Farewell to the Library Portacabin

We said a final goodbye to the large portacabin located on the school field (previous home of our school library) during the half term break last week.  After a false start on Wednesday due to the high storm 'Doris' winds the huge lorry arrived on Friday, 24th February to undertake the removal via Homefield Road. We have caught some action photos of the removal which are shown below. Special thanks to the Estate Team for all their efforts and to our neighbours in Homefield Road for ensuring safe access for the lorry.

Personal Development Assembly

We are delighted to welcome PC Hall and his 'sniffer dog' to our Year 9 Assembly on Wednesday 1st March. This is part of the Personal Development curriculum and is an example of how the Police can help keep us safe. PC Hall will set up several activities in the Assembly with teaching staff to show just how effective this support can be. This is the only date he can do for several months and the Year 9 are lucky to have this enrichment.

New Sports Hall Planned

As you may be aware, for some time the school has been working with Portsmouth City Council to look at ways to develop the school's site in order to accommodate further pupils over the long term. The link below is to a letter from the School and Council which contains further information relating to this project, including the conversion of the pool to a sports hall. We will be posting more information about the proposals, including some images, after half term.

Leisure and Tourism Trip

Year 10 GCSE Leisure and Tourism pupils visited the Univeristy of Portsmouth Business school on Wednesday, 15th Feburary 2017.  The Head of Faculty, Gerry Banks led a fascinating session on marketing and the promotion of 'mocktails'.  He thought Springfield pupils were very smart in appearance and smart in their answers. Our pupils thought that Gerry was 'awesome'.
