Over three nights this week Kepier hosted it's annual school show, this year the wonderful 'Rock of Ages'. In front of an audience of between 150 - 200 each night, learners from right across our year groups - including Year 11's who have just left us - performed a two hour show filled with great songs and even better performances! Over 100 learners, including cast and back stage staff, took part in what is very much a staple part of our school year and much loved by the local community. Head of Music John Hall said "all those involved, both on stage and behind the scenes, should be proud of their commitment and performances. Rock of Ages is a great show and they certainly did it justice! Many thanks to everyone, both learners and staff involved, who made the three nights so memorable."

Last Friday, we managed to raise over £750 towards the Bradley Lowery Foundation, which is amazing.
Last weekend learners from year 7 and 8 at Kepier embarked on a trip to Kingswood, Hexham. Learners were involved in all sorts of activities including the zip wire, leap of faith and 3G swing, and even got an opportunity to cover the teachers from head to toe in mud! The weather was really kind, and a fantastic time was had by all. Mr. Mayer, who organised the trip, said "I'd like to thank the learners for taking part and behaving well - they did the school proud. I'd also like to thank Miss Rhodes and Mr. Ambridge for giving up their weekend...roll on next year!"
As ever, Kepier's students fully embraced National School Sports Week in the last week of June. Over 150 students took part in a wide range of sports, both at school and at a range of external venues, including Climbing, Dodgeball, Frisbee Golf,Tomahawk Throwing, Crossbow Shooting,Paddle Boarding, Pier Jumping, Dance Masterclass, Trampolining and a visit to Laser Quest. For the vast majority, it was the first opportunity they had had to experience these sports, and everyone involved had a great time. Mr. Dixon, Deputy Department Leader for PE said "a lot of work goes into the organising and planning of the week, but when you see the enjoyment gained by those taking part then it is well worth the effort."
