Bournemouth: Here we come!

#Bournemouth2K17 is happening, and students have arrived safely at the Southern Coast of England, and have already visited some of the sites on the agenda!

Accompanied by three members of staff (Ian Vogel [Geography & Travel & Tourism teacher], Dean Collins [Sports teacher] and Gill Moss [Maths teacher and Deputy Vice Principal), the students climbed aboard the mini-bus in the morning to start their trip!

By their first day, they had already visited West Bay in Dorset, which features in hit TV series Broadchurch. They've also been to Durdle Door too! Their trip also included visits to the Jurassic Coast, Chesil Beach (the UK's largest tombolo) and Stonehenge on their return.

Deanna reaches for the stars in Power Lifting Competition!

Deanna Dawkins joined Cadbury College in 2015 from Lyndon School, studying Applied Science and Business Studies, achieving a Distinction Star and Distinction in her first year exams last summer.  Her academic successes are not her only acolades though - Deanna is also a keen sportswoman, competing nationally and now internationally in power lifting!
