Fund raising for a struggling school in South Africa
  Our Student Council have raised money for a school in South Africa recently. The school was set up with no funding and struggles greatly financially. It is focused toward helping students on the autism spectrum and Neil Obbard, one of our staff, works very closely with them to support wherever possible. Neil recently returned from a trip to the school and relayed the difficulties faced there.      
  Our Student Council wanted to get involved and from our Children in Need fundraising day donated half the money to the school. Well done to all involved that helped this worthy cause.

Rotary Shoebox Scheme
The JSTC Student Council have been very busy this year and have recently completed a shoebox charity project through the Rotary Shoebox Scheme. Every student in the school got involved through their tutor groups and Student Council representatives. Our students and their families generously donated items to fill the boxes with dedicated gifts for babies, children, teenagers and for households with 87 boxes in total being sent on their way.
This is a wonderful idea and very worthwhile to consider those underprivileged children and families that will receive their gifts over the Christmas period in different international locations. Many thanks to all that worked so hard to make this such a big success.

The Great JSTC Express
This academic year has seen a very busy start with the inclusion of The JSTC Express Technology Challenge. Each year students from local primary schools are invited to attend the big event and this time over 250 pupils attended from 7 schools.
The challenge this time was to design and build carriages that were then attached to a remote control train.  Pupils took the controls to operate the train and make deliveries to different stations along a track the length of our main hall.
Other activities included a crane loading challenge, accuracy push, slalom and train quiz. Our visiting pupils had a very busy and exciting time and took home their completed carriages.   
Many thanks to the JSTC Student Council who were extremely helpful throughout the day. Thanks also to Mrs Armstrong for providing excellent lunches once again for our visitors.

Louis selected to represent Great Britain at the European Youth Cup
Louis Perkins   Louis Perkins

The indoor archery season has now finished and it has been an exciting time for one JSTC student! In December, Louis Perkins came second in Archery GB's Junior National Indoor Competition held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Competing in the Junior Gentlemen Under 14 Recurve section he scored 553 in the 18m single Portsmouth competition.

Louis's personal best for a single Portsmouth is now 566, which he achieved at the Lincolnshire County Indoor Championships. The competition - part of a double Portsmouth Tournament - saw Louis break the county and regional (East Midlands Archery Society) record with a score of 1128.

The outdoor season is now underway and Louis has just started shooting at 60m, which is above his age category, and got off to a cracking start with a personal best of 557 for a 720 competition. Louis's aim now is to improve his scores scores further and gain considered for the GB selection shoots. Well done, Louis!
  UPDATE 1# - 07/06/15:      
As of Sunday 7 June 2015, Louis is Lincolnshire Junior Gent County Champion. He was already Indoor Champion but managed to achieve first place on Sunday in the outdoor Lincolnshire County Championships in Boston.
Louis is involved in competitions most weekends, and over the next 6/7 weeks will take place in various events in his quest to secure an invitation to the GB Selection next year. Essentially, Louis needs 3 scores of over 595 while shooting at a distance of 60m. Thankfully, on 25 May 2015, Louis managed his first one with a score 601! Well done, Louis!
  Let the games commence!      
  UPDATE 2# - 06/07/15:      
Louis had a fantastic weekend at the Archery GB junior nationals at Lilleshall National Sports Centre where he came 3rd on Saturday in the metric competition (50m, 40m, 30m and 20m) with a score of 1268. It wasn't a Personal Best though because he got that the other weekend in Cambridge where he achieved 1308 (a County record).
On Sunday he came fourth in the Imperial Competition (50yds, 40yds and 30yds). He scored an outstanding 1190 which was another Personal Best.
  He's happy that he made 3rd and 4th in a National Competition but is not satisfied just yet!      
He's got his last Academy Camp of the academic year, next weekend in Beverley. He'll be working hard to get himself prepared for 2 more important competitions later this month in Fakenham and Durham where he'll be trying to get one more GB selection shoot score.
  Louis wishes to extend his grateful thank to all those that have, and continue to, support him.      
  UPDATE 3# - 14/12/15:      
On Saturday 12th Decemeber the round shot was called a Portsmouth and on Sunday it was a WA18. Both mean Louie shot at a distance of 18m but a Portsmouth is a single target face and a WA 18m means a shot at 3 smaller faces.
In the Junior Nationals Louie was first reserve for Team England in the Home Nations competition. He is now working towards being selected to actually shoot for Team England. He was in the Under 16 category, having only just moved up from the Under 14s and came 4th, achieving a personal best of 579 (out of a total of 600) for a Portsmouth round.
In the adult Indoor Nationals, Louie achieved another personal best for a WA 18m of 547. His aim for this competition was to rank in the top 50 out 0f 167 archers. He came 38th. If he’d made 32nd place he would have got through to the head-to-head rounds with the chance of taking on adult GB Team athletes which is his dream. Next year - he aims to do this.
A final bit of exciting news is that Louie has been selected to take part in a GB selection competition at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in June 2016. This means that his scores in the 2015 outdoor season were good enough for him to be asked to come to the event to compete for a place on the GB team for the European Youth Championships in Romania.
  Onwards and upwards!      
  UPDATE 4# - 07/03/16:      
  Louis selected to represent Great Britain at the European Youth Cup in Heviz, Hungary, from 2-7 May.

