    Thank you, CCS community! Your incredible generosity has made a huge impact on our 'Caring is Sharing' initiative. Last week, we reached out to CCS parents for food donations to support our disadvantaged families over the half-term break, and the response was overwhelming! We're truly grateful to everyone who contributed to this important cause. A special shoutout to the following companies: - Kajima: Your generous donations and efforts, especially Sam Bell and her family, who curated beautiful toiletry hampers, are deeply appreciated. - Mitie: Thank you for your ongoing support, with a special mention to Mick for always going the extra mile. - Tesco Mereway: Huge thanks for the donation of shopping bags, facilitated by Remi, Tesco Community Champion, which helped us organise and distribute the donations efficiently. House captains from Primary, as well as a couple Sixth Form volunteers helped bag up a few of the donations, along with our fantastic support staff in Primary. Your kindness and collaboration truly make a difference! #CaringIsSharing #CommunitySupport #EmpathyInAction

    On Monday, the Visual Art department took our A level Fine Art and Photography students and a number of Design Technology students to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Tate Britain in London. The purpose of the visit was for students to gather contextual reference materials for either their Year 13 exam projects, or for Year 12 students' coursework projects. In their upcoming lessons, students will now begin to present their findings in their portfolios and develop ideas from this research. All of the students were impeccably behaved and had a fantastic time during the trip, with an added treat of stopping at the motorway services on the return journey home for some fast food proving very popular!

    Yesterday, all of our Year 12 Biology and Chemistry students attended a Careers in Science Experience Day at the University of Northampton. During the day, students received an interesting talk introducing them to higher education, and university courses that could be open to them with A Levels in Biology and Chemistry, as well as an exciting insight into careers in science. Later on the students got to make use of some of the universities equipment, including blood pressure machines and microscopes, to further develop their practical learning. Staff from the university commented on how well behaved, engaged and confident our students were and we thank the University of Northampton for the incredible experience! @uninorthants_uon

    A big well done to our U14s girls' football team who emerged victorious in the quarter cup finals against Guilsborough yesterday. They achieved a well-deserved win and are advancing to the semi-finals. The team displayed skill, determination, and teamwork, securing a remarkable 5-3 victory for CCS! The entire team worked so hard the whole game and never gave up. On to the semi-finals!
