Mathematics Challenge 2015
Congratulations go to Harriet Wintle (Y7) and Alex Morgan (Y10) who have received a Certificate of Merit and Certificate of Distinction for their entries in the University of Southampton Mathematics Challenge 2015. Students were set a series of problem solving questions that had to be completed independently over Half Term and marks were awarded for clarity of explanations as well as accuracy of solutions. Over 1600 students entered the competition and the top students were awarded prizes.
This is a fantastic achievement, well done Harriet and Alex!

“National recognition for Portchester
Community School’s musicians”
Portchester Community School’s Choir and World Orchestra performed in the regional heats of the Festival of Music for Youth in Aldershot in March. As a result of a stunning performance by 35 of our young students, we have now been invited to perform in the National Festival at the Sir Adrian Boult Concert Hall in Birmingham on Thursday 9th July. We hope to take a group of 50 young performers from Portchester to perform in this prestigious event. It will provide the opportunity to celebrate the musical talents of many of our young people in a major national festival.
If you would like to hear the group, we have also been invited to perform on the main stage at Southampton’s Mela Festival on Saturday 11th July and at the Ferneham Hall on Monday 20th July at the Portchester Performing Arts Festival.
