Remembrance Day

Monday 11th November
”It was an honour to play the Last Post for Southam College. I have followed in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps in doing so because they both went to this school and played it as well.”

Degree Apprenticeship

What are degree apprenticeships?

Degree apprenticeships are a new type of programme offered by some universities. Students can achieve a full bachelor’s or master’s degree as part of their apprenticeship.

These programmes are being developed by employers, universities, and professional bodies working in partnership.

Degree apprenticeships combine working with studying part-time at a university. Apprentices are employed throughout the programme, and spend part of their time at university and the rest with their employer. This can be on a day-to-day basis or in blocks of time, depending on the programme and requirements of the employer.

They can take between three to six years to complete, depending on the course level. Currently, the scheme is only available in England and Wales, although applications may be made from all parts of the UK.


Stowe Valley Multi Academy Trust are excited to announce their Global Virtues Week will commence on Monday 2nd December 2019.

Look out for our calendar of events from each school within the trust.

Please see Mrs Thomas for more details.
