Table Tennis Competition

On 16th January 2018 some of our Year 9 and Year 11 pupils participated in the Portsmouth Schools' Table Tennis Individual Competition. Well done to Ollie Dawson (11L) who made it all the way to the final in what was our first competition for 10 years playing against some strong county players!

Year 9 Parents' Information Evening

Many thanks to those of you who were in attendance at last night's Year 9 Parent Information Evening. We hope you found the evening informative and that you now feel confident in preparing, aiding and supporting your child through their GCSE subjects, particularly for English and mathematics. As promised, the presentation is accessible here in order to revisit and recapture this important information with your child.  I have also added some helpful hints and tips for parents regarding E-Safety, that were discussed by myself, these tips may prove valuable as we all move through advanced digital times.

Many thanks for your ongoing support, and we look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday 21st March for the Year 9 Subject Parents' Evening.

Mrs Goldsmith, Head of Achievement for Year 9

Elderly Neighbours Compliment Springfield Pupils

We were delighted to receive this delightful email from a local residential care home during the holidays regarding the Elderly Neighbours' Party:

We just wanted to thank you and the School for a wonderful afternoon of entertainment and fun. Our residents loved it and we won loads of prizes! All of the students were very attentive and polite and made us feel welcome. The girls that sat with us were chatty and made sure we all had tea and coffee. We all loved the singalong at the end! Once again, you were so generous and all the students are a credit to the school.

Year 7 Geography Work

Year 7 Geography students were tasked with researching the place they think is the best in Britain. They had a choice of how to present their findings and we received lots of great pieces of work ranging from posters and PowerPoint presentations to cakes and well-built models (some of which are pictured below).

Year 11 Pupil Uses First Aid Skills

We were proud the hear that Taylor Davies (11F) completed a heroic act on 19th December.  Taylor found his brother choking on some crackers and unable to breathe, he proceeded to performed the Heimlich maneuver on his brother which dislodged the blockage and probably saved his life! Taylor learned how to perform this maneuver at school during personal development learning lessons and Focus Days.  This shows how learning some simple first aid skills really is invaluable.  Well done to Taylor.

Elderly Neighbours Party

We were delighted to hold our annual Elderly Neighbours' party on Wednesday 20th December 2017. Guests enjoyed a cabaret of music, some drama extracts, bingo, a raffle and mince pies and tea.  Prefects mingled with the guests to ensure everyone had a merry time. 


QA Hospital Donation by Year 7 Pupils

On Wednesday 20th December four pupils from 7S travelled to QA Hospital with Mrs Broome, their tutor to hand over present and card donations collected from members of their tutor group.  The appeal for presents has been made by QA Hospital at a time when many of their older patients who do not have close family or friends visiting them and therefore do not receive any presents on Christmas Day.  7S decided it would be a great act of kindness to donate presents to this worthy cause, this has been part of the 'kindness' tutor group project they are all participating in currently.  The representatives from QA's Medicine for Older People (pictured below) spoke to the pupils about how this has a real impact on patients' wellbeing, with so many of them alone with no family to visit them.  One elderly patient last year said they had not received a Christmas gift in five years so the donated presents and cards will really make a difference!  Thank you to 7S.
