Year 7 History students were set the ambitious task of designing and building their own Castle over the half term for their History project. Students were given one week to complete the project which they would bring into school and entered against the whole of the year.

Pupils designed their castle and entered them under the following categories; Motte and Bailey, Stone Square Keep, Concentric, Palace and a Wild Card Category for any new innovative designs. 

All 127 pupils entered the competition with a large variety of materials used, from a large variety of cardboard castles, cake, glued sugar cubes and even a felt embroidered castle. Each Year 7 group help a semi-final where they voted for the winner against their classmates in the different categories, with the finalists going through to the final which would be judged by the whole school. 

The finalist was held in the Main Hall during Lunch time and was attended by staff and students with the difficult task of picking one overall winner from the 22 finalists.  Miss Palmer with two enthusiastic Year 11 volunteers gathered in and counted all the votes. Despite a challenging decision from the voters, Joshua Gray (7PAR) won 1st place with a staggering 71 votes with his concentric castle which had been carefully crafted from oasis foam, with Archie Lowery (7LMR) and David Grosse (7LMR) in 2nd and 3rd place. 

The bar has been firmly raised by this year’s current Year 7s, and all have been congratulated for their innovative effort by the History Department, well done Year 7!
