Year 10 Photography Talent!

After initial practical tasks to understand the use of cameras, our Year 10 GCSE Photography class are coming on leaps and bounds as they study natural light and silhouettes.

A ‘REEL’ Good Time!

Clifton Community School student Morgan recently showed off his impressive fishing skills at Cromwell Lake when he managed to break the venue record by catching a 44lb 6oz mirror carp!

The 16-year-old banked the carp, named Rose, at her top weight and also managed another mirror carp of 29lb 10oz at the Newark fishery.

“This was the first time I had ever been to this lake so I didn’t have any preconceived ideas, I just went hoping to catch a big fish and beat my personal best. So when I pulled Rose out she was a definite bonus!”

“After I had come back down to earth due to it being the lake record and my own pb, my second rod went and I pulled out a 29lb 10oz mirror.”

The school would like to congratulate Morgan on this very impressive achievement! Well done!
