Twenty-four young anglers from across the UK were recognised at the House of Commons yesterday (15 November) in the Fishing for Schools Champions Awards.
Of those twenty-four, two were from our school. Jack Care-Slade and Natasha Harris, both from Pink class.
Fishing for Schools is an initiative run by The Countryside Alliance Foundation, the charitable arm of the Countryside Alliance. It provides short angling courses to schools across the country, to aid the education of 12 to 18-year-olds who may not respond to traditional classroom-based learning but flourish when you get them outside onto the water. It celebrates its tenth anniversary this year.

On Thursday 6th June, HRH the Countess of Wessex and other esteemed guests visited the Mendip School.
HRH was greeted by our School Principal Emily Massey who then gave all guests a tour of the school, demonstrating all of the hard work and effort our children are putting into their learning.
The tour included children taking part in sensory play, food technology, art and music therapy. All children were delighted to speak with their special guest and were very proud to show off their work to her.
Below are some photos of the day.
