Each year, the Royal Geographical Society awards prizes to geography students who are the highest scoring candidates in public examinations.
We were delighted to hear that Samuel Randewich achieved the highest mark across the country in the GCSE Geography examination last summer and has been given the Society’s Excellence Award.
‘’I absolutely was not expecting this award but I am thrilled to have received it. I would like to thank my Geography teacher, Mrs Woods, for all the effort she made to inspire me to work hard and for making the lessons so enjoyable.’’
This award is thoroughly deserved. Sam is a highly motivated, hard-working student who had a diligent and inspirational teacher in Mrs Woods. It truly was a winning combination!

Not only was our Winter Spectacular Music Concert a huge success, we have pleasure in announcing that we have been awarded the Music Mark, in recognition of the dedication of our Music Department delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. We would like to thank and congratulate Mrs Long and her team for all the hard work and encouragement given to students. If you have never had the pleasure in attending one of our music concerts, you should take the opportunity to experience the wide range of talent our students have to offer. Keep an eye out for any future music events on the school calendar.
At the recent Skillstree Awards, we are very proud to announce that we won the School's Award in recognition of the success of our careers programme. We arrange a full week of careers related activities for our Yr 10 students to help prepare them for the world of work and to highlight the skills employers are looking for in applicants. The week includes workshops, a small business challenge, communication and team building skills, a careers fair and a mock interview day. This week has proved to provide students with essential skills for the future, thus increasing their confidence. The Mayor of Basingstoke attended the evening which celebrated the time and commitment businesses, schools and colleges invest in projects that support young people's preparation for adult life and work.
