Student Politician

We would like to congratulate Sixth Form Alumnus Lyall Reed on being elected as councillor to St Michael’s Ward in the recent  local elections. Lyall stood as a Conservative candidate for the area and was delighted to be appointed. Since leaving he has also taken on the role of Deputy Chairman of the Sudnerland Conservatives Group and is also currently studying History and Politics at Northumbria University. Well done Lyall and we look forward to hearing more from your political career!

Sociology Crime Lecture

Dr David Honeywell delivered a lecture to our sociologists on the topic of prisons, punishment and education. He spoke about his own time in prison as a young man, describing the conditions he faced and comparing experiences in different institutions. His turning point was prison education; the catalyst for turning his life around. He now has a PhD and specialises in convict criminology.
After the lecture Dr Honeywell had some very positive comments towards our students: 

“There were some good questions and they were all impeccably attentive. I think some of my undergraduate students could do with a lesson from your students on how to conduct themselves in class.”

One to One Aspirations

Year 12s have taken big steps in reaching towards their aspirations by signing up for one-to-one meetings with our raising aspirations coordinator, Miss Ungley. Miss Ungley works part-time for Oxford university and is the Oxnet coordinator for the North East! But it’s not just universities that she has been chatting to students about, one of our year 12s is even aspiring to do a year at Disney Land Florida, learning the ropes of what it means to be a real-life Disney character! Whatever their aspirations, Miss Ungley has been working tirelessly to help these students reach their goals and get excited about their futures before getting onto their university and apprenticeship applications in the months to come.