Christmas Show 2015 - Aladdin ~ The Panto
Another successful Christmas Show here at JSTC and this year it was a pantomime; to be exact Aladdin, The Panto!  Staff, parents and visitors have been treated to two 5 star performances of Aladdin.  The story tells the story of a young peasant boy, Aladdin, who tries to win the heart of the beautiful Princess Jasmine, with a little help from two Genies, a Camel, a parrot and many more characters.  Things are made difficult with Jafar and his cronies about however Aladdin wins the heart of Princess Jasmine.  
After all the auditions, 30 students proved they were enthusiastic and energetic enough to create a cracking show. The back stage crew, lighting, actors and actresses, musicians, make up and hair designers all need to be congratulated on their outstanding efforts.  Student council was even involved to make a brew at half time.  Young enterprise even wanted to target the audience with their ‘goods’ to sell.  In total around 60 students were involved in the success of the production.
Mr Marriot, Mr Pritchard, Mr Taylor and Mr Connett adorned costumes, accents and songs in their roles to support the students with this fantastic show stopper.  Student teacher, Mr Ramirez with Mrs Cragg and Mrs Williams even wanted in on the action by providing the traditional staff dance.  Although Mr O’Farrell had retired he could not miss the opportunity to be involved in the show.
A massive thank you should go to all the students and staff involved for making this an excellent production, Mrs Appleyard for stepping in, to Mr Marriott, Mr Bishell and Mr Smith for all your help and support and to Mr Connett and Miss Herd for directing the production and ensuring it’s success.

Alford Manor House Christmas Extravaganza
  Young Enterprise students      
On Friday 4th December students from JSTC set up their Young Enterprise stall at the Alford Manor House Christmas Extravaganza, and sold to the public for the first time. Young Enterprise is a scheme where young people set up and run their own business, with the aim of making a profit.
There are many tasks the students have completed over the last few weeks. They had to come up with a business idea, a name, make their products and sell them.
After many discussions, the group decided to offer a ‘service’ of printing and framing photos from your phone and the business name they decided on was “Casa Mambo”; this means ‘home stuff’ in two different languages.
  The event at the Manor House was a great success, and the group are already operating at a profit!”      
Star Wars Technology Event

October saw over 200 year 6 pupils from 7 local primary schools visit JSTC to take part in the Star Wars Technology Challenge. The event involved building X Wing Fighter models and then launching them using a compressed air cannon at a Death Star target. Pupils also learned about how the model parts were manufactured using the laser cutter and vacuum forming machines.

The work produced was fantastic and pupils were proud to take home their completed X Wing Fighters. Certificates were awarded for excellence within design, accuracy and teamwork.

