University of Warwick open days

While we would have loved to welcome you in person to campus for an Open Day, our Virtual Open Days are the next best thing. They are jam-packed with taster lectures, live seminars and talks with some of our best and brightest academics and student ambassadors. Have a look at the agenda and build your own open day (or days) by choosing the sessions and activities that interest you most.

Year 12 Pasta Practical


Whilst Y12 are unable to physically visit Italy, they were able to explore the cuisine of Italy for a recent pasta practical where they refreshed their skills to produce a dish featuring tagliatelle, ravioli and spaghetti.

We were very excited to try out the new Kitchen Aid Macaroni attachment, which worked well. 

Well done Year 12. Mrs James

Criminology Talk

Mrs Mali came in to speak to Year 12 criminology classes this week to discuss honour based violence and murder in the UK. Using personal experiences and real life testimonies pupils were engaged and participated in a mature and understanding manner to a very sensitive topic. 

Well done year 12 and a huge thank you Mrs Mali. 
Mrs Southworth.

Degree Apprenticeships (MI5 London – Manchester)

We recognise that university isn’t for everyone. We need people who are fresh out of school, eager to get started and want to do something interesting and exciting. Every single person, role, and team in our organisation plays its part in helping us keep the country safe. We offer a range of opportunities from busy administrative roles to technical training programmes. Whether you are supporting one of our investigative teams, administrating in human resources or starting out on our Technical Apprenticeship Scheme, you will be part of a supportive team with the opportunity to develop and learn about the exciting work of MI5.

Grofar at Southam College

Our year 12 students have been exploring potential pathways using Grofar – we have been so impressed with how proactive our new 6th formers have been in investigating potential next steps in their academic/career journeys.

Sixth Form Societies 2020


We are pleased to launch our new Personal Development programme for Y12 in 2020 – Sixth Form Societies.

All students in Y12 have chosen to join one of our new societies and partake in personal development enrichment activities. The societies range from Amnesty International and Wellbeing, to Netball and Engineering, and all of the groups will take part in a memorable experience during their time in Sixth Form. 

Thanks to all staff involved!

Philosophy and Ethics

Today, Southam College’s Philosophy and Ethics department were excited to invite Jacqui Rogers from Simply Spiritual to be part of Year 12 and 13 Philosophy and Ethics lessons. 


Jacqui was able to discuss with students the spiritual elements of life. Students were able to link this to their OCR A level Philosophy and Ethics course, especially their Soul, Mind and Body component. 


Thank you Jacqui for visiting today!
