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.”
