Thank you to Ms Fooks and Ms Flemming who took sixth formers and year 11 to 'Young People's Question Time' at the Houses of Parliament on Monday evening as part of Parliament Week.
Chyna Crawford kicked off the whole event by asking the very first question, followed closely by Abigail Bailey who had questions about the health service. We were very impressed by their confidence and maturity.
Speakers included: Dr Kwasi Kwarteng MP (Conservative), Diane Abbott MP (Labour), Steven Woolfe MEP (UKIP) and Baroness Jenny Jones (Green Party) and Krishnan Guru-Murthy from the Channel 4 news who was the Chair for the evening.
A really informative and interesting evening all round.

An inspiring presentation from the Challenge Network - NCS, certainly engaged the Sixth Form in their assembly this week. The presenters explained the various aspects of its one year programme for motivated school-leavers aged 18. The programme combines quality work experience with a nationally recognised qualification and training to develop professional skills and launch their future careers.
Many individuals seemed very interested in the wonderful opportunities the team were able to share and will no doubt be applying for the programme over the next few weeks. Good Luck everyone!

Congratulations to all those Sixth Form who applied to either the SOAS or Kings+ Programmes at Kings College London but particular praise should go to Ilhan, Chyna, Sophia, Iona, Kentridge and Ilhan for successfully being awarded a place. Having received almost 900 applications for the scheme the students have done a great job in winning their places. We know from previous experience just how helpful the support is that the Sixth Form receive from this kind of outreach, the lectures, master classes, mentoring and invites to numerous social events, not to mention the support writing their persona statements for UCAS and Careers Guidance.

Thank you to Miss Cowley for organising another trip to the ever fascinating Victoria and Albert Museum. Artists introduced the children to the Fashion Collection which they used as the inspiration for workshop that explored computer coding and how it relates to design and particularly graphics. The work will be a valuable addition to the coursework.