Cadwell Park mass Samba Band performance
  JSTC students at the mass Samba Band performance      
On Thursday 25 June the school Samba Band took part in a mass Samba performance at Cadwell Park to celebrate the British Cycling National Championships.  12 schools from around Lincolnshire attended and played together becoming the mass Samba Band.  In total there were over 600 performers in the mass Samba Band. 
Although it was very loud and noisy we managed to hear ourselves through the sound of the other performers.  As part of the event the students were also lucky enough to participate in a workshop held in school by a visiting Samba expert.  All the students involved enjoyed the workshop and came away looking forward to going to Cadwell Park.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the day at Cadwell Park even if we did return to school a little sunburnt.
Healthy Cereal Bar Technology Challenge
Our most recent event has seen 50 primary school pupils from Mablethorpe Academy visit JSTC to complete the Healthy Cereal Bar Technology Challenge. This even involved pupils taking part in three different activities.

  JSTC students have been working extremely hard to complete International School activities this year.      
Seven activities have been completed, including two with schools in different countries. One activity has seen our students exchange letters with a school in Spain, and our student council have completed projects with a school in Japan. Another activity saw students visit WW1 trenches in northern France to extend their learning in this area of Humanities.
  We have recently seen the annual event of “International Day” that is always a successful and enjoyable day for both students and staff. Other activities have seen themed tutor activities such as “Child Soldiers” and “Challenging Racism” undertaken. JSTC has also recently made a link with a school in Sri Lanka with a view to carrying out projects together into the new school year.      
  A huge 'thank you' goes to all those involved in the planning and running of these wonderful events.      
Bloodhound Technology Challenge
A recent event saw over 300 pupils from local primary schools visit JSTC to take part in the Bloodhound SSC Technology Challenge.

Red Nose Day 2015
  Red Nose Day 2015      

Red Nose Day 2015 at JSTC was another successful fund-raising event, and bought with it the usual array of RED garments and paraphernalia (ties, glasses, hats etc.), while one or two students took the plunge and arrived with RED hair!?  There were competitions, a cake sale and even a TV-style Bake Off to enable students to engage with the day, which resulted in a very respectable £225 being raised for the Comic Relief Charity. Well done to all.

  Red Nose Day - Images from the day.      
The winning student cake was May Woodward, while the winner of the student lucky dip and the tub of sweets was Poppy McLennan – congratulations to both girls.
Many thanks to Lucy Paul and Bethany Lyons for their cake entries, and a special thanks to all the staff who entered cakes in the Selfie-Cake Competition, and to the judges who forced themselves to try all the cakes … poor things! Congratulations to both Miss Hickson and Mr Hatton for winning Selfie-Cakes.

Show Jumping Success for JSTC students
  National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) competition      
YEAR 10 JSTC student Emily Sanderson has been crowned Lincolnshire county show jumping champion after representing the college at the National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) competition.
Emily, who was one of four JSTC pupils at the event at Arena UK, near Grantham, on February 22, took part in the 1m Open class on her two ponies, Castle Baldwin Golden Arrow and Lenny Kravitz.
She produced a solid round on Arrow before picking up four faults for a refusal at the penultimate fence, but during her second round on Lenny Kravitz, Emily jumped clear in a fast-enough time to earn her first place in the field of more than 25 riders from Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Emily now holds the title of County Champion and will go on to represent the college and Lincolnshire at the County Finals at Buckinghamshire’s Bury Farm in April.
Tayla Anderson (Year 11) had earlier led off the quartet, competing in the 50cm and 60cm classes in the Grass Roots event. Despite the early start, Tayla and her pony Tink produced two positive rounds, performing well and gaining valuable experience in a bigger competition than the pairing are used to.
Faith Barker (Year 11) and Maisie Johnson (Year 10) made up the JSTC contingent, this time in the NSEA Cortaflex County Challenge Show Jumping competition.
Both girls competed in a large field of more than 60 riders in the 80cm Novice class, Faith on her pony Blue Lady and Maisie riding her pony Annagh Gold. Again, both pairings produced encouraging performances and enjoyed the new experiences.

