Here are a couple of photos: of the McGill University campus and one taken inside the lecture theatre. The students were being addressed by a representative of the United Nations. The conference theme is: Human Rights.
Congratulations to our Community IT Class who have completed their 8 week course. They have learnt a whole range of skills from downloading photos from a camera, to using word to make party invitations!
As we mentioned last week, 4 of our students are attending the IBWSC in Montreal. They have arrived and are settling in. They are the only students representing a UK school! The conference presents a unique opportunity as there are students from schools in the USA, Colombia, Japan, Pakistan, Thailand and Egypt. Lots of information about ‘our school’ being exchanged of course and the conference sessions begin in earnest today.
More information throughout the week. Follow us on twitter.

Louise Hearty and Chloe Brown, both Year 12, will be busy packing this weekend as they get ready for their 5 day summer school at the University of Warwick. This starts on Tuesday and promises to be an action packed week for them with lectures and workshops to keep them busy. Plus of course, they get that all important taste of what life at one of the UK’s top universities will be like. Brilliant experience!
They will of course be writing about their ‘week at Warwick’ when they get back!
Four of our Year 12 students are more than usually excited – on Saturday Eleanor Armstrong, Mira Patel, Enroy Vickers and Tom Pickard – together with Mr Guy, will be en route to the IB World Student Conference in Montreal!
