University Applications Update

The UCAS university applications deadline is 15th January. Some early applicants are already receiving offers and we are delighted that two so far have been from Oxford University! We look forward to sharing more news of offers as our D2 students receive them.


Google Expeditions

This week we were extremely fortunate to be visited by the Google Expeditions team. Students had the opportunity to use the virtual reality goggles to view places such as a refugee camp in Lebanon and as far away as outer space! It was a great experience for them to be able to take a field trip to virtually anywhere in the world without leaving Jubilee Hall. You can find more details about Google Expeditions here.


'Film Skool' Premier

Last week, teachers, students and parents gathered at the Curzon Mayfair to watch the short films we created for our film school. Students wrote, produced, directed, and starred in their own original films, the diverse themes of which are testament to the limitless imagination the theatre department instills in its students. The films included Drip Drip, a psychological thriller about a group of friends covering up a murder and Satire Corner, which commented on the political whirlwind that plays out on our televisions every night. Eigo was a comedic take on cultural divides whilst Class A offered insight into the seedy sugar industry. I look forward to seeing what next year's students produce. - Nick D2 Student

Sports News

Welcome to the first Dwight sports' newsletter of 2017 Term 2. This week's sports newsletter is about the M4-M5 Dwight boys basketball game against King Alfred School.

Furthermore, Luke M4 had an outstanding performance scoring a few points. Moreover, Abdullah M4 also had an outstanding performance scoring and made some good rebounds. Finally Finley M2, the youngest player in the match, played very well at his position as point guard.
