This has been a busy half term for our Sixth Form. They have embraced a well-balanced ethos in Year 13; working hard, completing wider reading and planning their future progression path. At the same time, committees are in the process of planning a range of activities from mixed netball, a Halloween film night, dress-up days and the Christmas Concert; these all help to make life in the Sixth Form enjoyable.
Students took part in Hello Yellow on Thursday 10 October 2019 to raise awareness of Young Minds and our Dress-Up day on 18 October 2019 was to raise money for the charity as well as the May Ball. We welcomed Jo Churchill, our local MP, into school for a talk followed by challenging and forthright questions.
Sixth Form student leaders and committees have made a real impact this term by organising a Freshers’ Fayre for Year 7 students. The Green Committee have been involved in delivering assemblies on the impact of climate change and what actions we can take as individuals.
The UCAS application process is well underway. We are running drop-in sessions in the Foundation Room. We invited University of Suffolk to run an Unlock! session and our Early Entry applications are now studying for their admission entry tests.
