The White Cat – is written specially for our students by local author Stephen Plaice who is a dramatist working in opera, theatre and film. In the last decade he has become one of Britain's leading librettists and book writers for musical theatre. The play is set in Dallington, East Sussex and follows the story of Alice Lowle who is accused of witchcraft. It is based on a true story.

Pack Up Your Troubles – is set in Peacehaven and tells the story of Felix Powell who wrote the famous song of the title. It is set in the early days of Peacehaven when it was a shanty town, and if you are interested in local history and music hall you should find it fascinating.

Y9 rugby report

Y9 Rugby Team
On Wednesday 2nd march the Y9's went to Eastbourne to play the annual tournament. The first game was against Hailsham Community College. The team started hesitantly but grew in stature as the game went on. A well worked try was finished by a rampaging run from captain Freddy. The final score was 12-5 to Hailsham. The second game was against Bishop Bell. The first try was by Jem running rings around the opposition. The second try was by Cameron smashing through their biggest player and scoring in the corner. The final score was 12-12.

The final pool match was against Seaford Head. They were the strongest team in our pool. The forwards; Jake, Cameron, Dexter, Freddy and Josh stood up to the opposition through incredible tackling and powerful running. We narrowly lost 10-0. It was a brave and confident team performance. PCS finished third in our pool. So we went on to play for 5th place overall. The fourth game was against Eastbourne Academy. We scored straight from the opponents kick and Luke scored a scintillating try. The second try was scored by another great run by Jem. The final score was 12-10 to pcs. We came 5th overall.
A brilliant team performance! Written by Freddy

Quizzy Rascals

HTML5 Gallery by WOWSlider.com v5.2

The annual Student v Staff Maths quiz returned with it's usual mixture of excitement and tension as the teams battled to be top of the board. The staff team What's the Point won in the end with just 4 points in it, staff team Just Coz took second place and Y7 team Mad Maths Unicorn did amazingly well to get third place. Well done to everyone involved!

GREASE


Kyle and Danny are pulling on their leather jackets to star as Sonny and Doody in Seaford Musical Theatre Junior's production of GREASE. Although Kyle is better known as a footballer and Captain of the Year 10 team, Danny is taking drama as an option and hopes to become a actor - or a computer games tester! They are also taking part in a special fundraising performance to support CTLA - Community Transport and hope to raise £1000 for the charity.
Tickets are available for GREASE from www.ticketsource.co.uk/thebarntheatre

Y7 Rugby Tournament

Y7 Rugby Team
On Monday 31st March, the year 7 Rugby team came together for a tournament in Eastbourne. The team started the tournament with confidence and won 25-0 against Ratton School. After that, we faced Lewes Priory and lost a well fought match 15-10. In the last match of the group stage, we lost 15-5 against a very experienced Cavendish side.

In the 5th place play-off we dominated a strong Seaford team in a very one sided match and we won 15-0. We came 5th out of eight teams. I am very pleased with the performance of the team, hopefully we'll be able to win the tournament next year. Written by captain Kaine.

Brighton Museum Trip


We went to the exhibition in Brighton Art Gallery, it was called Sub-versive Design. It was fun and a good day out. We enjoyed everything especially taking pictures of things. It was hard to choose a favourite artwork but Kieran liked the Skull sculpture, model of the Pier and boats and trains. Marco’s favourites were some of the fashion designs and furniture designs like the benches and the round funky chair. It was surprising how much art work there was such as; a skull, shoes, spiders on walls, a bed that was standing up and furniture. Looking at the artwork made us feel good and think about things in a different way. Some of it was a bit surprising and we had never seen artwork like that before. We would like to go again and we would say to other people that it was fun. Kieran learnt that they probably spent a very long time on it to make it really neat- that is something I could do in my Arts Award book. Marco learnt that art isn’t always true and can make you think more.

Sport Relief


Click here to open the above photo gallery

I ran the sport relief mile on Friday afternoon with a number of students (including Stuart who ran with his full rucksack on his back) and staff and it was really enjoyable. There was a sense of determination, with some students struggling to run all of it but persevering to see it through, whilst raising money for charity. There was a cake and drink sale outside to raise money too. I just think its great that lots of our students supported this event and wanted to be a part of Sport Relief. That was down to Miss Barry who organised the pay a £1 to wear a red top, motivated people and even had the energy to run a mile at the end of Friday, when everyone else is winding down. Thanks Miss Barry for the hard work you put into this and making it such an enjoyable end to the day. Written by Mr Warner-Swann.

Total raised for Sport Relief £313.00 with about £90 coming from the fair trade cake sale.

Those who would like to run the Brighton mini-mile held at Preston Park on Sat 5th April can visit the website to enter. It's £15.00 entry fee but you get lots of goodies too! www.brightonmarathon.co.uk/iconiq-shlurp-mini-mile-races

Trading Game


Click here to open the above photo gallery


Fairtrade FoundationOn the 17th February all year 8 students took part in the Trading Game. It was a fantastic opportunity to work and learn in teams outside of the classroom environment. Can we congratulate students on the excellent way they embarked on the activities as some groups had to overcome starting with very few resources whilst others were quickly into manufacturing as they realised they had the means for production.

Students found out for themselves about some of the components of world trade as well as the operations and inequalities involved. The atmosphere in the room was full of energy as students traded resources with each other, some groups making huge profits whilst others wishing to support those groups without. This greater understanding will support the work they carry out during the current Geography unit of work on Globalisation and help to promote the Fairtrade Foundation and the producers they support.

Maths Challenge


Four of our brilliant year 9 students took part in the UKMT Regional Maths Challenge at Lancing College. They competed against pupils from all over the South East region – from The Isle of Wight to Kent.

They put in a fantastic performance and left 10 schools behind in the league table. As well as being impeccably behaved and having a fantastic day, our students achieved the best score ever for PCS. Well done Briony, Callum, Aidan and Ben and good luck to our year 10’s on the 28th March with their challenge!

Photo Competition

The Art department set the challenge of taking a photograph that summed up the idea of either New Beginnings or Festivities. The standard was very high and choosing a winner was a difficult task.

Congratulations go to Ernest Godden whose work was highly commended and Jake Shipton who won with his picture of the squirrel.
