  • A Fond Farewell

     

    Leavers-1And that’s it. The end. Our first sixth formers have competed their A-level courses, and now all that remains is some final revision and exams – before a long summer break. It has been an absolute pleasure to guide these wonderful students through their sixth form studies – in fact, the whole process has been by far the greatest thrill of my professional life. If I’m honest, I was at least as tearful as they were on our last day!

    Good luck to all of you, we’ll see you again soon.

  • A SIDE View

    SIDE-2A group of AS and A level students attended an interesting exhibition called ‘Childhoods’ as an introduction to a new assignment.  CHILDHOODS crosses four continents opening up stories about young people that are often ignored or misrepresented. It brings together film and photography created between 1977, when Side Gallery first opened, and now. The student’s responses, attitude and reflections on the work was outstanding with some genuine heartfelt reactions displayed on their behalf.SIDE-1SIDE-3

     

  • A Warm Welcome

    Transition Days took place recently for new Year 12 students coming from Southmoor, Sandhill View and many other schools.  Students attended two days of taster lessons, quizzes, advice from Year 13 and, of course, the all-important annual Sixth Form Sports Day Extravaganza.  If there was an Olympic medal for carrying a balloon with your face, Cameron Abernethy would surely be a shoe-in for Gold!
