‘Britain’s Manliest Man’ Visits The School

We had a great assembly this morning by IMG_3127Britain’s Manliest Man
– RAF officer and testicular cancer survivor Flight Lieutenant Alun “Peps” Pepper 43, who visited the school to talk to the Year 10 students.

He was crowned “Britain’s Manliest Man” fighting off more than 1,000 fellow applicants to win the nationwide competition, which was organised by a men’s grooming brand, fitness magazine and cancer charity.

Alun, originally from Crewe, spoke to the students about how he became an RAF fighter pilot and the determination it took after several knock backs.  He also spoke to the boys about his testicular cancer and raised their awareness of the disease.IMG_3132

Sandbach School Young Geographer of the Year

The Royal Geological Society runs a national competition every year to find budding young geographers.  The topic this year is all about ‘Why does Antarctica matter?’ in recognition of it being 100 years since Sir Ernest Shakleton’s brave attempt at being the first to cross Antarctica. We had outstanding entries from over 50 students – well done to all that submitted posters that explored why Antarctica still matters today.
