Dr Richardson said: “This has been another year of outstanding A-level results at Sheringham Sixth Form. We are extremely proud of the grades achieved, fully reflecting the hard work and commitment of all our students, and the fantastic support from staff and parents. With nearly a quarter of all students achieving either an A* or A grade, almost three-quarters achieving A* – C grades, and all achieving at least an E grade, we maintain an excellent results track record. Particular congratulations go to our 11 Norfolk Scholars (over a fifth of the year group), especially Kelsey Pegg and Maddie Wright achieving a superb 3A*s, Anna Brady with 2A*s and 1A, and George Padolsey with 1A*, 3As and 1B.”
Mr Keshavarz added: “We are proud of all of our students and all have university places of their choice. Our Sixth Form’s great strength is that it is a ‘team’; its sense of community and individualised learning enable each student to receive personal attention to achieve his/her goals, and we look forward to learning about the continued success of all our Year 13 students.”
Norfolk Scholars in 2018
Whilst the rest of the school strove to break records and win everlasting glory on track and field during a sizzling Sports Day, the Sixth Form rose magnificently to the twin challenges of having to raise as much money as possible for the RNLI whilst providing sufficient refreshments for the school.
Divided into two teams, the Year 12 students competed and collaborated, formed business plans, bought stock and finally flogged the lot. Between them they raised £156.42, which added to the money from the sporting matches against staff earlier in the week, totalled a wonderful £266.89 for the RNLI. Well done to everyone involved.
Following Monday 16th July’s sporting success, the Sixth Form challenged the staff to a rematch – but switched disciplines to rounders.
Hotly contested, and following 20-20 rules, the Sixth Form were pipped to the final base by the staff (6 ½ rounders to 9).
Congratulations to both teams (especially the victorious staff) for another exciting contest, and to the spectators who donated a fabulous £30.04 for the RNLI. This makes our contribution this week £67.25, with further fund-raising.
After a summer of so many sporting highlights, we should add the name Carrier to the likes of Kane, Trippier and Alli, as Euan scored the winning goal for the Sixth Form in their football match against the staff. The Sixth Form won 1-0.
Congratulations to both teams for a fantastic contest, and to the spectators who donated a fabulous £37.21 for the RNLI.
There will be further opportunities to support the RNLI on Thursday with the Sixth Form vs staff rounders match, and on Friday when the Sixth Form will be selling refreshments during Sports Day. Bring your money.
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.
