Year 11 interviews

Congratulations to all the Year 11 students who I have been interviewing for places at Sheringham Sixth Form. You have been well prepared, and excited by the prospect of Further Education.

Good luck with your GCSEs. I look forward to welcoming you to the Sixth Form.

University update

Congratulations to every one of our Year 13 university applicants. We are very proud that all 42 of our applicants have received at least one offer so far, with 6 students being lucky enough to receive unconditional offers from universities of their choice, and 2 students receiving offers from Cambridge Colleges.

We are delighted in all of your success; now the hard work of revising must begin to secure these fabulous opportunities.

BBC Radio Norfolk Interview

On 11th January nine Media and English students visited  The Forum to look around the BBC studios.  Firstly we were shown the Look East newsroom and given a short presentation on the different roles involved in news broadcast and how to prepare for a career in the media.  Afterwards  Liberty, Caitlin, Georgina and Jordan were invited into the Radio Norfolk studio to talk to Matthew Gudgin about their documentary films, shot in Sheringham and exploring a day in the lives of three local residents.

Sheringham Sixth Form Awards Evening 2018

On 5 January Sheringham Sixth Form staff, students and parents assembled for our annual Awards Evening.

We were delighted to welcome back last year’s Year 13 students to celebrate their outstanding A Level achievements, including eight Norfolk Scholars, 100% of students achieving A* – E grades and over 33% A* – B grades, with all students securing destinations of choice, 70% of whom went to university. It was wonderful to catch up with our students before they returned to their university courses and employment, and to have an update on their adventures since leaving the Sixth Form, which included several students travelling around the world.

In addition to the distribution of the A Level certificates, Heads of Subjects awarded subject prizes, with amusing insights into the students they taught. A fantastic evening of festivities was concluded with a heartfelt speech from ex-students Laura Edge and Harriet Pigney, who explained how much their Sixth Form experiences had meant to them.

Our thanks go to all the staff, students and parents who contributed to making this such a memorable event, but of course, our warmest congratulations go to all our Year 13 students for whom the celebration was held, especially the prize winners:

Na Na Nativity

It’s the end of another year and to celebrate the excitement of Christmas, Norwich yfc creates a musical short film telling the story of the nativity in the style of ‘La La Land’.

The charity works with a group of young people to enable them to learn about the world of film production. From camera work to floor managing, acting to singing, on screen and off screen, there’s something for everyone.

My personal experience involved acting, filming and editing. I was given a variety of opportunities on and off screen and was a journey I will never forget. At the beginning of the process, when we were told we were doing a musical, I was concerned by how it would work, however, it took me by surprise by how it all came together to create an engaging version of the nativity.

Ben, who was our director and camera man has said, ‘Our Christmas film project has been a fantastic success. We’ve worked with an amazing team of young people who have given it their best to create something that we hope will reach lots of people.’

Sarah, who was our floor manager and assistant director has said,’ It’s become an annual event for us to make a Christmas film with a group of young people. This year was by far our most ambitious yet! The young people have been brilliant, worked hard, thrown themselves into it – even singing for the very first time for some of them. We’re really proud of the finished film and hope they are too! Seeing them learn & grow in confidence is what makes our jobs so worthwhile!’

The group are also planning on running a film school during February half term which will enable more people to get involved.

A festive treat from Sheringham Sixth Form

Sheringham Sixth Form staff and students embarked on the festive period of feasting and fun that is the forthcoming holiday, with our traditional Christmas breakfast feast. The tables groaned with produce brought in for sharing by staff and students. Pain au chocolate vied with croissants, mince pies and fresh fruit. Students exchanged presents amidst some seasonal tunes, and a good time was had by all.

On behalf of the entire Sixth Form team, have a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and stay safe.
