SPONSORED WALK 2018 18/10/2018

The whole school sponsored walk took place on the afternoon of Friday 28th September and was about 5 miles. The weather was very kind to us and the atmosphere was really great on the walk, with almost the whole school taking part.  In total, pupils raised a fantastic £8,646; two pupils raised an amazing £190.00 each, they were Abigail Armstrong and Chloe Matthew.  The money will be used to improve the School environment and fund projects suggested by pupils through the School Council.  We also supported Macmillan Coffee Morning on the day and staff and pupils baked and bought cakes to share after the walk.  We have donated £1,000 to MacMillan Cancer Support.

Park Air Systems Sponsorship for Spalding High School 08/05/2018

Mr Martindale attended the International Women's day celebration conference at Park Air Systems and spoke about how important it was to encourage girls into engineering.  While Spalding High school has seen recent pupils entering a wide range of engineering courses at University it is still seen by many as an oily and physical job.  The sponsorship will be used to set up Spalding High School's all girls robotics team to compete in the First Lego league; a lego robotics competition which promotes engineering as a problem solving activity requiring teamwork and analysis skills.
"We are extremely grateful to Mr Goodall and Park Air systems for their sponsorship, especially in the present economic climate.  It will give our pupils both the opportunity to take part in such a wonderful competition, and will reinforce that engineering is a diverse world with  fantastic opportunities."
Park Air systems already sponsor teams at the Deeping school and in primary schools, but are particularly interested to see an all girls’ team take part.  "Since Mr Goodall first contacted me it has all been very exciting"

Equestrian Team Success! 30/04/2018

More success for the riding team! In the Easter holidays, 2 teams were entered into the jumping with style competition held at Codham Park in Essex with hope to qualify for the JWS championships held in October, but unfortunately the injury of Lucy's horse meant that the team had to withdraw from the classes.

Amy Whittington went to the competition as an individual and represented the school beautifully. Amy and her horse Vernon (Newmarket Adventure) rode a stylish clear round a technical course to finish 6th out of a large number of competitors in the 90cm class. They then went on to the 1m class and again rode a fantastic round, with an unfortunate pole dropping them to 5th place.

The final and biggest class of the day, the 1.10m evidently suited Amy and Vernon the best with them winning the class and gaining an individual championship qualification!

“Bring A Tin” Day 2017 08/12/2017

General - Bring A Tin 2017
“This is our fourth annual “Bring a Tin” day in support of the Agape Care foodbank appeal and I am yet again humbled and so, so proud of our school for their commitment to this important local charity.  Today our students, parents and staff have donated over 1600 items of food to our appeal; the highest number of donations to date.  This means that in the last four years we have donated over 5000 items which enable Agape to help people within Spalding and the surrounds.  We know that today we have had a significant and positive impact within our local community and are glad to have made such a contribution and I would like to extend my gratitude to all those who have donated. Thank you ever so much for your generosity.”

Message from Chair of Governors 31/10/2016

To all members of our School community,

As you are aware the Governors of Spalding High School have undertaken a formal consultation in recent months to consider whether we should convert to an academy.  I would like to thank the students, parents, staff and stakeholders who have participated and shared their views on this matter with us.  This week the Governing Body voted unanimously to continue with the process of conversion to an academy.  No significant objections have been raised during our consultations.  We are at the start of a long journey, but rest assured, our prime objective remains to protect and preserve the ethos of our very special school.  After half term we will begin our formal discussions with the Local Authority, Regional Schools’ Commissioner and the Department For Education.  We will, of course, keep you informed of our progress.

Wanted - Used & nearly new uniform 23/05/2016

Used and nearly new uniform – an urgent plea – help us to raise money and save you money too!

We know that children can grow very quickly, especially when they reach their teenage years and this can mean that items of school uniform and equipment can have a short life span!

Every year we raise approximately £1000 by selling used and nearly new items of school uniform that your daughters have outgrown.  The Sixth Form committee do a fantastic job of collecting items, laundering and re-selling them at the new Year 7 intake evening.  The money is kept within the School Charitable Fund and used for projects to support your child’s learning.

However, this is an area that we feel can really develop further and in doing so not only earn money for more school based projects but also to save parents money and increase recycling too.  The long term goal is to have an “electronic shop” via our website where parents of children in any year group can see the nearly new and used (but still in very good condition) items of school uniform and PE kit that are for sale.  In the shorter term we need to significantly increase our stock of used uniform and as such are making a plea for you to send in any of the following items:
• Art and science coats – one would expect these to have some signs of wear due to the nature of their use – but if your daughter has outgrown them or is no longer taking Art in KS4, please send them in.
• Food technology baskets – if your daughter is no longer taking Food & Nutrition in KS4.
• Any item of PE kit, school skirts (old and new style), white shirts (Hills or any other brand are fine), school ties & school jumpers. 

As a parent, we should look at the used item and think to ourselves; it is still in good condition, it is too good to throw away and someone else will be able to get a good level of use out of it.

The summer is traditionally the time that Year 9 will have picked their subjects and know whether they need their Art overalls or food technology baskets; Year 11 will have sat their exams and no longer need any of their items of school uniform and as parents, we get ready to buy new items for the new academic year.  PLEASE; send in the items that you would otherwise throw away or leave in the back of the cupboard so that we can start to make better use of it.

All items should be delivered to the school reception over the next few weeks and again in September.  From the end of Term 6 and in time for the new academic year (once we have sorted out the stock) we will post a listing on the school website.  If there is anything parents would like to buy they should contact the school reception who will make arrangements for you to collect the item(s).  Hopefully this project will become very successful and we will be able to develop our “electronic shop” during the next academic year.
