Well done to Year 7 and the Christmas Bazaar! It was a fantastic two days with all Year 7 getting behind the event. There were so many activities and glorious cakes for everyone to buy! Students had made gifts as well - Christmas themed key rings were particularly popular.
Thanks should go to Mrs. Jethwa, Head of Year and the rest of the pastoral team and, of course, all the parents who must have been up late baking cakes! A huge amount of money was raised - £620 for Children in Need!
Monday, 25th November - the phone lines are working again. Thank you for your patience and we apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused.
Blenheim High School were quick to put measures in to place to help the people of the Philippines. So shocked were staff and students of the consequences of Typhoon Haiyan, an urgent collection was made appealing for dried and tinned food to be brought into school. With a true community spirit, in less than three days a huge pile of food was collected and this was transported to the Philippines on Sunday.
The local FutureChef competition was held at Blenheim and we were delighted to win! All our students performed well on the day and Connor T in Year 10 won the heat. This was not an easy task as he had to impress four external judges! His Menu was: Chicken Jalfrezi with boiled rice and homemade Naan bread and Coconut and Raspberry sponge teacup pudding. Delicious! He now gets two mentor chefs from Sodexo (based at Ascot Racecourse) and goes through to the Regional South East Final in January.
Blenheim High School's FutureChef Cooking Club members and A2 Food Technology celebrated Harvest Festival at Westminster Abbey. They were really excited to meet Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall who was was at the service and spoke to the students about our harvest box. She was impressed and said that 'Blenheim High School must be a wonderful school to attend' The students agreed!
