Six Former in the Sound Booth

A Level Music student Katrina Wake spent two days in a recording studio over the Easter break to record her A Level Pop Ballad Composition to industry standard. She intends to release this on Spotify and iTunes after she has completed her A Level studies – keep your eyes open and ears peeled for this future star!

You can listen to Katrina’s recording here.

Coastal Curiosity

Our Year 12 Geographers visited Seaham recently to collect data for their independent investigations. They worked extremely hard and gathered lots of information, assessing the sea defences, completing questionnaires and field sketches, analysing flood risk as well as creating maps of the area. They also had lots of fun having a competition to see who could skim pebbles into the sea the furthest, bringing home some of the stones they had collected as a reminder of their day. Not missing their chance to practice their geography skills, our students even studied some of the pebbles to determine rates of coastal erosion.

Pitch Preparation

Intrepid students who are part of our Duke of Edinburgh Award Challenge set out at the weekend on the final part of their journey.  The group will be heading to out to weather the outdoors and test the skills they have learned along the way. As part of this, students took the time to practice their tent pitching skills in school.

Introducing Insight

Recently, we saw the introduction of our latest initiative towards encouraging high aspirations. Insight is a programme we have introduced to give primary school students a chance to learn more about the subjects they could go on to study at Sixth Form and beyond. From Genetics to Psychology, Linguistics to Sociology, our Year 5 guests from Valley Road had a small taste of what these subjects meant and learnt more about themselves in the process. It is hoped that by teaching pupils of their potential from an early age we can encourage the high aspirations that are a major part of what our Sixth Form is all about.
