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



Good and Improving

Mangahigh Explained

Mangahigh is a website, designed by Oxford University, to which Springfield subscribes to each year allowing our pupils to independently learn Mathematics at home and in school.  The video highlights to parents how their son or daughter can improve their confidence, fluency and overall grade in Mathematics whilst having fun at the same time.  It provides healthy competition for all aspects of Mathematics and is an excellent revision tool to consolidate their learning that takes part in the classroom.

Congratuations to ex-pupil Thomas Goss who has just successfully completed his 44 week commissioning course with the British Army and is now an officer in the Army Air Corps!

He is about to start his training as a helicopter pilot. Thomas aspired to be a pilot even when he was at Springfield! Thomas and ex-pupil David Seaton were both listed in the Court Circular of The Telegraph following their Commissioning parade with Springfield School after their names!

How Healthy Are We?

Year 8s have been considering important health issues this morning thanks to the Children’s Society. Year 8 and 10 pupils recently completed the Portsmouth Health Survey and this morning’s session follows that up. Pupils were engaged with debating health issues and they also used their creative skills to list down unhealthy lifestyles on clouds and healthy lifestyles on hearts.
