Thank you to both the Mayor of Southam and Leamington, Councillors and wonderful people who came to the Jamnesty to help support the Amnesty Youth Group make rights real for #allchildren.

Our students have done an exceptional job of spreading the awareness of those who have their rights denied.

Well done!

Year 13  ‘Tips, Talks and Tapas’

On Thursday 5th December, we welcomed back five former Southam College students for our ‘Tips, Talks and Tapas’ event organised for the current Year 13 students. A huge thank you to Katie Andrews, Charlotte Woodward, Caitlin Thomas, Sam Walker and Miss Gregory for their time, effort and fantastic tips on how to succeed at A Level.

The former A+ grade students gave their expert advice, guidance and wise words from a real student perspective, divulging their A Level and University life experiences. Their previous A Level school work and revision tools were on display for the ‘Excellence Exhibition’ where students were able to informally chat and see their hard work in real life written format. There was an impressive amount of work to be seen, showing exceptional hard work setting the example to our current students.

The break out group ‘Masterclasses’ were planned and organised by the former students and a selection of teachers, where year 13 had the opportunity to visit workshops of their choice. There was a confidence & resilience workshop led by Mrs Thompson and myself, also tips on study & revision skills. A big thank you to Mrs Sharpe who led a session on exam technique, Mrs Savage, Mrs Patel, Mrs McCabe and Mrs Smith who all gave up their time to give subject specific based advice.

The ‘Tasty Tapas’ tables were well received by the students throughout the event, with a wide range of different platters including continental meats, olives, sun dried tomatoes, sausage rolls and other snacks available in each of the rooms. The cheese boards had over 10 different types of cheese! The event ended with a prize draw where the winner Hannah B received a £20 restaurant voucher but also other small gifts were awarded for the most detailed ‘Tapas Takeaway booklet’- well done to Holly R, Ben F and Elise A!

Seeing over 60 students stay behind after school until 5:30pm to get involved with this opportunity reminded us of just how dedicated, committed and conscientious this year group really are. We were extremely pleased to see such a brilliant turn out and students engaging with all elements of the event. We have every belief in each of the current year 13 students, you can do it! We hope you continue to stay focused, motivated and push yourselves to the limits this year!

Southam High Street Survey

We have been asked for as many student views as possible about the possibilities around the possible reinvention of Southam high street. This is a great opportunity for you to offer your own opinions around what you would like to see in the future in Southam. All answers will be taken seriously but it is important that you answer sensibly and provide us with an insight into what you would like to see in your area in the future.

Chemotherapy Care Packages

A huge well done to year 12 and 13 students. What a fantastic start to the day seeing so many volunteer students attending the Health and Social care lessons to make these wonderful gifts for Warwick hospital patients.

Student Paramedic Talk

Year 13 Health and Social Care students were treated to an insightful talk by Hugh and Kirsty, who are Paramedical Science students from Coventry University. It was fascinating to hear about the types of medical procedures that student Paramedics learn throughout their training, such as learning when to use Intraosseous or Intravenous cannulations.

This topic is part of the Year 13s upcoming exam so it was very beneficial for all students as well as prospective Paramedics.

On Wednesday evening our AS cohort performed an assessed piece from a text.

They performed in a very sophisticated manner handing challenging topics of a text with incredible maturity and professionalism.

We were very impressed.
