Students from this school will be making more news for real on 10 March 2016 as they take part in BBC News School Report again. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later. In the meantime, take a look at what our students produced with Mrs Price last year.

Teacher torture to raise money for charity

Every Christmas at Ripley for charity week, each form and every pupil does something to raise money for a number of local, national and international charities.

This fund-raising happens in a number of ways, such as bakes sales and sweet stalls, to sporting events and challenges. However form 10 Exton went one step further to raise money for charity with… I’M A TEACHER, GET ME OUT OF HERE!

The aim of the challenge was for six brave teachers to sit at the front of the gym, and be presented with a variety of bugs over 5 rounds. Each round the teachers were given bigger critters to eat… the challenges were mealworms, crickets, a locust, a Thailand water beetle and finally a cocktail challenge including guts and gore from all the different bugs.

All the teachers bravely managed to complete all 5 rounds, with Mr Salthouse completing the final challenge in the fastest time to be crowned the king! This event happened on the 18th of December 2014 and still, in 2015, Mrs Price has revealed that she still can’t eat a seed without it reminding her of the texture of a bug.

In the end 10 Exton raised a whopping £146 for charity which all went to a good cause… well done 10 Exton, and the brave teachers who took part!

The teachers, ready to begin their challenge!

Samuel’s Summer Fashion Article

We all want to know the latest fashion but I’m here to tell you about what’s in and out.
Luminous, Floral, stretch and high tops those four words are basically going to get you through the summer.

First of all luminous is amazing but a little ‘look at me in the luminous’ so it’s good to have some luminous sneakers or sandals with some gold hoops, sports shorts, a vest and a funky jumper. This is something everyone will dig. That’s a good thing because you’ll be at the top of the fashion do’s and not at the top of don’ts.

Floral is a really nice material but in summer there is a lot. That doesn’t matter, fashion is all about expression and being who you are. In summer the best floral clothes are maxi dresses. So a good outfit would be a floral maxi dress with some beige sandals and a purse. A good pair of funky sunglasses would go perfectly.

Stretch is a really well fitted piece of clothing. For summer if you really want to blow peoples mind you should wear a gorgeous stretch skirt a nice sleeveless tank top and some platform sandals. Also a nice bag would go well (preferably a long strap).

High tops. We all like them but if you’re going to wear them for summer you’d better wear a pair of rough high tops with some short shorts and a frilly top.

Now you know what to wear for summer. Enjoy!
