Happy Chinese New Year to our Chinese students and their families. There are currently several students from the People's Republic of China studying a range of A level and vocational courses with us before they go on to UK universities. This year is the Year of the Dog.

Performing Arts students have started the year taking part in the Jane Austen 200 project, a partnership project between theatre group Wet Picnic and the Hampshire Cultural Trust funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project combines detailed research gleaned from access to historical sites and Austen experts with interpretation through live and mediated performance.

On Monday 26 February, A level Drama and Theatre Studies students perform Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange and Top Girls by Caryl Churchill as part of their examined performance.

On 16 and 17 March, students will work alongside Stagecoach, Liphook in a National Theatre Connections Project in a performance of newly commissioned play Dungeness in the Wessex Arts Theatre on campus.

Teams of Year 8 and 9s from Eggar's School and Amery Hill School worked with A level students recently to compete in the annual Junior Team Maths Challenge, designed to stretch more able students.

Congratulations to Expressions student Ben Tyler on being selected to represent Great Britain in tennis in the Special Olympic World Games in Abu Dhabi in March 2019.
