Thank you to the breast cancer charity Coppafeel

Thank you to the breast cancer charity Coppafeel for delivering an informative workshop to our Year 12 girls regarding how to check themselves and how knowing your body could save lives. 

Year 12 students heard from Georgina who informed students of her own experience. 

It was a fantastic experience which empowers students to ensure they are aware of the signs of breast cancer and where to go for support. 

Thank you to Coppafeel for supporting Southam College. 

Diversity Week

The Year 12 focus for Diversity Week is intersectionality. Following your tutor activity, some of you were really interested to find out more and James has put together this great fact file from his research.

In addition to this, here is an interesting article about how intersectionality can influence people’s experiences – in this case, the decision to ‘come out’.

This is thoughtfully written and recognises the differences in people’s experiences and views, so we encourage you to read to the end so you can understand the complexities of this. In order to gain a wider understanding of other stories, we would also suggest you read ‘A Dutiful Boy’ by Mohsin Zaidi and ‘Naturally Tan’ by Tan France, both of which are available in our school library.

A Level PE Trip

The Y12 A Level PE students visited Loughborough University’s Human Performance Centre in Friday to take part in some fitness tests and experience working in their altitude chamber.

It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to experience first hand the world leading facilities they have at Loughborough for their research and athlete development programmes.

Massive congratulations to all students for their efforts on the day, and especially to Louis S for his monumental effort during the VO2 max test. Seeing Anthony Joshua training in the gym didn’t hurt either!

Looking forward to putting some of the knowledge gained back into practice in the classroom!

Well done again to the whole class.
