Year 12 students spent the day exploring their futures and the multiple routes toward achieving their goals, in the Sixth Form Futures Day. Superbly organised by Angela Martin, the students engaged in a variety of workshops with over 16 providers, from national organisations like the NHS to local employers such as Bakers and Larners and Kinnerton. Students were also treated to talks from Sixth Form alumni about their university experience. Overall there was certainly plenty to think about.
Thank you to everyone involved, especially Angela Martin.
Sixth Form students were treated to a “First Steps to Start Up” business course these last two days. There was plenty of ideas and excellent advice in how to set up a business. Who knows, the next Branson, Dyson or Bridgewater may be in our Sixth Form. Thank you to Richard Voisey at Nwes for running it.
Year 12 students enjoyed a fascinating day at Norwich Crown Court as part of their alternative Work Experience programme.
Thank you to our four wonderful Year 12 ambassadors, who helped market our Sixth Form effectively at the North Norfolk Skills and Careers Festival at Paston today. We’re very proud of you.
How wonderful to report on the 70th birthday of the NHS that Sheringham High School and Sixth Form ex-student Ryan Devlin has continued his amazing achievements. Between securing recognition from Norman Lamb for his Cancer Research ambassador work and inspiring current Sixth Formers at the Futures Day next week, Ryan found time at the start of this week to represent not only his university, but also all branches of medical practice in the Edinburgh area, at the BMA Annual Representatives Meeting in Brighton. He addressed the 500 doctors from across all areas of the medical profession on key motions relating to quality of student education, the introduction of the ScotGem training programme, and student struggles with mental health. Truly inspirational.
As an expectant nation settled nervously to watch a certain sporting contest, Sheringham Sixth Form staff and students were in the Fine City celebrating the end of an intense period of A Level exams. It was a fitting send off for an exceptional group of students.
Thank you to all Year 13s for the wonderful memories, and the very best of luck with your results, and in your futures.
Situated, as we are, just by the coast, with many of our students employed at lifeguards, and with the summer holiday on the horizon, it seemed obvious that Sheringham Sixth Form should support a local charity and raise money for the RNLI.
The campaign was officially launched on Monday with two representatives from the Sheringham Lifeboat Station explaining to the Sixth Form how the RNLI will be using the money raised to buy lifesaving equipment.
Sixth Formers are competing in tutor groups to raise as much money as possible, and will be providing refreshments on Sports Day.
Please bring your money and support a very worthwhile, local charity.
On the 26th June, we opened our doors and welcomed our new Sixth Formers. We know how lucky we are to have attracted such a fabulous group of young people not only from Sheringham, but also Alderman Peel, Alysham, Cromer, Paston and North Walsham.
In addition to finding more about their A level subjects, the students enjoyed an afternoon in the sun, being treated to a complimentary barbeque. The day really helped everyone bond together, and was a great introduction to the fun they will have together in our Sixth Form.
We look forward to welcoming everyone in September following their success in their GCSEs, and enrolment is on 23 and 30 August.
Year 13 Leavers’ Day is always a day of mixed emotions when we say goodbye to our A Level students, and this year was no exception. The current Year 13s have been a truly wonderful year group, and all staff shall miss enormously their cheering presence; we shall, however, also look forward to hearing of their amazing achievements in the weeks, months and years to come – they will make their mark on the world.
The Leaving celebrations commenced with a Final Assembly, where students were guided through the highlights of their educational journey, pausing occasionally to dwell on what the future might hold for them, as indicated through the mystical powers of astrology. The students continued the celebrations by feasting at the Leavers’ BBQ. Many staff and tutors were able to join the students, swapping memories from the past seven years, sharing in a fitting celebration of this Independence Day for a well-loved set of students.
We wish all the Sixth Form students leaving every success in their exams and into the future. Remember, you are always welcome to visit.
