  • 100th Anniversary of the Great War

    Published 14/11/18

    This Sunday marks the hundredth anniversary of the ending of the Great War on:

    11th November 1918

    As always at Prospect, we have spent the week thinking about what Remembrance means to us in the twenty first century and the continuing value of honouring the lives of all men and women who were killed in the many conflicts of the twentieth century.

    On Friday, as is customary, we will be holding a short ceremony and a two minutes silence at 11 o'clock at our own war memorial:

    ‘The Prospect 1000'

    All students are welcome to join us and share this time for quiet reflection.

    Mr D. Ridgus (History Teacher)

  • Operation Christmas Child 2018

    Published 14/11/18

    This year’s Shoebox Appeal has now launched! This is a great opportunity to be involved in making a significant difference to a disadvantaged child’s life at Christmas time. This has been hugely successful in the past and I am always extremely proud of the involvement that young people like to have in causes such as this. If you or any students would like to take part please come along to pick up a leaflet from me in The Bridge which gives all the instructions you will need - wrap a shoe box and fill it with a few inexpensive small gifts. Please then drop completed shoeboxes into me by Tuesday 13th November. I can offer a collection service within school if this is helpful!

    Please check out the website for more information;

    Samaritan's Purse - What We Do - Operation Christmas Child

    Thank you to all those that have already dropped in completed shoeboxes!

    You may consider doing one shoebox as a tutor group which makes it a lot easier for more people to be involved.

    Please spread the word with students! Posters are up around school and you can also collect a leaflet from the main reception as well as from me. Tutors might like to share some of the many resources of information that are available on the website too, including videos.

    I have lots of empty shoeboxes waiting to be wrapped and filled.

    The more shoeboxes, the merrier!

  • Year 7 Ufton Court Adventure

    Published 09/10/18

    From 10th-14th September Miss Ralston, Mrs Vacy‐Ash, Year 7 Tutors and students had a wonderful 􀆟time teambuilding at Ufton Court.

    Despite only having been at Prospect for 3 days, students were asked to take themselves out of their comfort zones, leave mobile phones at home and take part in various activities designed to help them get to know each other, work as teams and develop their confidence.

    We had lots of fun swinging across obstacle courses in the woods, making survival bracelets, learning circus skills, building campfires and making hot chocolate, before spending the night sleeping in the (haunted) Tudor manor house.

    All the Prospect Staff who attended Ufton Court were very impressed by our students who were positive and tried everything – including all the vegetables at dinner!
