On Our Minds

Sixth Form students Sophie Armour and Imogen Airson continued their drive to raise awareness of mental health as part of National Mental Health Awareness Week and to develop the Extended Project Qualification. The girls delivered assemblies to pupils discussing the importance of recognising and increasing awareness of mental health, something that we take seriously as a school. The girls also raised £120 from their cake sale in aid of the charity ‘Mind’.

Cambridge Calls

Former Year 13 student Adam Liddle has begun his journey as an undergraduate where he faced tough competition to secure a place to study Natural Sciences at Christ’s College Cambridge. Good luck to Adam and all of our former students who are now embarking upon the next phase of their education, many at Russel Group Universities across the country.

Newcastle Photo Trip

AS and A level photography students have undertaken a practical photography visit exploring the theme ‘Urban Environment’. The intention of the visit was to engage the students immediately through a practical experience, exploring their own ideas and interpretation of the starting point.

The Warmest of Welcomes

Life in Sixth Form got off to a productive start with an impressive 105 new students choosing to enrol from a range of secondary schools across the city.  This is our biggest year group so far and we had a great time getting to know students on our annual residential trip to Derwent Hill.  The trip gave our new recruits the opportunity to bond in some fantastic surroundings and certainly helped get their Sixth Form experience off to a positive start.

We also welcomed back our new Year 13 students who, having received their AS Level results over the summer, will now be working hard towards their full A Level qualifications.  Work has already started on their university applications.

Good luck to all our Sixth Formers this year, let the hard work begin!

Biology Boffins Head to Newcastle

Our Year 13 Biologists travelled to Newcastle University to take part in a workshop at the School of Biomedical Sciences.  They used university-level laboratory techniques to identify a possible chemical terror attack using biomarkers.  A very insightful experience, with several students even committing to careers in the field!
