Non Denbigh students, parents and other attendees please e-mail email@example.com for bookings
We welcomed teams from across Milton Keynes to Denbigh on Thursday 6th March for the eagerly awaited Technology Tournament which is organised by The Rotary club. Schools were represented in three different age categories, with Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 teams all taking part.
This year they were given a brief to design and build a method of moving a radioactive meteorite (tennis ball) from a distance of 1.5m from one location to another using only wood, cardboard, string and elastic bands. The teams acquitted themselves really well and came up with some remarkable ideas. The Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Brian White, was in attendance to lend his support and the day was a fantastic experience for those taking part.
The Denbigh teams performed extremely well and two of our teams were placed in the top 3 with our Key Stage 5 team taking 1st place in their challenge. Well done to the following students who represented the School at the Tournament: KS3 team (Year 9 students); Paige, Callum, Daniel and Tiegan. KS4 team (Year 10 students); Ariane , Elise , Robert and Emma. KS5 team (Year 12 students); Francesca, Zoe, Maximilian and Harry.
Well done to the Winners:
- KS3 Ousedale
- KS4 St Pauls
- KS5 Denbigh

KS4 Curriculum Evening
COMPETITION BOOSTS BUSINESS SKILLS
Out of approximately sixty schools that competed for the East Midlands Regional Final of the Real Business Challenge, Denbigh finished as one of the top ten teams. On the day of the event, Friday 7th February, our team took the opportunity to work on a live project with a business mentor from Coca Cola Enterprises Ltd. Our team included the following Year 10 students; Alastair Bunting, Adam Campbell-Drew, Derrion Domaradzki, Prince Moyo, Jake Puddephatt, Michael Rennick, Jacob Weinbren and Leon White.
The live project involved developing a digital campaign to raise awareness of StreetGames, the sport charity that brings sport to the doorstep of young people in disadvantaged communities across the UK. The campaign aims to increase participation in the forthcoming StreetGames Multi-Sports Festival at the Copper Box in London’s Olympic Park. Our team chose to focus their campaign on handball which is one of the four sports that will be available at the Festival. The campaign had to appeal to and give young people a reason to get involved. The team worked extremely hard to stringent deadlines and produced a viral video, a poster, an App and a campaign budget summary of £400k. They also gave an enthusiastic four minute PowerPoint presentation which highlighted their completed tasks and included a section on ‘Blue Sky Thinking’ – what to do further with the campaign if money was not an issue. This was presented to a panel of judges made up of representatives from Coca Cola Enterprises Ltd, British Chambers of Commerce, Peace and Sports and StreetGames.
The team did not get through to the National Final but found that the challenge has helped them to develop a range of business skills that will provide them with a competitive edge in today’s job market. It gave them the opportunity to deepen their understanding of business and to experience how challenges are best managed.
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio and Meningitis C injections will take place for all Year 10 and some Year 11 students on Friday 14th February 2014 and Friday 28th March 2014. These dates replace the ones that are on the school calendar for the end of January 2014.
