we have been very lucky to have a Welsh Rugby player teaching our key stage 3 girls in school. Kelsey is flying to France next week with the Welsh team to compete in the six nations.

Kelsey Jones has really inspired some of our girls to take up the sport which is amazing. She also took one of our student’s rugby which the whole Welsh rugby team signed.

We are sure that all of our students want to wish Kelsey and her teammates the best of luck in the forthcoming Six Nations!
