One of our Year 7 students, Bartek Golonko has made it to the national final of the Royal Mail Young Letter Writer Competition. It's a significant achievement as he has made it through to the last 24 out of 100,000 entries. The competition required entrants to write a letter to a prospective employer about their dream job and why they were a suitable candidate.
Bartek was interviewed live on Radio Devon on Wednesday 3 February with his teacher, Miss Loader. He explained how he came to write the letter about what was his dream job. He wants to be a pilot and can explain very clearly why this is the case.
During this month, a panel of VIP judges, including TV presenter Helen Skelton, will select the overall winners from the 24 Area Winners.
Brilliant Letter Writer is in National Final!!!

The National winner will be announced at the end of February. All the prizes will then be awarded in early March. This young man is a credit to himself, his family and the college. Bartek won the area finals to make it to the final and because of that he has already won £200 in vouchers and £200 for the college.
Bartek said, "Last year, I was offered the experience of writing a letter to the Royal Mail about my dream job, a pilot. When I started writing the letter, I said to myself that I'm only doing this for fun and to challenge myself, I wasn't thinking about getting through to the finals. I'm thrilled and excited!"

A team of Most Able Year 9 students are currently engaged in a fascinating historical journey to research the stories and sacrifices made by Exmouth men during the First World War.
The project has been developed in order to produce a book of remembrance that supports the recently opened memorial garden on the Gipsy Lane site of the College. The project, which is led by Miss Ayres of the English Department, has unearthed heart wrenching tales such as that of Private Louis Snow who was killed on the Macedonian front, a largely forgotten campaign. Or John Yeo and John Lewis Yeo who were a father and son serving on the same ship when it was torpedoed.
Following an extensive period of research the students are now planning to develop written pieces and art work that will bring these stories to life. The resulting work will be collected into a publication available to the whole of the Exmouth community: it should serve as a lasting tribute to the sacrifices made by these individuals.
The students involved are: Katie Andrews, Theo Burne, Beth Chivers, Thomas Croal, Serena Dyke, Jasmine Simpson-Currie, Meghan Evans, Tegan Ferguson, Zacch Lines, Joe Wibberly, Charlie Levi, Abigail Hoppins, and Oscar Al-Mashoor
Students Count The True Cost Of War
Anything Goes is a musical with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The original book was a collaborative effort by Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse. The story revolves around the crazy antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, and Public Enemy Moonface Martin, help Billy to win Hope’s affections. The musical introduced such songs as "Anything Goes", "You're the Top", and "I Get a Kick Out of You."
Anything Goes was a great success for all involved. The production captured the period in which it is set well with costumes, set and lighting evoking the period. The actors characterisation and body language reflected their obvious enjoyment at taking part and the great deal of time spent in rehearsal. Because of the commitment of all those involved the show was really enjoyable. The cast tackled classic songs such as “I Get a Kick Out of You” with real verve. There were some wonderful performances from the cast many of whom had very good comic timing.
The key posts of Director and Choreographer and Musical Director were not taken by teachers but by exceptional senior students.
Joshua Brown directed and choreographed the show whilst Matthew Jackson was Musical Director. To see the full cast, crew and musicians please click here
The Exmouth Journal will be carrying a feature spread about the show with lots of great pictures by Drama teacher Mr J Turner.
Fabulous Show is a Great Achievement for Young Directors, Cast and Crew!
College Dancers Work with Primary Students
College Dance students have been working with primary students to create dances on set themes. On Thursday 4 February they presented their dances in front of students from all the primary schools and staff taking part in the project.
Principal, Mr Alexander, attended and was so impressed that he stayed for the entire session and said that he was amazed at the standard of the young people from the primary schools.
Primary students also presented dances they had created with their teachers which were all very impressive.
As part of the afternoon college students did an exhibition dance featuring dances that will be performed at the forthcoming dance show at the college: Blend. Blend features examination standard pieces performed by senior students: see details in the panel on the left
