Ethical Day Of Thinking

Year 12 had a fantastic morning exploring ethical thinking as part of our whole school approach to Philosophy and Ethics. Students had the opportunity to hear from five different organisations including:

Myton Hospice (Medical Ethics)

Alan Cutler (Humanist UK)

Jane Sault (Pro-Choice Advocate)

Warwickshire Police

Harkirat Singh (Sikh Education Service)

It was great to see students engaging with ethical thinking from a medical ethics viewpoint, including end of life care to Sikh thought and being.

Well done to Year 12!

What a joy it was to work with such intelligent, thoughtful, and open-minded young people today. Thanks for giving me the opportunity! (Humanist UK)

Year 13 Leavers Prom 2022

Last night our Year 13 students enjoyed a stylish celebration at Hellidon Lakes Hotel. It was extremely well organised by our Head Students Ten, Joe and the prom committee, well done for all of your hard work. It was a wonderful evening and a fitting way to celebrate the end of seven years as a student at Southam College. We hope you look back on these days with sentimentality in years to come.

We look forward to celebrating with you again on A Level results day, Thursday 18th August. All the best for the future.

Year 12 Biology

Year 12 Biologists have had a wonderful afternoon in the sun at Ryton Pools, using a variety of different methods to sample the plethora of flora and fauna.

Summer display

Thank you to Southam College’s Global Virtues and Cultural Ambassadors for creating our summer display by reception! 

It has brought lots of positive thoughts and feelings as we head towards the summer.

 

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.
