This year Wadebridge School held their annual Foodbank Friday in December to collect donations for the special Foodbank Christmas boxes, which provide food and Christmas treats for families in need in the local community. The collection was a massive success, so thank you to all students and parents who donated.

Last November we held a series of assemblies about the Food Bank and today Wadebridge School has taken donations:

Congratulations to Wadebridge School's Lego robotic club who demonstrated amazing ingenuity, creativity and teamwork to win the southwest regional robotics competition. They built and programmed robots designed to complete  a variety of tasks as well as writing and delivering a presentation to a panel of engineers and RAF officers. Our pupils also received a special mention from the organisers of the competition for how polite and friendly they were to everyone at the competition. They are now preparing to compete at the UK finals at the Big Bang fair at the NEC in Birmingham.

Christmas Shoebox Appeal 

A huge thank you to all those children, parents and staff who donated all items for this appeal last year. Thanks to your generosity we were able to fill 60 boxes to send as gifts to underprivileged children. We will be running this again this Christmas.

Photos of our Week with the Young Americans


At the Big Bang National Science and Engineering Competition, Year 10 CREST boys took part in breaking a world record, to pass 10L of water along a pupil chain of 200 pupils for water aid, well done boys. The blue wigs were compulsory, but meeting Jason Bradbury made up for that!

Well done to CREST award Year 10 boys at the Big Bang National Science and Engineering Competition. Sadly no prizes but a brilliant performance and a great opportunity to represent Wadebridge School at such a prestigious event. Click here for photos.

North Cornwall Secondary Schools Collaborative Approach to Drug Education

We have been working in partnership with Bodmin College, Sir James Smith’s School and Devon and Cornwall Police to coordinate a planned drug education programme across all three schools. The Police have delivered special assemblies this term to all students in the schools with a purpose to educate them about the harmful effects of drug use, the law surrounding illegal drugs and the powers of detection involving the use of a Passive Drug Dog. The Police will visit each school again during this academic year with a Police dog to carry out unannounced spot checks to help promote the message that schools should be drug free.

EmPower Plus Charity Fund Raising Event

Wadebridge School offer a student support service called EmPower Plus. This service is run by a group of Year 10 students. 
The role of the EmPower Plus mentors is to offer support to students in Year 7, 8 and 9 by offering help and advice at the lunchtime drop in centre.  As well as the regular lunchtime drop in's, EmPower Plus also offers a confidential email and text service, where students can contact them for help or support. The EmPower Plus Team decided to raise awareness of their service and raise money for a local charity at the same time. The charity they chose was Children's Hospice South West. They managed to raise a very respectable £615.00.
Sarah Stott, Senior Community Fundraiser for CHSW said “On behalf of everyone at CHSW, I would like to say a huge thank you to the students at Wadebridge School for raising such a fantastic amount for us through their non-school uniform day.   It really is wonderful that these young people have chosen to do something to help other children. Their generous donation will make such a huge difference to the children and families that we support at Little Harbour - thank you so much!"


Fundraising for FLEET

At Wadebridge school following demonstrations by the local charity FLEET, on how to use a defibrillator, Miss Bassett’s tutor group were inspired to hold a cake sale to raise money for the charity.  In one day students from 9CBT managed to raise £183 for FLEET in support of the Cornwall defibrillator project.  Pictured are students from 9CBT with Miss Bassett (left hand side) and Anne Rundle (centre) receiving the cheque on behalf of FLEET.
