Here at Longbenton we are extremely proud of two of our students. On Thursday Ella Davidson and Andreia Campos were chosen as mascots for the England v Italy Rugby game at St James' Park which is taking place on Friday 6 September. The girls have followed the RFU schools' pathway for rugby, whereby they started playing in school and soon became involved in competitions which, in turn, has led them to represent the local club Novocastrians. The girls were escorted by our very talented PE Teacher and year 11 Leader Mrs Cooper. The interview can be seen on the BBC iPlayer under Look North for Thursday 5 September evening programme.

Four Year 9 students were selected to perform in Stratford upon Avon with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Longbenton girls and students from Sacred Heart performed alongside other schools and created a final version of Romeo and Juliette in the RSC's Playmaking Festival. Each school had rehearsed a scene and under the direction of the RSC an amazing play was put together.
Two students Lauren Archer (Y13) and Sophie McCarthy(Y11) were proud winners of the prestigious Mike Baker Award through their involvement with the Tyneside Villiers Park STEM Scholars scheme which has been running now in school for 4 years. Many other schools are involved but both Lauren and Sophie have been recognised for their continuous positive and hardworking attitude in their studies throughout the year, as well as their dynamic and enthusiastic approach to Villiers Park activities. In fact, this is the second time that Lauren has won the award, she did so back in year 10. Both students are progressing on to the next stage of their academic careers. Lauren is pursuing a Chemistry degree at university whilst Sophie is staying on into Sixth Form at Longbenton to take A levels in Chemistry, Maths and Biology. We wish both students every success in their next step. Well done!”
