Lets stop bullying for all

There was a real community feel across Newton Abbot College as students from all of the year groups came together and got involved in the Anti-Bullying Week House Assemblies throughout the week, from 17 – 21 November.

Year 9 and 10 Art students produced artwork which was displayed in the assemblies and all students showed their support to the initiative by signing pledge posters. Anne Farnham, Head of Newton House, said “It was a fantastic show of solidarity and there is a huge amount of talent here at the College.”
