Teaching Award

Health and Social Care Teacher, John Andrews is a finalist for Secondary School Teacher of the Year (Pearson Teaching Awards). John has taught at the school for 7 years and said "I am absolutely humbled and honored that my students have nominated me for this award. Teaching health and social care is very worthwhile especially seeing my students progress into university or jobs related to health and social care."

Finalists will find out if they have received a Pearson Teaching Awards on Thank a Teacher Day, 16 May 2014. 



Young Enterprise Success

On the 28 of March the company won a Special Recognition Award at a Young Entrepreneurs event sponsored by Deutsche Bank at the BT Tower Auditorium. On the 31 of March they added to their trophy collection at the Young Enterprise Area Final. As the only Year 10 company, up against ten year 12 groups (including entrants from private schools), they wowed judges with their advert and role play based presentation, scooping Runner Up Company and Best Presentation. They will now progress to the Regional Finals held in May. The product is a see through exam pack that includes all the essentials for the test as well as a scientific calculator. This allows school to simply place the packs on the exam desks and then collect and replenish the cases afterwards.

Bushido Black Belts

The Bushido Club at Featherstone School celebrates the award of Shodan (Black Belt) grades to Gurkirpal Khosa and Rajjan Sund on the 4 April. The students had to fight hard for their grades (literally!)  - in three styles, Karate, Grappling and Mixed (MMA).  Judging them were high grade black belts and instructors from four other Associations, as well as Bushido Chief Instructor Jon Elkon and Deputy Axel Fouabi. It is very rarely that so many Associations work together for a common cause, but the general agreement was that the students well deserved their black belts.
