Whilst there, Sixth Former Chloe Ebdon was interviewed and has been given an unconditional offer onto her chosen course! We are establishing strong links between the degree programmes and our Sixth Form which is already paying off.

Talking Men’s Mental Health

Year 12 students Arianwen West, Emily Iley & Ellie Stobbart delivered a presentation on the importance of Men’s mental health. Evidence suggests that men are significantly less likely to use mental health services in response to a mental health issue in comparison with women, even though suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.  The assembly helped to raise awareness of mental issues and outline the importance of seeking help so that both boys and girls can grow up into mindful adults.

We Can Do It!

The annual Tin Appeal was launched in assemblies by the Student Council.  Each year pupils raid their kitchen cupboards for spare tins to donate to the homeless over Christmas. This year we have set our sights high with the aim of gathering 2500 tins to smash last year’s count of 2000. Each form class has been given a ‘tin-o-meter’ to track progress towards class targets of 50 tins. The form donating the most tins will be rewarded with a special prize!
