A-Level Photography


A big Thank you to the PFA for funding a new set of studio lighting primarily for our A-level photography students. It has replaced some old equipment that was partly broken and clumsy to use. The new equipment has been a pleasure to teach with, and the students are already getting to grips with it, and enjoying the variety and quality of lighting effects they can now achieve. It really has enhanced the quality of photos coming out of the studio, and it is easy and safe to use. The Year 12’s are currently working on a portrait project and are experimenting with different light set ups to achieve a range of dramatic lighting effects inspired by the great portrait photographers of the 1950’s, and theirglamourous film star shots.

The lighting is also very portable so will be able to be used for other purposes around the school, and for outside shoots.

Thank you PFA!

Ms Turton

 


Cross Country


On Saturday 12th the Yr 7/8 girls cross country team took part in the Regional final of English Schools Cup at Bedford. There were 15 schools at the event with each school having been first or second in their respective County championships.

The standard of the competition was extremely high but the girls acquitted themselves extremely well. Katie Mannix led the Sponne team finishing in an excellent 6th position - only 10 seconds behind the winner. The next counter for Sponne was Yr 7 runner Emily Hinton, a short way behind in 9th position. Georgia Corcoran finished in 29th position with the remaining runners being Cara Mannix, Caitlin Donohue and Mia Cowley.

Overall the team finished in 5th position on the day - an outstanding performance as this competition took in the whole of the East Midlands and East Anglia.

Well done indeed !!!
