  • Model United NationsĀ 

    Published 14/10/16

    On Wednesday 21st September, Farringtons participated in the Model United Nations (UN) held in Westminster at the Methodist Central Hall.


    We took three members of the Sixth Form who were part of the debating team and several young and energetic volunteers, who acted as intermediaries between participating nations.
    Farringtons School represented Greece throughout the day, a really important country considering what was discussed during the various sessions. The Model UN discussed the refugee crisis and the possibility of nuclear disarmament.


    It was a wonderful day and whilst it was great to contribute to the debate and it was even more rewarding to see the students really thriving and enjoying themselves in this sort of formal setting.

  • Boarding: Go Karting Fun

    Published 14/10/16

    On Sunday 2th September a group of boarders went to Go Karting in Brentwood, Essex.
    When we got there we had to make our own racer profile. We then had to put on special racing suits before we could race each other.
    We then had to watch a small safety video and one of the marshals told us about the rules. After a long wait, it was time to race!
    We next went on the race track and when everyone was ready, the green flag dropped and we raced. On average, we all did fifteen laps. It was fun and enjoyable.
    First place was secured by Kyle, followed by Diego coming in second position and Su in third. Thank you to Mr Suverkrop for taking us and capturing all the action!

  • Moon Rocks Land at Farringtons School

    Moon Rocks Land at Farringtons School


    Pupils throughout the School were able to view and handle lunar rocks and meteorites from the moon last week.
    Some 382kg of lunar material was brought back to Earth, most of it for use by scientists, but some has been made available for educational purposes by the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). This has included a 1.2 billion-year-old piece of Mars and a 4.3 billion-year-old nickel meteorite collected during some of NASA’s first manned space missions to the Moon.
    Whilst the NASA moon rocks were at Farringtons School all students in the Junior school were able to visit the Science Department and to see and touch the Moon Rocks. Senior school students had a Moon Rock lesson during Physics and were able to experience simulated meteorite collisions and handle the samples.
    Year 7 student Lilac Wilkins said, ‘‘I was amazed to be able to touch moon rocks and meteorites from millions of years ago. I felt honoured to hold such priceless objects and it’s definitely an experience that I will never forget.’
