Food Parcels for the Elderly

CCC Student at Morrisons

This term Year 9 Cope students decided they wanted to help the elderly at Christmas. However they decided that it should be a joint project that involved the local community. With this in mind they wrote letters to Morrisons, Asda and Aldi.

Not only did Morrisons reply to the letter but they donated a whole trolley of food to the student’s charity. The contents of the trolley included: canned food; packets of biscuits; dried rice and pasta, hot chocolate and tea bags.

The Cope students would like this opportunity to thank Morrisons for their generosity and help with this project.

We have also been contacted by Asda who have kindly offered to donate some food after the 1st of December.

Robery Courts and David Cameron meeting with Mr Slater (Assistant Headteacher), Mr Almgill (Business Manager) and Mr Booth (Executive Headteacher)

We recently welcomed Robert Courts, the Conservative candidate in the Witney by-election, and former Prime Minister David Cameron on their fact finding visit to the College.

Robert Courts and David Cameron met Mr Surrall and his Computing class and our year 9 students working with the Royal Navy Youth Engagement Team before meeting privately with the College leadership team to discuss the pressures and recent successes of the College and our federation as well as issues facing Carterton that a future MP would face.

After the visit, Mr Booth said

“We were delighted to host David Cameron and the Conservative candidate for Witney and West Oxfordshire, Robert Courts, at Carterton Community College this morning. We were really pleased they took such an interest in our expanding Sixth Form. I was impressed by the high quality of engagement and questions posed by our students to David and Robert. They visited our new Computer Science lab and dropped in on the Youth Engagement Team from the Royal Navy, who were leading a session on team building. We pride ourselves in providing  our students with the opportunity to interact with high quality successful professionals, in this case, politicians and personnel from our armed forces, as part of our ongoing drive to inspire high standards and high aspirations”.

The Jon Egging Trust/Blue Skies Programme

Did you know we are the first school in Oxfordshire to be working in partnership with the Jon Egging Trust. The trust was set up in 2011 following the tragic death of Red Arrows pilot Jon Egging during the Bournemouth Air Show.

14 of our students, have been selected using set criteria for the Blue Skies Programme. The aim of the programme is to increase skills and confidence which in turn will hopefully help them to achieve higher in school and then reach their future goals.  

It is a fantastic opportunity for these students – they will be involved in all kinds of on and off site activities such as Team Building, Low Ropes, Navigation Exercises, Communication Games, Dinghy Drills, Parachute Training and Flight Sim, as well as presenting their work to an audience of VIP guests at the end of January.
