Bayside's 50th Anniversary
Bayside School, at the old site on Bayside Road, opened its doors as a modern comprehensive school in September 1972. This academic year is the school's 50th anniversary and we want to celebrate this important birthday with an event which brings our school community together.
We will be selling food and drinks and all the proceeds of these sales will be donated to three different charities.

Today students and teachers participated in Bayside’s 2nd Dapper Day and raised over £200 for Clubhouse Gibraltar in support of the Gentleman’s Ride Gibraltar. Prizes for most dapper student and teacher went to Gael Diaz and Paul Perez respectively.
Well done to all those who supported this initiative.
Bayside organised a funfair on the podium to celebrate King Charles III's coronation. We had a number of fun activites as well as some baked goodies which we sold to raise money for different charities which the school supports. Luckily we also had a great deal of volunteers who were willing to give up their time to help make it a great day for our young people - in keeping with the King's drive to volunteer your time! Thanks everyone for their efforts.
Star Wars Day
Star Wars Day proved to be great fun! Some staff and students dressed up and all Key Stage 3 form classes participated in the lightsaber competition. Each form class made a lightsaber with upcycled materials and the form tutors competed against each other. Ms Bishop from year 8 and Mr Duarte from year 7 were the finalists with Ms Bishop the ultimate winner. The winning form class then partook of the goodies inside the Death Star piñata carefully made by Mr Osborne.
It was all great fun and an opportunity to have a laugh.
Bayside A-Level Art Students work with Bishop Fitzgerald - Well-being Benches Project
Bayside were approached by Bishop Fitzgerald to work on this project. Bishop Fitzgerald had an internal competition where the students had to design a well-being bench. A winner was selected from each year group - years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Our A-Level art students then recreated each of the winning designs on a bench.
It was lovely to work with our colleagues in Bishop Fitzgerald and for our students to showcase their work.
I would like to thank all the parents and pupils for attending our options talk and the attached subjects fair. We hope it was useful to our students and helps them make the best possible choices.

Commonwealth Essay Competition
Year 7 Castle Project
There were some amazing creations from our Year 7s. They have been studying medieval castles and they were tasked with building models and trying to incorporate all the different things they had learned about the castles. It was great to see so many of the castles' features incorporated in the models.
Well done to the students and their teachers!
It was difficult to make a choice but in the end it was:

History students who had received the students of the month award went on a guided trip to the Northern Defences. It was a great morning out!
