Year 11 success

Congratulations to our Year 11 students who continue to work hard in preparation for their exams this summer.  As Mr Fawcett points out in his message in the Spring 2 newsletter, students are reaping the rewards of their persistent hard work over time: the percentage of students on track to achieve their targets or even exceed them is higher than ever.  Students are extremely well prepared for their Easter holiday revision: all teachers have provided them with individualised revision lists and resources and all students have an updated revision timetable to support them in managing their time.  School will be open every day during the Easter holidays (except for weekends, Good Friday, and Bank Holiday Monday) for supervised study sessions and subject specific revision sessions, which all students are welcome to attend.  Well done Year 11 and keep up the good work!

Year 8 Netball: we are the champions!

Written by Abbie Greenhough

On Thursday 15th March, a talented group of Year 8 girls from Swanwick Hall School took part in The Amber Valley District Netball competition held at John Flamsteed School.

Our first game was against Heanor Gate. We were one nil up and fighting to keep it that way. However, with little time left Heanor scored to make it one all. The final whistle blew with the result being a draw.  Following the hard-fought draw, we then faced our closest rivals Ecclesbourne in what was, a great match. Desperate to win, the girls worked as a team and soon we had scored five. Ecclesbourne had scored one but that wasn't enough. Swanwick took the win 5-1.  After a great start Swanwick were very confident that the rest of the games would be positive too. Swanwick went on to win the rest of their games against Aldercar High School, Belper School and Flamsteed.  As a fantastic evening of netball came to an end, the Swanwick team went home celebrating as Amber Valley District netball champions.

Team Members were Abbie Greenhough, Eve Howarth, Olivia Frost, Molly Guy, Jess Melrose, Abigail Clarke, Jess Tolan, Isla Pepper, Lucy Parkin, Alyssa Smith and Nettie Gdula Marshall-Clarke.
