West Midlands Schools Athletics Championships – Libby-Ann Davies


We reported last month that Libby had finished second in the Dudley Schools Athletic Championships Long Jump….

Well on Saturday 10th June Libby competed against other qualifiers from all schools in the West Midlands at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham!

Libby finished a respectable 7th place and had a great day!

It was worth noting that Libby had been practicing, in her own time, all week and had a personal best jump of 3.80m, on the day Libby’s biggest jump was 3.60m, her PB would have put her in the TOP 3!!!

It might sound strange mentioning this but it’s good to learn what pressure can do to you and how it can affect performance, both sporting and academic. Libby has learnt this at a very early stage in her school life and I’m CERTAIN she will benefit from the experience next time she encounters pressure, whether it be exams, tests or other sporting competitions. It proved to be a good couple of days for Libby who had, on Friday 9th June, been awarded Student of the Half Term by her Head of Year, Miss Hatton.

Well done Libby, we are all very proud of you!!!

Crestwood Students Visit Worcester University


On 17th May 2017 Ms. Barnbrook accompanied 16 Crestwood Students on a visit to Worcester University.

Below you can read some accounts of the day from Ms. Barnbrook and a selection of students.

Despite the heavy rain and the mini bus steaming up due to excited students, the whole group had an enjoyable day meeting the Tutors, exploring the campus, discovering a wide range of courses on offer. It was a pleasure to see all students getting involved with the question time getting the most out of their day. I am proud of how they represented Crestwood and made the most of the experience. Well done Crestwood. Ms Barnbrook

My experience at Worcester University was exciting and very enjoyable. I have been given a chance to look at the university and decide on my options that I choose in year nine, to gain the best qualification for college which will lead to university. The day trip answered all my questions such as – What courses are available? Do I have to pay? If so how much is it? Overall it was a great experience.

By Taylor Massey.

My experience at the University was fun and full of good information about the future, helping me to decide what’s best for me, when I choose a university. I also looked at the courses that are now on offer and how I can get the best out of my current education, to get me where I would like to be in the future, overall it was an enjoyable day..

Year 8 Student

I enjoyed my time at Worcester University it was a very valuable trip and we all learnt about becoming a student at Worcester University from cost, accommodation, friendships and courses. We had a small tour even though it rained the whole time, it was still enjoyable. I’m glad I went and I am definitely thinking about my future.

By Mollie Sanders.

My experience at the University was positive, I have learnt a lot from how much it costs, I could do a part-time job in between my learning. The subjects on offer allow you lots of opportunities from trips abroad, field trips and work experience. The whole day was enjoyable and I learnt a lot about Uni life on campus.

By Jolin Slater

When I went to the open day at Worcester University, I really enjoyed it. The staff were really friendly, the canteen was very nice and the food on offer. I got to learn about life on the campus and the accommodation for students, what type of room s they have on offer. It has helped me to think more about my options and begin to build on my future.
