Scott embraces work experience and a BTEC

Many of the year 11s have now secured a work experience placement. Scotts is at the idyllic Barnsley Park Stables run by Leanne Brown. Scott has had a passion for horses for as long as I have been at the school and regularly rides at weekends, it is his ambition to leave school and go on to college and then into the equestrian industry. So, with this in mind, the stables were the ideal place to go. Not only is Scott doing his work experience there, but he is also doing a BTEC in horse studies.

Winter Wildlife

Winter Wildlife

Lucas has braved the wind, the cold and dodged the rain, for his new ASDAN project on wildlife photography.

Burning Rubber!!

After wisely saving their activity money, the Aldsworth boys finally made it offsite to the M4 go-karting track in Chippenham. After a safety talk, the boys changed into their protective clothing and chose their wheels.

They made an impressive start, despite a few spins from Lucas and a bit of road rage from Kieran. After a few laps, Scott and Chris picked up the pace and it was Scott that was triumphant at the end. The second race however, had the added excitement of the mystery driver in pink. The outrageous driving of 'Mr Pink' shook up the track and took the boys by surprise. The mystery driver took the lead and smashed the record set!

The boys were shocked to find their Champion driver was in fact, Mr Davis!

Ready Steady Cook

Aldsworth boys took to the kitchen to prepare themselves a meal fit for a king.

Football Reward Night

Football in Lydiard Park

Aldsworth Boys are back after the summer break. Pupils and staff spent the evening in Lydiard park, admiring the surroundings playing football, and relaxing by the lake.


Cool Riders

Aldsworth boys managed to get in the top five points last week and got on the reward trip out to the Daredevil Show in Cirencester Park.  Here they watched stunts galore, including jumping over cars and even through fire! Inspired by the show, the boys had the
opportunity to sit on the bikes and show their Dare Devilish side!

.....Think we should leave it to the professionals!

Fishing for Their Dinner

Aldsworth boys took to the river in hope to catch their dinner! The boys learnt about respecting the natural environment and helped removed litter from the river, as they scavenged for food. By using teamwork, the boys managed to catch three good sized crayfish and Lucas even managed to catch a fish! Sadly, the fish was too small and escaped the pan this time!

When back at school, the boys learnt to cook the crayfish humanely and tucked in to a morsel before bed.

Out at last!!

Despite the enormous disappointment of the pool closure last week, Aldsworth finally made it out on their house area trip. All the boys had worked really hard and had been on their best behaviour to earn the reward. The boys had a fantastic time playing on the water slides at the Oasis in Swindon and then returned for some well earnt chips. Great Night! 


Nice weather for ducks!!

Aldsworth boys braved the winds and the storm to set sail on the Thames with expert Kayaker Mr Aiuto on Tuesday night.  As you can see from the photos, the boys were not naturals but showed terrific resilience and determination throughout  their expedition. Hopefully, the sun will be shinning on their next attempt!
