  • District Athletics Results

    Published 25/05/17

    Over forty Ely College students represented the school at the Annual District Athletics Championships in King's Lynn last week.

    Our students from Years 7 to 10, who competed in a full range of Olympic athletic events, performed magnificently; showing their talent and determimnation as they battled it out with pupils from Witchford Village College, Neale Wade Academy and Cromwell Community College,  King’s Ely, Thomas Clarkson and Wisbech Grammar.

    Ely College athletes performed superbly on the day and we want to thank them for their hard work. We have traditionally managed to field a strong and full team and whilst this year saw us take more competitors than ever, it was disappointing to have a number of our most talented athletes drop out on the day.

    This said a final 4th place finish behind the two private schools in the Isle and Witchford did not leave us too disappointed. Missing out on the plate to Witchford for the first time in three years hurt, but we are hungry for next year and have our eyes on the prize!

    Special mention for standout performances and winners must go to:

    Year 7 David Horn 1st Javelin

    Year 7 Tegan Bowen 1st Shot Putt

    Year 7 Thomas Martin 1st Shot Putt

    Year 8 Lucy Wittaker 2nd Hurdles and Long Jump

    Year 8 Lara Faulkes 2nd in 800m

    Year 7 James Marsh 1st 400m

    Year 7 Kyle Islam 1st in the Hurdles

    Year 8 Hayden Jones 1st in the Javelin

    Year 8 Kian Smith 2nd in the High Jump

    Year 8 Henry Olley 2nd in 800m

    Year 8 Alex Oakhill 2nd in 1500m

    As a result of the performances in this competition, the following pupils have been selected for the District Athletics Team due to compete at the County Championship on Saturday 27th May in Cambridge:

    Year 9 Javelin Josh Stacey

    Year 9 1500m Jacob Bell

    Year 10 Discus Evelina Vorobjvaite

    Year 10 Javelin Adrian Chalmers

    Year 10 High Jump Dechlan Linney

    We wish them all good luck!

  • Uniform Fact Sheet

    Published 12/05/17

    Conclusion to the 2017 Ely College Uniform Consultation

    Back in September 2016, we recognised that to change the uniform entirely as CMAT came in, would place a burden on families and would not give us the time to properly consult on different views. We have therefore been consulting through 2016/17 with a view to a full uniform change in September 2017.

    We have valued your comments and taking them into consideration as we work with the Student Council and the feedback they gained from the Student Voice. As a result we now have a Uniform Fact Sheet to share with you. This is the final decision following the consultation.

    Please download the Uniform Fact Sheet here.

  • Trip to Bletchley Park

    Published 03/05/17

    Thanks to colleagues, parents and students who made the ICT trip to Bletchley park a successful day. Students enjoyed their interactions with various WW2 artefacts and cipher interception to unravel Hitler’s WW2 plans.

    As we toured the rather vast site capturing detailed historical facts, students, especially KS3 students were on their best behaviour. The excitement, enthusiasm and positive demeanour were maintained throughout the trip, and several students said they would be looking forward to another visit to Bletchley Park.

    It was also lovely to receive positive messages from parents regarding their children’s experiences at Bletchley Park and we will plan another educational visit to Bletchley Park and other Computer Science places of interest in the near future.

    We look forward to seeing students’ experiences at Bletchley Park contribute towards their growing passion for Computer Science and other subjects. As follow up to the trip we would like to encourage more students (especially girls) to develop more interest in Computer Science by attending the Computing Club on Mondays after school in NG7.
