  • Student excels at Pi Day celebrations

    15th March 2017 - John Whitgift Academy

    Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world.  Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

    Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorise. One John Whitgift student, Niamh Clarke, has managed to memorise it to 50 decimal places! A very impressive feat!

     

    Watch Niamh recite Pi to 50 dec

  • Year 9 Rugby Tournament

    14th March 2017 - Garforth Academy

    The Year 9 Rugby team played in a five school tournament at St.John Fisher School, Harrogate yesterday. The lads were a credit to the Academy, playing four games against some very good opposition. They worked hard and pulled together well as a team, winning one, drawing one and narrowly losing two. To say it was physical would be an understatement!!

    Well done to everyone involved.

    After 17 years of working at Craven, Mrs Jackson has decided it is time to retire which will allow her to spend lots of lovely time with her baby grand-daughter, Skye.
