Year 6 visit Amex Stadium

On Friday the 26th of January, Year 6 went on a Geography trip to the Amex Stadium, the home of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.

When we arrived, our first task was to find out which Premier League stadium had the highest capacity. It was Tottenham Hotspurs, who are playing their matches this season at Wembley Stadium. Second was Manchester United who play at Old Trafford. The Amex has a capacity of 30,750.

We went on a stadium tour, which as a season ticket holder, I was most excited about. Being in the home changing room where my idols sit was a brilliant experience. The home changing room was very different to the away changing room and we learned about the psychology used when away teams arrive on match days.

The stadium is built below ground level to help reduce the noise on match days and so it doesn’t standout on the South Downs, an area of natural beauty. The stadium has very good transport links. There is Falmer station right next to the stadium and lots of bus routes and park & rides. The cost of transport is included in the ticket price for the match… you can even get a bus from Tunbridge Wells for free.

The Amex is a community stadium and they try to be echo friendly. All the lights are motion sensitive to save electricity, the food is sourced locally which helps the local farmers and businesses and the soil dug out to build the stadium was spread on local fields to reduce pollution from transporting it away.

It was a fantastic trip, thank you to Mrs Morgan for organising it.

Come on you Seagulls!

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

12 March 2020

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.

Year 2 visit to Tonbridge castle

26 January 2018

As part of Year 2’s topic ‘Turrets and Tiaras’ we visited Tonbridge Castle last week. It was a Motte and Bailey castle which has had a stone castle built on it since the 11th century. We explored the stone keep and learnt all about the features of a castle such as murder holes, the portcullis, arrow slits, and the Great Hall. We played some old castle games and climbed up the motte to keep a look out for any enemies! It was a fantastic trip, enjoyed by all.

Bede's Galactic Challenge

26 January 2018

Students from Years 7 & 8 took part in Bede’s School Galactic Challenge Day on Saturday 20 January. This is the third time the competition has been held and our participating students were excited about the brief they had received just 24 hours previously: they would be building a subterranean Martian research base in the year 2060. Our students were put into a company called Solaris along with students from three other schools. In total there were four competing companies totally just over one hundred year 7 & 8 students.  After a welcome speech from the Deputy Head of Bede’s the students were whisked off by Sixth Formers who were to act as their CEO for Solaris. The accompanying staff were told clearly that we were not to help in any way – the students were on their own!
