A Leicester City Poem

Leicester City’s incredible success has inspired David Jenkinson in Year 7 to put ‘pen to paper’ and write this poem – we hope you enjoy it!

It’s OK when you’re doing well,

At the top of the league and winning,

But oh the sorrow of defeat,

It takes away any grinning.


Blame the players, the manager, the boss,

‘Coz staying up is all that matters,

No one wants to drop a league,

You can hear the fan’s hearts shatter.


While the Magpies struggle,

The Foxes fly from Championship to Prem

The fans are screaming,

The manager’s dreaming,

And the players are earning a gem.

David Jenkinson, Year 7

School Uniform

Our school uniform provider Emblematic have opened a new self-service shop in Bedlington.

The new Emblematic branch will be open six days a week during the school summer holidays. The second self-service shop will be open from 12pm-5pm Wednesdays and 10am-4pm Saturdays during winter, while extended opening hours will provide much-needed relief on the existing Emblematic store on the North Tyneside Industrial Estate during the busy summer period, improving convenience and reduce waiting times.

Our uniforms can only be purchased through the Bedlington store. You can order online or purchase in-store.

The address of the new store is:
Emblematic (Bedlington)
30 Glebe Road
NE22 6JT

More information can be found on their website.

Ensemble Evening – Wednesday 27th April


The Chantry and Newminster ensembles were joined by the King Edward VI School Community Jazz Band on Wednesday 27th April to perform in a Musical Ensemble Evening.

There were performances from the joint middle schools Jazz Band, Ceilidh Band, Samba Band, Guitar Ensembles and Steel Pan Bands along with a guest performance from the KEVI Community Jazz Band with a finale of the Joint Three Rivers Jazz Band playing ‘Rolling in the Deep’.

The night was a fantastic showcase of the wonderful musicians who are pupils at our Three Rivers Schools and members of the Morpeth community.

Well done to all performers and thank you to the instrumental tutors for all of their hard work.
