Fifa World Cup

Sigma have been following the Fifa World Cup. All tutor groups were given a Group to follow. We have had prizes along the way. First hat trick 9AF. First red card 7BAK and first 0-0 draw 8SL. We are now in the knockout stages and we will be looking for - first team to win on penalty shoot out, first hat trick in knockouts, golden boot and the overall winners!  Each tutor group takes two teams through to knockout stage.   ​​​


The largest football tournament started on Thursday 14th July and Sigma House will be following every game with interest. The prefects and house reps held the draw for the tutor groups to each be assigned to a Group. By having a group it means that each tutor group will take two teams to the knock out rounds. We will have prizes along the way and one overall prize for the tutor groups that wins the World Cup. 

Meat Free Monday

Meat Free Monday was a success with lots of positive comments from both staff and students. The homemade houmous and roasted vegetable sandwich was amazing! Thank you to the school canteen for supporting us with this event.   We are hoping that we will be able to continue and have more of these Mondays.

Thursday 3 May we said goodbye and thank you to our current Prefects - Ishba, Frankie, Mathilda and our House Captain Anas.

As Prefects they worked hard and were dedicated to their roles. They have shown great qualities and have shown how you can work together to achieve great things for our House.   

It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank them all for making it such an enjoyable one.

We have had an amazing time fundraising and have raised a fantastic amount of money for our house charity.

During the House assembly we looked back at their time as Prefects. Click here to view the photos.

Our overall total we have raised for our House charity - The Rainbow Centre for Children is  £2,212

Congratulations to 7BSA they will receive doughnuts at tutor time Friday.

As a House we have been working with Bristol Waste to promote Food Waste and Plastic/Can  recycling in school. I am pleased to say that we now have the bins in place and are already recycling in the Food and Nutrition dept. We have cut down on the general waste by 90% and the students are all keen to recycle. Bins are also with the School Canteen and they will be supporting the recycling of Food and Plastics/cans. We are hoping to extend this to faculty areas and the staff room with smaller recycling bins. Tutor reps are looking at starting a collection rota.

Sigma tutor reps have a small working party that are organising a Meat Free Monday. Details to follow later this month.
