On Tuesday, 21st March 2017. Year 10 pupils took part in a challenging focus day. The day was split into different sessions which specialised in different topics. Springfield teaching staff ran sessions on drugs, risk taking, mental health and career profiling. CRAGRATS also lead sessions on presentation skills and personal branding. Pupils also took part in mock interviews. Local business volunteers from IBM, Manpower, SSE and Highbury College kindly gave up their day to hold the mock interviews. Each pupil was interviewed for 20 minutes and also received a 10 minute feedback from their assigned business volunteer. This was a great chance for pupils to experience first hand what it is like to be interviewed, to think about the way they present themselves, communicate, and most importantly learn how they can improve their interview techniques. A huge thank you to all the companies who took part in the day and well done to the Year 10 pupils who should be proud of themselves for embracing this experience so enthusiastically.
Mr Lomas, Head of Enterprise and PDL
The VLE area of the school's website was externally 'hacked' yesterday evening; a 'redirect' was introduced which automatically diverted users to a different and inappropriate website. The IT team disabled this as soon as it was known and are investigating the cause. The school has reported this to the relevant authorities as it is criminal activity. Apologies for any inconvenience caused to website users while this incident is being investigated and resolved.
To all Year 11 pupils, parents and carers
Please find below the GCSE timetable which details all of the GCSE exam times and dates.
Congratulations to the Springfield performers at this week's 'Soundsational' concert at the Guildhall. Our singers and Year 10 rock musicians thoroughly enjoyed this performance opportunity and the audience certainly thought they all sounded 'soundsational'!

Well done to the Year 11 boys' football team who beat Hounsdown 4-2 to reach the final of the Hampshire cup! Three goals from Stuart Mcconnachie, 11N, and one from Tom Dinsmore, 11D, secured the win, with some excellent defending from the back four. An all round exceptional performance, well done boys!
