An action-packed field day with the Royal Navy for CCF Cadets, who had to think on their feet with rising water levels. Their ship had been hit by a tornado and their task was to repair the damage and prevent it from sinking. Luckily the Royal Navy Cadets were in a large simulator at the RN’s Damage Repair Unit and the crisis was averted! A challenging and hugely enjoyable day.

They did it! Ten hours of cycling, covering 120 miles and raising over £1,000 for the Camelthorn Foundation for the girls' boarding house in Zimbabwe. Congratulations Oliver Roberts and Conan Lam!

The Year 10 students set off from school early yesterday morning for Bristol City Centre, travelling along towpaths and disused railways, stopping only for drinks and something to eat. Bath to Bristol proved the most challenging but the boys particularly enjoying the views and smooth road surfaces of the section from Kintbury to Devizes. Afterwards, Ollie said: "I don't think we would do the ride again any time soon, but maybe in the long future".

By personal request of 494 Fighter Squadron's Lieutenant Colonel, we were invited back to RAF Lakenheath today to take part in their Change of Command Ceremony. We were absolutely delighted to be able to be a part of this ceremony and play both the British and American National Anthems.

We have been fortunate enough to work with the Panthers on a couple of occasions, most recently being part of their 9/11 Memorial Service so to be able to do this and see the old Commander out and the new one in was an honour.

Pictured with the Commander. What a photo!

Fascinating and diverse subjects studied by students, as part of their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Gordon’s wider curriculum requires all students to select a ‘plus one’. Some 70 students in Year 12 chose to study an EPQ, which challenges them to choose a subject of interest, carry out detailed research before producing a 5,000 word essay, reflective production log and perform a presentation to an audience. They began the process in September and today submitted their project to their supervisor. Artificial intelligence in healthcare; ultra-processed foods; politics in Hong Kong; The Holodomor famine and the biggest impact in the lives of the Windrush generation, were just a few of dissertations handed in today. Pictured are some of the Sixth Form students and their dissertations with Head of Sixth Form Will Jones.

An unforgettable day for Year 8 students, who attended the Founder’s Day Parade at the The Royal Hospital Chelsea today with Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal reviewing the Parade of iconic Chelsea Pensioners. The students, dressed in their ceremonial Blues uniform, were chosen for their marching skills. The annual Parade in London remembers King Charles II who issued a Royal Warrant for the foundation of the hospital and commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to design it. Today’s Parade also coincided with the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings in France.
