Sixth form induction day success

Last Monday year 11 students came back to Townsend to take part in their Sixth form induction day, hosted by Miss Gibbons and Mrs Buckland.  The day was a great success, with students carrying out enterprise style activities, and answering debates on "What makes a good sixth form student?"

We hope you all enjoyed the day and are looking forward to seeing you all again in September, in the meantime, have a lovely summer and good luck on results day!

Year 6 induction evening

A big welcome to all of our year 6 students who are joining Townsend next year!  We had the pleasure of meeting you all last Thursday evening, where form tutors met with their tutor groups, as well as meeting the new head of year 7 for next year, Miss Reynolds.  We can't wait for you to join us in September, but for now have a lovely summer and we'll see you all in your purple blazers soon!

Year 7 trip to Hatfield House

Yesterday Year 7 were all treated to a visit to Hatfield house to learn more about the Tudor period and ruling.  Students walked round the oak tree where Queen Elizabeth I was told she would become queen, as well as hearing all about the Tudor times from none other than Catherine Parr and Henry VIII themselves, whilst sitting in the old palace at the grounds!

Year 11 NRA and school Prom

A big congratulations to all of our year 11 students for completing their exams this week!  Well done for working so hard and we're sure the results will pay off in Summer!!

The NRA ceremony on Wednesday was fantastic, with so many achievements celebrated.  Lots of lovely words were spoken about the students in year 11 which we are all very proud of!

The Prom followed yesterday evening with so many of you in smart suits and beautiful dresses!  We hope you all had fun, especially on that packed dance floor!

Details of how to purchase photos from the night will be available on here soon!

Author Richard Mayers visits Townsend



Local author Richard Mayers visited Townsend on Wednesday to deliver a creative workshop to some students in years 7 and 8 who have been working particularly well in English this term.

Students were introduced to Richard's two books, Spikez and Making Trakz, written about cyborgs made from animals, and had a presentation/discussion about animal testing and rights of animals.  They were then asked to create their own cyborgs, with designs being presented at the end of the session.

Students thoroughly enjoyed creating their own concepts and designs throughout the afternoon and we thank Richard for his time visiting us!