Leicester Tigers Coaching Clinic with JSTC Students
On the morning of the European Rugby Champions Cup match against French visitors Toulon, Leicester Tigers held a Coaching Clinic where students worked on their individual and team skills with the Tigers coaches, met players for a question-and-answer session and then joined a 22,000 strong crowd at Welford Road to watch the big match.
The Coaching Clinic tailored their session to the needs of the JSTC students identified beforehand by the PE Team; it was all handling skills but they also did work on running lines. Our students certainly improved throughout the practice.
However, our students couldn’t wait for the experience of being out on the pitch itself and this will be something that will live with them for a long, long time!
Opening Minds - Student Garden
  Opening Minds - Student Garden 2014      
Since the beginning of term the Opening Minds team have successfully planted a new garden outside the Maths block and improved the vegetable garden at the side of the canteen.  This has been an excellent example of improving students’ skills in team work creativity and keeping to a deadline.  We are all looking forward to a lovely display of flowers in the spring.
The Y7 homework projects continue to build on the creativity and innovations of previous years. In particular, Larissa Vickers, Holly Aizlewood, Megan Clark, Sophie Lysaght and Lucy Dent have produced outstanding creations for which they will receive Head Accommodations and prizes in the whole school assembly. Well done girls!
JSTC ‘Reading Buddy’ scheme
  Reading Buddy Group      
We would all agree how important it is for children to develop a love of books and reading, without which it would be difficult to access many areas of everyday life.
  As a college, we are always looking for ways to:      
  • Help all students to become better readers and
  • Increase interest and enjoyment in books.
With this in mind, Mrs Cahalin, Lead Practitioner for Literacy, has launched a ‘Reading Buddy’ scheme within the college to support some of our new Y7 students.
Each week, 17 Y7 students meet with their Y9 Reading Buddy, who read with them and help them to improve their reading skills through sharing and discussing books. The Y9 students are all committed to this scheme and have had training to help them be effective mentors to our younger students.
  We are very proud of our students for giving up their time to take part in this valuable initiative.

Record breaking results at John Spendluffe for 2014
  Results Day 2014      
The tradition of consistent success enjoyed by students at John Spendluffe over many years has continued once again this summer with another set of excellent results. There was delight as the results came in with all previous records surpassed and John Spendluffe can report the best ever results in its history. All at John Spendluffe were particularly proud as this tremendous success comes against the background of increased rigour in examinations nationally. Notably, around 60% of our students achieved 5 A*-C GCSE grades including English and Mathematics. These fantastic results are evidence of the hard work and commitment of the students and dedicated staff and the continued support from parents.
In all key measures these are brilliant results and there were huge successes in individual subjects including strong performances in both English and Maths. Other GCSE courses, including the Sciences, Technology, Arts and Humanities enjoyed considerable success, reflecting the importance we attach to depth and breadth in our curriculum.
Once again 100% of students achieved recognised GCSE qualifications. We are proud that the basis of our results is achieved in rigorous GCSE subjects, with many of our students achieving 5 A*-C grades including English and Mathematics simply through GCSEs alone. Students at the school take quality vocational courses to enhance our strong GCSE curriculum where appropriate and results in these courses were equally as impressive. Behind these excellent overall figures there were numerous individual outstanding achievements, far too many to list them all but including:
  • Ellen Paice (11 GCSE passes, all at A*-B grade)
  • Sophie Harrison (11 GCSE passes, all at A*-B grade)
  • Brooke Brocklesby (11 GCSE passes at C grade or above, including 6 at A or A*)
  • Ben Clark (11 GCSE passes at C grade or above, including 5 at A or A*)
  • Genevieve Miller (11 GCSE passes at C grade or above, including 6 at A)
News of the excellent results adds further to the positive atmosphere at the school following last year’s highly successful Ofsted inspection. With the million pound plus investment on site, and an official opening of new facilities due in September; there is much to look forward to.
Recognition for JSTC's More Able and Talented commitment
  More Able & Talented Students      
Here at John Spendluffe, we have a commitment to supporting all students across the college. This week, we were very pleased to hear that we are the only school in Lincolnshire to have been awarded the Gold Star Award by Potential Plus for our commitment to nurturing students with high learning potential.
This status shows the school recognises the importance of supporting high ability students, and that the school has a commitment to work in partnership with parents and carers to maximise the potential of their able children.
  This year over 1/3 of our students achieved A*-A grades in their results, and our results were the best ever, with 60% of pupils achieving 5 A*- C including English and Maths.      
Our Gold School report states that our extra-curricular provision is particularly strong and that our commitment to high ability students is very apparent. For more information on how we cater for More Able and Talented learners, please our main MAT page (click here).
