SLT Update April 5th

5th April 2019


  • The latest edition of our magazine has been published. Please follow this link.
  • Our Year 9 boys football team were involved in a nail-biting quarter final against Swavesey Village College after-school on Wednesday. We battled back from 2-0 down to lead 3-2, only to concede a late equaliser. Despite being in the ascendancy during the 10mins extra-time, we couldn’t force the winner. The penalty shoot-out was as tense as expected with several parents in attendance. We exited the competition 4-3. 
  • Year 7 Mavericks- Our year 7 Mavericks netball team got off to a flying start against Parkside this week, with some excellent passing and moving. The attackers were fast paced, creating lots of opportunities for the shooters! Poppy Todd And Daisy Nicholls demonstrated some fantastic shooting technique, rarely missing a shot! A fantastic game for the Mavericks! Well done, girls! Final Score: 20-3 to Melbourn. Player of the Match: Poppy Todd.
  • Year 7 Wasps: The Wasps put in a strong performance in a highly competitive match. The girls demonstrated some excellent defence and resilience throughout the game. The game was incredibly tight throughout, unfortunately, missing out on the win by 1 goal! A shout out must go to Kloe Holland-Rimell, for stepping in and playing for Parkside, who were one player down! Final Score: 10-9 to Parkside. Player of the Match: Jazzy Osborne.
  • Well done to our Year 11 students, who organised a really fun ‘MVC’s Got Talent’ on Wednesday, raising £500 for their prom. The acts were varied, including the musical talents of Mr French and Mr Holmes, Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Coghlan showcasing their Ant and Dec moves, Dr Wilson leading me so wonderfully in ceroc and ending with an almost perfect rendition of ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Mr Kennedy. Mr Tobutt commented, ‘I'm really proud to be in a school where the staff are prepared to join in these things with such gusto. Thank you. The students loved your performances, as did we all. A really nice way to end the term.’
  • We would like to say a huge thank you and fond farewell to Bridget Rogerson, who is retiring today after 19yrs service in the kitchen. Bridget has been a great help to us and we wish her well.
  • Also, today, the Humanities department bids farewell to Miss Richardson, as she completes her stay here at MVC. She has brought a lot of energy and ideas to Geography lessons and we wish her the best of luck in the future. She will be missed!
  • Year 11 students: now is the time to rise to the challenge of what lies ahead. Use your time wisely over Easter, ensuring that you have a healthy balance of focused revision and relaxation. Please see the individual email via Schoolpost regarding your Easter revision sessions at MVC.
  • Long Road Sixth Form Photography Department will be running a 1-day zine workshop on 28th May. This artist-led workshop is open to all passionate photographers aged 14-15 and will be held on the Long Road Sixth Form College campus. More information can be found on the website: and booking is now open.


Have a good Easter break.
