    Published 14/05/18

    Fifty year seven students attended The Creative Conductors Workshop in school on Thursday 10 May it was  an exciting ‘maker-style’ workshop that covered energy conduction, circuits and the design process - with a creative twist! Students  used a Makey Makey (the kit that “turns the world into a controller”) to combine their knowledge of energy concepts with engineering thinking.  Exploring concepts in Physics, Design & Technology and Engineering, these workshops showcase STEM education using a fun and interactive format.

  • Clare Short, MP for Ladywood from 1983 – 2010 and former St Paul’s Girl.

    Published 14/05/18

    On Friday 4th May we were awarded the great privilege of a visit from Clare Short, MP for Ladywood from 1983 – 2010 and former St Paul’s Girl. Ms Short firstly met with our Head Girl Team who discussed their roles as leaders within our school community and were able to gather valuable information on ways to be advocates for those whom they are so lucky to serve and represent.  She then went on to meet with A Level History and Politics students for a question and answer session.  Our girls asked excellent and wide ranging questions; for example Marcia in Year 12 asked about the handling of the recent Oxfam scandal given Ms Short’s previous role as Secretary for International Development.  Bria, also in Year 12 commented on Ms Short’s campaign to ban page three and asked whether the feminist fight was still a fight?!  Delal, Year 12, asked whether the invasion of Iraq, leading to her resignation, was 'an honourable deception'?  The name of Ms Short's autobiography.  We were so proud of our students’ intelligent and mature approach to this session and we were all inspired by the frank answers given and the quality of discourse that followed between speaker and students.  Ms Short finally met with our School Council to answer their questions and support them in their role to develop a democratically accountable body who make a difference in our community.  A proud and memorable day for all concerned.

  • Visit to the Houses of Parliament and the Palace of Westminster

    Published 13/03/18

    Monday 12th March 56 students from Year 7-13 were lucky enough to visit the Houses of Parliament in London - the home of our democracy.  We visited the Palace of Westminster and were able to go into both chambers; the House of Commons and the House of Lords and had a marvellous insight into the procedures and oddities of our legislature.  Did you know the first way that our MPs vote is to shout 'aye' or 'no' and see who is the loudest?! 

    We then took part in a representation and democracy workshop where we explored the strengths and weaknesses of different voting systems.  Well done to the girls for asking such intelligent questions and for their impeccable behaviour.  We were very proud of you
