Lucton School CCF flying high

Year 9 Lucton School CCF cadets about to fly at Lucton School

Lucton School Year 9 pupils about to take their air experience flights in a Griffin helicopter from RAF Shawbury on a visit to Lucton.

Last Friday, 60 Squadron, from the Defence Helicopter Flying School (DHFS), based at Royal Air Force Shawbury, Shrewsbury had allocated a Griffin helicopter to visit Lucton School and take cadets on Air Experience Flights. Lucton’s Contingent Commander, Capt Derrigan had nominated Year 9 as the priority to fly, so each member of Year 9 was able to experience the local area from 1000 feet as the helicopter circled the surrounding countryside for around 10 minutes before returning for a rotors running change-over. The cadets were very slick at their change-overs, assisted by a great ground crew team of Paige and Ellie, so we even managed to fly an extra 10 cadets from year 10. When the helicopter was shut down for the safety brief, the Prep School and Nursery also had a good look around. Once the flights had started many Middle School pupils also made their way over to get a look at what their time in the cadets will bring. A huge thank-you to 60 Sqn, DHFS for what we hope will become a long affiliation.             Squadron Leader House.

Lucton School’s Tercentenary Cross Country Run 2016

Picture of the four Lucton Prep School boys who finished in the top five places of the Year 4 boys' race.

Lucton’s Year 4 boys claimed an incredible four of the top five places!

A record 27 schools attended this year’s Tercentenary Cross Country event at Lucton School, with just under 600 runners across the four year age range from Year 3 to Year 6.
St Richard’s were this year’s winners, with Lucton School achieving 2nd place, just 5 points behind. A great result, with Lucton’s best showing in the Year 4 Boys, where Lucton boys achieved 4 of the first 5 places! 1st George Jones, 2nd Jack Sneyd, 4th Zac Powell and 5th Freddie Ammonds. This year’s second place is one better than Lucton achieved last year, displaying great consistency. Successfully hosting such a large number of runners, plus hundreds of teachers and parents was a tremendous logistical achievement with many pupils acting as hares, sweepers, chaperones, marshals, car parking attendants, scorers, first aiders and senior pupils in all manner of roles. A magnificent team effort of which Lucton should be very proud!

TED’S ‘STARLIGHT’ WISH

Having completed his treatment for Leukaemia, Lucton Prep School pupil Ted Rogers was very fortunate to be granted a wish by the charity ‘Starlight’ – their aim is to brighten the lives of seriously ill children.
Ted’s wish was to swim with dolphins; they granted not only that, but, a holiday in Orlando for all of the family. They stayed in a purpose built village called ‘Give The Kids The World’ which also provided a week’s worth of VIP tickets to Disney, Universal and Sea World.
Swimming with dolphins was by far Ted’s favourite part of such a memorable trip!Lucton-School-Ted-&-Dolphin

Record number of LAMDA distinctions

Huge congratulations to all LAMDA students who once again exceed expectation and prove just what a talented and “dramatic” set we have here at Lucton. It has been a record high level of those students achieving Distinction grade for their exams, including five students at Bronze and Silver Medal status. This will award them valuable UCAS points for their future endeavors in University applications.

Between Year 5 – Year 12, there were 34 Distinctions and 13 Merits! These included some record highs of 97 for Alexander Wood &  a personal best of Distinction for Bella Smith, both in Verse and Prose. Lily Layton and Tess Mayglothling achieved Distinction for their Duologue Acted Bronze Medal, Georgia Lewis achieved a Distinction for her Bronze Medal Public Speaking, and Ellie-Mae Davies–Bufton and her partner Ellie Evans both got Distinction for their Silver Medal Duologue Acted exam – congratulations! Particular congratulations go to these students for their hard work as it is a big demand on their time, but most definitely worth it to see all their efforts paying off.

Further down the school, Harriet Sneyd took her first ever exam, and achieved 92 – a brilliant mark! In the Prep School, Morgan Lockwood Wolfe achieved 91 and a Distinction for his first exam here in Verse and Prose. Many of our younger students took their first exam and did incredibly well!

All in all, Mrs Rogers and Mrs Sharman are thrilled with the results, and it goes to show what can be accomplished when a student sets their mind to it. We would also like to thank all parents who supported your child at home with line learning etc – it is so valuable.
