Students at the Newport Pagnell campus were treated to a thrilling musical performance on 11th July from Olney Brass Band as part of the Music Department's Friday Recital Series. We are very pleased that, from September, Olney Brass will rehearse at the Newport Pagnell campus on a Tuesday evening. The band are very kindly offering free large group brass tuition at its beginner band.
If you are interested in starting to play a brass instrument, why not go along to their free Evening Concert, at the Main Hall in Newport Pagnell on 17th July starting at 7:30pm, or if you can't make this event, then contact Mr Couldrick.

Some Year 13 students may recently have received an email from UCAS stating that the information that they put on their application form does not match the information that UCAS subsequently received from the exam boards.
This is nothing to worry about and is a result of the method used to list A level units that students have retaken, to improve on the grade they achieved when they took them in Year 12.
Students should simply respond to the email through the link attached and confirm that they are not taking an ‘extra’ AS level. The units they resat will automatically form part of their final grade for their A2 qualification. This will not affect their grades or their university offers in any way.
If you would like any further assistance please contact Sian Moulds (Head of Year 13) on 01908 210203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

In May the Science Department ran its first trip to Longrigg Outdoor Centre in the Yorkshire Dales. The idea was to focus on the science behind the activities to help strengthen some of our Year 9 students' interest in the subject.
On arrival, there was little time for settling into our dorms as we all embarked on a trek up the fell to see how plant diversity changed in different habitats such as lane verges, dry-stone walls and sheep-grazed moorland. Once the students had prepared and cleared away dinner we all retired to the lounge for a study session on healthy eating. Tuesday saw us zip-wiring from the top of a cliff and ghyll-scrambling as we studied the forces involved in tightening the ropes and pullying people up tricky rock faces.
