Charity begins at College

The focus may currently be on locked down learning, but in December Sheringham Sixth Form students generously supported two key charities and thought of others. We filled 19 gift boxes for Blythswood Care’s 2020 Shoebox Appeal for people in need across Eastern Europe; we also raised over £300 by wearing Christmas jumpers for Macmillan Cancer Support. Well done to everyone.

16-19 Tuition Fund 2020-21

The 16-19 tuition fund is a one-off funding allocation for the 2020-21 academic year to support learners catch up and close any gaps in their learning that may have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 lockdown, and they have a GCSE Maths and/or English grade of 4 or below at age 16.

The fund will be used for small group and 1:1 tuition in English, Maths and vocational learning for 16 to 19-year-old learners, and this tuition will be in addition to the planned study programme hours.

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.
