On the 7th December Jeremy Gundle and Matthew Ward travelled to the olympic velodrome in London to participate in the British Rowing Indoor Championships. After winning both of his heats , Jeremy went on to finish with the silver medal in the 4 minute row ( covering 1164m and missing out on Gold by only 2m!) and bronze in the 500m row ( 1min 34s) again missing out on silver by 0.1 s and gold by 0.4s! Matthew competed valiantly,(despite a heavy cold) finishing a very creditable 26th in the 4minute row. An excellent achievement for both boys!

The Grand Union Training Partnership is offering a four week paid internship this summer starting 22nd June 2020 and finishing Friday 17th July 2020.
We are looking for undergraduates studying a STEM related degree that are interested in a career in teaching secondary Maths or Physics. We are working with 4 schools: Magdalen College School, Brackley; Sponne School, Towcester; Lord Grey Academy, Milton Keynes; Guilsborough School.
At Sponne we have a small stock of second hand uniform available but are in need of any donations. If your child is leaving in Year 11 or they have grown out of their uniform please would you consider donating any items to school.
Blazers, PE kit and ties are all welcome.Due to limited storage we presently have enough boys trousers and school shirts but would be grateful for any girls school skirts and trousers.
There is a green collection box in student services.

We have been asked by the local police to pass on a message to all parents and carers. Please do not park outside the Police Station in Towcester and leave your car even for a very short period of time. There are emergency vehicles coming and going from that site at all times and absolutely no parking is allowed. Parents are able to pull into the layby in front of the Police Station to drop off, providing you are purely dropping off and then moving on again immediately. You are kindly asked not to park and wait there.
We kindly ask you to refrain from parking on the zig zag markings by the pedestrian crossing outside of school or parking across our neighbours driveways.
