On Thursday 29th of June we had Dr Kiran Martin, founder of the Asha project, visit The Gryphon. This charity helps people in the slums of Delhi, with particular emphasis on education and healthcare. With her was Chandan, who despite many challenges is now completing a Master’s degree in Pure Mathematics. They had a tour of the school and were blown away by our facilities, our ethos and the creativity and insight of our students. Our guests spoke to students who are hoping to travel to work in the Asha project as part of a joint schools venture with the Girls School and Leweston. Meeting someone who had been helped by this project really fuelled their desire to go, and they are now completing their applications. Dr Martin and Chandan spoke to Year 7, who have been learning about child labour and barriers to education in RE. Our students were greatly moved by Chandan’s story; one of hope, and were inspired by what he has achieved. They went on to create display work based on the Asha values.

We are holding a Mental Health for Children and Young People Conference, to explore what we, as a community, feel the needs and issues to be, identify what we are already doing and discuss how we can work together more effectively and productively. We would especially welcome your view as a parent or carer.

Welcome

Nicki Edwards, Headteacher

We are very proud of our school which attracts students from around North and West Dorset as well as South Somerset. The School became an academy on 1 August 2012. We are a Church of England School, but as the secondary school for all children, our religious character is highly inclusive, embracing those of all faiths and of no faith.
