It has officially been a month since the new academic year began although it feels like we started just yesterday! As we started our new A-Level content it soon became clear that the upcoming year will bring lots of surprises. In history, I particularly enjoyed following the US Presidential debates. The wait has been long […]

Two weeks into the new academic year and I think I can say a vast majority of us still haven’t adapted to waking up so early nor having to write so much throughout the day. The biggest feature of this week has definitely been Open Day – a day that we can all relate to. […]

The past week has been quite a tiring yet exciting one. I am finally settling back into the school routine; early morning starts and late finishes. UCAS has been a big feature of this week, with completing my application and sending it to be approved by the school. If anything, it has been a huge […]

The first week back from the Christmas holidays is not something anyone wants to face. This year I didn’t even bother making a New Year’s resolution because I’ve finally come to accept that exercise is just not in my nature. However, for those waiting for replies from Oxbridge, the week had an added horror. The […]

The last week before the Christmas holidays is always a good week and even better when it only consists of four days! There were many disappointed faces due to us having to miss the Sixth Form Revue which the Year 12s had planned out, but it’s a treat for Year 13 to have the Friday off school so […]

The Sixth Form centre is all festive with a nicely decorated Christmas tree in the foyer, advent calendars in the booths and hand-made decorations all over the common room.

The start of this week was pretty exciting as the university offers seem to be coming in a lot more this week. I also  received 4 out of 5  of my offers!  Everyone has been really supportive throughout the period of suspense leading up to these offers. It was very heartwarming to receive all the […]

This week is an important week in the school calendar as it is the week of Speech Day. Speech Day is the most prestigious event in the year. It is an awards ceremony where students are recognised for everything from academic achievement to work in the community. This year I was privileged to receive the […]
