Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Update

At present we have 94 students on the Award.  We are trying to help all these students complete their Awards before August 2018.  The majority of students are progressing very well through their individual sections but 39 students are still to access their DofE online accounts.   

Can we please these students to have a look at their accounts over the Bank Holiday weekend and to start logging their hours. If you have any problems with your account please see Mrs Thomas as soon as possible.

Bronze Expedition Group - We will be confirming the final details for the Saturday 12th - Sunday 13th May group early next week.  Students in this group must have paid their £200 expedition fees to be able to attend.   

Performance Education in Sport Group

The next workshop is Wednesday 9th May at Uppingham School.  The guest speaker is Henry Winter who is an award winning sports journalist with The Times newspaper.  If any students have a particular interest in journalism but are not part of the PES group please contact Mr Lewin as we can still accommodate you for this workshop.  Students should meet Mr Lewin in the Sports Centre Reception at 6.45pm, pick up time is 8.10pm approximately. 

Rutland Sports Leadership Academy (Years 7/8)

The next workshop will be on Tuesday 22nd May between 4.00pm – 5.30pm here in the UCC sportshall.  Please let Mr Lewin know if you can attend.

We are also looking for Leaders to help deliver a session to the Rutland Primary Leaders on the following night Wednesday 23rd may again here in the UCC sportshall.  If you can help with this session please let Mr Lewin know.     

Year 7 Cricket Trial Match

We’ve had a fantastic response to our Year 7 Cricket trials.  To try and give as many students a chance we are going to run a trial match between ourselves next Thursday at Uppingham Cricket Club.  We can only take 16 students on the bus so please can we ask that those selected to ONLY bring in their bats, gloves, helmets and a box.  We will not have room on the bus for everyone’s cricket bags so players will have to use the school pads on this occasion.  Please note: Pick up will be at 6pm at Uppingham Cricket Club which is on the old Leicester Road.
