Head of Sixth Form Lent 11
When you are absorbed in the work you are doing, time moves quickly and this term has certainly flown by, both for our focused students and dedicated teaching team. I'm not sure Usain Bolt could have kept pace! Looking back there is significant evidence of Year 12 and Year 13 aiming high, many achieving top grades in their mock exam series. Year 12s are beginning to identify university courses and apprenticeship opportunities which suit their interests, talents and skills while Year 13s have been confirming their firm and insurance university places and targeting apprenticeship and employment openings.
The term is also punctuated with proof of increased self-belief as students impressed at Young Enterprise Trade Fairs, rowing in several Head of the River events, winning triathlons, performing in music concerts and the football 1st XI reaching the final of the SOCS Super 8 league pictured here. Our local charity, The Alexander Devine Children's Hospice and our global charity, the Gambia Project, have also been well supported, as have several PTA events at which students volunteered to help.
