Here are some of the winners of the annual KS3 MFL carnival mask competition organised by Mrs Smith.
Pupils learn about the different traditions taking place abroad around the time of our Pancake Day, which include masked revellers, huge floats and colourful parades. In Germany there’s even a day when women traditionally chop off the ties worn by the men!

A team of four students from The Fallibroome Academy will be competing against teams from across the United Kingdom for this year’s Team Maths Challenge trophy.
The team finished in first place at the Regional Final held in Poynton and won the opportunity to complete in the National Final at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on Monday 17th June 2019. Over 1600 school entered the competition and 88 have qualified to take part in the Final.
Representing Fallibroome Academy are Nathan Herbert & Lewis Clough from Year 9 and Thea Steiger & Aadi Whitlock from Year 8.
The National Final of the Team Maths Challenge, which is run by the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust, involves teams of four students from Year 8 and 9 (England), Years 9 and 10 (Northern Ireland) and Years S1 and S2 (Scotland), competing in:
a poster competition based on a mathematical subject;
a group circus involving hands-on maths problems;
a series of shuttles in which the answer from one question feeds the next;
a crossnumber (mathematical crossword);
a relay race combining physical and mental agility.
The Fallibroome Academy have once again dominated the Cheshire and Merseyside Orienteering League winning the league title for a 10th year running and this weekend swept the board in the end of season relays held at Queens Park in Crewe.
Whilst securing the league Fallibroome secured 23 individual medals across the 14 age/sex categories. 8 Gold 8 Silver 7
Bronze. Gold medallists were G7 Catriona Beynon, B9 Oliver Thomason, G9 Lauren Smith, B10 Joe Herbert, G10 Millie Collins, B11 Ben Kyd, G12 Ailsa Hay, and B13 Harry Brown.
In the Relays, The Fallibroome Academy built on their dominance securing all 4 Gold Medals and winning the 20/20 Shield for the 5th Year in
succession. The relays are an exciting format requiring team members to negotiate 3 different courses. One mistake or missed ‘punch’ means no medal for your team. Speed and accuracy matter. This make the clean sweep of Golds even more impressive.
It was also great to see the parents and staff giving the students a run for their money in the relays as we celebrated another outstanding league season in 2018/19
GOLD – Aidan Rooza, Catriona Beynon, Ben Siriwardena
SILVER – Emily Sparks-Welsh/Laura Livingstone, Emma Kyd, Evie Eddie/Lucy Davies
GOLD – Oliver Thomason, Bethan Jordan, Ben Kyd
Mixed Open Relay
GOLD – George Humphreys, Lauren Smith, Nathan Herbert
BRONZE – Harry Buxton, Katherine Rushworth, Kyle Allen
Open Relay (20/20 Shield)

On the 7th October this year, Year 7 will be going on a residential trip to the Pioneer Activity Centre (www.acuk.net/pioneer-centre) in Shropshire for three days / two nights. The purpose of this visit is to strengthen the transition process that we currently have at Fallibroome, in order to ensure that your son or daughter gets the most out of their time at our school, as quickly as possible. Ultimately, the trip is about team building, making new friends and strengthening social bonds in new form groups. There will also be lots of opportunities to take part in activities such as orienteering, fencing and building campfires to name but a few! All activities will be led by qualified instructors. The students will also be accompanied by Fallibroome staff and senior teachers.
The price of the trip will be £165 which includes travel, accommodation and meals. We will be sending a google form to you at a later stage requesting more information from you with respect to special requirements, dietary, allergies etc.
To confirm your child’s place on the trip please complete the attached slips and return with payment as per the payment plan detailed below. If you do not wish your child to take up this opportunity please return the first slip ticking the appropriate box so we can make alternative arrangements for those students who remain in school.

£50 second instalment by Friday, 12th July, 2019
£50 final payment by Friday 13th September 2019

Friendly advice and information on keeping a healthy and positive mind as a student in the modern world. This issue has many articles written by students at Fallibroome Sixth Form intended to help. Read it while it’s hot off the press…
Please read the following letter from Headteacher Mr Francis Power which gives advice on what to do if your child has not been given a place in Year 7 this coming September.
As you know, offers of places at Fallibroome have now gone out to parents. If you have not been successful in gaining a place here and would still like to join us, the following advice might be helpful:
Accept the place that you have been offered before the March deadline. That place can be declined at a later date if a place becomes available here. If you decline your current offer and are then not successful at appeal or via the waiting list for a place at Fallibroome, then there is a chance that your child would not have a secondary place at a local school at all.
If your circumstances have changed since the original application was submitted (for example, a change of address/school), make sure that you give this information to Cheshire East as this will affect your position on our waiting list.
Once the March deadline has passed, the Authority will start to backfill places from the waiting list. Every year, we take between 25 and 30 students from this list, usually because a number of families move out of the area or choose to go to the private sector. This means that it would certainly be worthwhile to register for this process if you are still keen to join us in September.
You also have the right to an independent appeal, but I suggest that it would be better to wait until after Easter just in case you are offered a place from our waiting list. If you would like to pursue the appeal process, I have attached some guidance documentation and a copy of the school’s case for your information. You will need to submit your appeal on the proforma attached to the Chair of the Admissions Committee, c/o the Clerk to Governors here at Fallibroome. This can be emailed to Mrs Nuttall at ku.gr1555979149o.emo1555979149orbil1555979149laf@l1555979149tn1555979149. All appeals for Y7 places for September will be heard by early July.
Thank you for your interest in joining our school. I appreciate that this can be an emotional process for families and that it can be difficult to decide how best to proceed from this point. If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Nuttall either by email or on her direct line at 01625 627263.
