Gelato, pizza, pasta...and much more!
Half term saw a fantastic (and a little exhausting) Geography trip to Italy for 49 Year 10s. It was a 5 day adventure led by Mr Rowe and lovingly hashtagged #mrrowesmagicalmysterytour by the end.
From the bay of Naples, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius to Sorrento, the Amalfi coast and the Coliseum in Rome – the extraordinary variety of historical and geographical features were incredible – and in perfect weather too! Some of the views were simply breathtaking. There was a good deal of walking – 10 miles were clocked up in Rome! However any sore feet were quickly forgotten by some fabulous food – after all no trip to the home of gelato, pizza and pasta would be complete without trying at least some of Italy’s finest.
The Year 10s had a fantastic time – they even impressed the BA flight attendants en route – the best behaved group they’d ever seen and complimentary drinks were served! A great trip for both students and staff.
Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
It's Fri-YAY and we're celebrating Matt D and his performance at the National Schools Biathle last weekend. He was placed 2nd in the Year 7 Boys race. (Biathle is an event that can involve a runswimrun course, or simply a swimrun course). #SoundsExhausting #GoMattGo https://t.co/pIe7RXQUpa 6:00 PM - 24 Jun 2022
