  • A Friendly Fixture...

    A Friendly Fixture...
    18th March 2014

    On Monday night, Cumberland hosted two Tennis teams from the Coopers Company & Coborn School in Upminster for a friendly fixture. In Tennis terms, Coopers are now recognised as the best State School in the country, and last week competed in the National Schools Tennis finals at Bolton Arena, finishing 5th overall, so this was an excellent test for our Year 8 & 9 teams and Iím proud to say that, whilst the result was a comprehensive victory for Coopers (they won 12-0 in both the year 8 & the year 9 matches), the Cumberland boys kept battling to the end, and the games themselves were tight, with a lot of deuces and break point opportunities for both sides. Particular credit must go to Ilaman Annagurbanov, who showed excellent fighting spirit and determination in both his matches. Facing three match points in his final service game, he still battled back to deuce, but lost 6-4 on his fourth match point. Pics attached, full results below. Rgds, Gary.

  • KS3 Aspire to Achieve Day

    KS3 Aspire to Achieve Day
    5th March 2014

    The second Aspire to Achieve day for the 2013/2014 academic year has been very successful and has now become more established within the school curriculum for all pupils and staff. The day which took place on the 4th March was received with positive attitudes all round and proved to demonstrate the vision we have at Cumberland to contribute to the personal development of all our pupils. Year 7ís were improving their key skills for personal development and included:  Develop the strategies for resisting unhelpful peer influence and pressure  Identify how managing feelings and emotions effectively supports decision-making and managing risk  Use social skills to build and maintain a range of positive relationships Year 8ís and 9ís were improving their key skills for personal development and included:  To identify and use strategies for setting and meeting personal targets in order to increase motivation.  Assess and manage the element of risk in personal choices and situations KS3 pupils had the opportunity to improve these skills through attending various workshops which were delivered by outside agencies. All pupils recognised the importance of learning these skills and the impact of these programmes are evident in the way the pupils conducted themselves in the workshops and around the school, these could be seem in the dramatic drop in negative referrals. Well done, KS3! Ms Bailey Read More
