@Caterham.High.SchoolYear 8 STEM Trip to the BBC The students arrived at BBC Broadcasting House in plenty of time and were lucky to meet with Carol Kirkwood, the BBC Breakfast weather presenter, who had just finished her working day. All school parties participated in a lively presentation of the day’s events. Cyber Security – Our students attempted to break into a computer system with some guidance from the BBC young apprentice’s. Basics of coding instructions were demonstrated with a peanut butter and jam sandwich making process. The students gave the ‘alien’, instructions and visual gestures on how to make a sandwich. One or two of them tasted the end result! User Acceptance Testing – Our students tested a system which still had errors and they did brilliantly spotting all the errors! Phishing emails are a growing epidemic and our students were taught how to spot them! Group work searching https://radio.garden and listening to live radio stations all around the world. Waiting in reception to go into the open plan office of the BBC News station. Meeting Darren Bett, weather presenter, who explained how the weather forecasts have changed since the first broadcast in 1922. Our students had the wonderful opportunity to visit the weather studio (also known as the green room). Budding weather presenters in the making. It’s not as easy as it looks!
@Caterham.High.SchoolYear 7 hearing-impaired (HI) students have been reflecting on their move from primary to secondary school and writing postcards to their former teachers to let them know how they have settled in. It's great to see that they have all managed to find their way around with the help of their HI student mentors and that they have already formed good relationships with their teachers of the deaf and subject teachers. They have all made a very positive start to their time at Caterham - well done!
@Caterham.High.SchoolWell done to Year 9 student for winning the September Jack Petchey award. The student has won £250 for the school which she has decided to donate towards the Drama Department.The student was chosen from many wonderful students to win the Jack Petchey award, as she has shown to be a real ambassador to the school and a great model to others by being so welcoming to our new EAL students. She always helps EAL students where she can, translating in class and even goes out of her way to find someone that does speak the language of a new student, even if she doesn't. The student is very kind and considerate and incredibly modest, it has been so wonderful to see her grow in confidence through helping other students after arriving to Caterham as an EAL student herself.

@Caterham.High.SchoolStand Up to Cancer Charity Some of our Sixth Form students have requested support from the school community to support Stand up to Cancer. Stand up to Cancer is a fundraising campaign, by Cancer Research UK and Channel 4, with the aim of speeding up life-saving cancer research. To support this, the school will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday October 4th for staff and students. Additionally, this event will also serve as a fundraiser for the school – for example resources for open areas of the school. Students wishing to participate will be allowed to come to school in appropriate non-uniform on this day. We are asking for a voluntary donation of £1, which will be collected on the gate as students arrive to school. Students will attend normal timetabled lessons, and will be expected to follow the schools code of conduct as normal. I hope you will encourage your child to be part of this charitable event.
@Caterham.High.SchoolMrs Threadwell’s Year 10 GCSE class are learning how to devise a performance using a variety of techniques. The students used movement to tell a story and used music provided as stimulus. They tried to use clearly defined movements and a varied pace. This video shows their ensemble piece their own ideas. They wanted to explore a relationship, a friendship and domestic abuse in their narrative.
