Money for a Good Cause

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.

Revenge is Sweet and Rounder

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.

To the future and beyond!

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.

Budding Business in Sheringham

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.


Sheringham’s Proud Birthday Contribution

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.

A fitting send-off

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.
