'There is a sense of pride in the quality of learning in the school from staff and from pupils'

Good and Improving

Year 10 Prefect Training

An excellent year was capped off by a superb set of training tasks for the Year 10 prefects by the British Army Outreach team. Working carefully in the shade of the magnificent trees that border the school field the prefects were given tasks to complete that developed their communication, team work and leadership skills and having fun at the same time. This 'learning by doing' approach was ideal for them and they rose to the challenge wonderfully well. The future looks bright!

Y8 Trip to Chessington

19:50 UPDATE

Coach has returned. All safe and well. Thank you to staff, pupils and parents for their patience.


18:50 UPDATE

The coach has made good time, passing through Petersfield at 18:45. We hope it will therefore arrive at Springfield at approx. 19:15.


Unfortunately, the coach company has had to send an alternative coach to collect the pupils from Chessington. This is due to an apparent issue with the driver's key. This has resulted in a delay to departure. Pupils are now expected to return to school at approximately 8pm. Please keep checking the website for details. (All pupils safe and well - no cause for concern.)

Stay Water Safe

Please find below some information received from Portsmouth City Council regarding staying water safe over the summer:

Please find attached some water safety guidance around the issue of tombstoning which is particularly relevant for secondary schools. I appreciate this is short notice, but I'd be grateful if this could be disseminated within your school before the end of term. The RNLI link below provides some very useful water safety resources for all schools with suggested age ranges for certain messages and includes one on tombstoning and peer pressure.



Work Experience Debrief Message

Year 10 pupils are required to go in groups to the Marriott hotel for a Work Experience debrief during part of Monday 23rd July. For this they need to bring a signed permission slip from a parent/carer. This is on the attached letter which gives more details of the event. Alternatively parents can sign their own slip. Either way pupils must produce a reply slip in order to attend. Many thanks

Sports Day 2018

We were delighted to hold our first inter-house Sports Day on Wednesday 11th July 2018. Ayrton, Constantine, Franklin, Moore and Woolf all competed against each other in track events including 100m, 200m, 800m, mini marathon and relays. Tutor groups worked hard over the last week preparing flags and torches with a continent being assigned to each house (each tutor group then represented a country from their house continent). Pupils paraded onto the school field to some fantastic tunes provided by some of our music pupils. Field events took place over the past weeks and during Sports Day we focused on the track races. Well done to all the medal winners. A huge congratulations to Poppy Savory (9N), who won the ‘Christine Wilson Sports Day Trophy’ for a great overall performance and to Ayrton who not only won Sports Day but also were overall house winners for the year!


Year 7 - Stay Safe Focus Day

Year 7 had a great boost to their personal development today by excellent role models from a range of emergency services sharing with them what to look for and how to stay safe over the summer and beyond. Our grateful thanks to the RNLI, British Transport Police, HFRS (Cosham - Blue watch), St John Ambulance service as well as the British Heart Foundation's CPR lead by Mrs Mandrill. A high impact day that gives them the knowledge and understanding to make the correct decisions when necessary.  Lucy Carlile of St John Ambulance who is also an ex-Springfield pupil said 'I was asked to come back to Springfield School to help at the Year 7 Focus Day as part of the St John Ambulance.  I was a student last year and wanted to come back and help the Year 7s.  It was great being back!'

Royal Navy Cooking Challenge

We were delighted to welcome Royal Navy chefs Jamie and Josh to Springfield today.  Some of our Year 10 pupils took part in the 'Ready Steady Cook' challenge - they had an hour to produce a two course meal with specific ingredients (including chicken, potato, onion and fruit).  Jamie and Josh observed the pupils offering them expert advice.  Pupils worked quietly and efficiently producing some great dishes including omelette, meringue nests, fruit pancakes stuffed chicken breast and hasselback potatoes.  Well done Year 10s you worked well under pressure!

Welcome to Year 6!

Year 6 pupils arrived this morning to commence their two-day induction at Springfield. Pupils were greeted by their tutors-to-be and were escorted to their new tutor bases. Year 10 tutor group pupil assistants then gave thorough tours of the school. The rest of the day gave them an insight into Springfield school life. Sessions included a great drama production by Soloman Theatre Company, a design and technology lesson that involved making and decorating boxes and a trail as well. Needless to say they will all be exhausted by the end of the day. The fun continues tomorrow!

Year 6 parents/carers - please do not forget that the Parent Induction Evening takes place on Wednesday 4th July 2018, your child will be bringing a letter home with them tonight giving more detail.
