Year 11 students enjoy a day in Berlin, photographed here outside the Bundestag. It was a very early start but well worth the train journey to learn about the city's very varied and interesting history. Students have also been on a tour of Dr Oetker and they will meet the Mayor of Steinhagen at a reception at the town hall tomorrow. Thursday the group will visit the Felix Nussbaum museum in Osnabruck.

A letter has now been published by the Governing Body regarding the outcome of the consultation on the proposed conversion to a Multi-Academy Trust.
