2022 Badge V2

West Northamptonshire Council are looking for submissions for a new exhibition at Towcester Library scheduled for February 2022. The exhibition will run at Towcester Library for the whole of February, which is LGBTQ+ History Month.

LGBTQ+ History Month is an important time to reflect on what the queer community has gone through and a chance to celebrate where we are. For a smaller community like Towcester, the visibility and activity of the queer community still has a long way to go. We hope that this event can highlight the creativity of the LGBTQ+ community, making the members of it feel seen and giving them space to express themselves.

The theme is LGBTQ+ History and Pride. We welcome submissions from members or allies of the LGBTQ+ community.

We are happy to receive original work in any medium: painting, drawing, photography, textile, short story, poetry, etc. It is free to submit, and people will be able to retrieve their submissions after the exhibition ends.

Submissions to be sent to: towcester.libraryplus@westnorthants.gov.uk OR bring/send submissions to Towcester Library, The Forum, Towcester, NN12 6AD.

Due to safeguarding, submissions from under 18s will be automatically anonymised. Artists 18 years old and above should let us know if they wish to remain anonymous. Deadline for submissions is: 28/01/2022

What an absolute pleasure to have Assistant Referee Stuart Burt in this week. He gave an "inspirational" assembly to year 7 talking about his career, then hosted a Q&A session with students from years 8-12. He was bowled over by the student's questions and their manners.

The new science block extension is starting to take shape and is due for completion by December 2021. This will house 3 new classrooms, a faculty base and improved toilet facilities, allowing for much more space in the science department. This is a great investment for the school and will be hugely beneficial for both future and current students.

 See below for some designs on what the build will look like and remember to check back for updates as the project progresses.

Sponne School is very proud to announce that Thomas Judge (Yr 12 A level Music Student) has been successful in his  double bass audition for the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.  Huge congratulations - a tremendous achievement! On receiving the news Thomas said:

"I am completely honoured to accept my place into the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain in the Double Bass section! To say I am excited for what the next year or so has to offer would be an understatement. From performing live at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in summer to doing various concert tours of the UK and overseas, it’s safe to say the next two years are going to be extremely busy. I’m particularly looking forward to working with the incredible film composer Danny Elfman (whose work includes: Batman, Nightmare before Christmas and the Simpsons) and performing in the world premiere of his new work, which was written especially for the NYO

I applied for the NYO in April this year and was fortunate enough to get moved straight to the 2nd round of auditions. After months of preparation, I was finally invited to the Royal Academy of Music in which I had a weekend assessment, consisting of various creative workshops and as you can imagine A LOT of playing! A couple of weeks later I got an email confirming I had gotten the position. 

The NYO has an outstanding reputation of being the world’s leading orchestra for young people and thanks to the help of our phenomenal Chief Executive and Artistic Director, Sarah Alexandra OBE, the orchestra has become well linked with some of the greatest musical influencers and organisations in the industry, and has performed to many thousands of people as well as regularly performing for members of the Royal Family.

I am incredibly happy to have been given this amazing opportunity and I am very proud to get the chance to represent Sponne School on a National level."
