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.
Sophia Costa Sciences
Iona-Perle Bohuis and Kentridge Frimpong Maths and Computing

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.

Out first Immersion Day of the year gave Yr 11 the valuable opportunity to work for the whole day with either the Maths department or staff from Science, putting in some intensive preparation for the Mock exams ahead at the end of this term. Yr 10 spent time in their Option Groups, many of out on exciting trips and visits – for example, the Yr 10 graphics group went off on a Street Art Tour of East London, whilst the textile students worked with textile artist Louise Jackson, screen printing, burning, ripping and twisting fabrics to create a range of Vivienne Westwood Punk inspired samples.
Humanities took trips to the Wandsworth Museum – where the children spent the day, in role as suffragettes, whilst MFL designed a day for Yr 7 around ‘Mi colegio hispanico ideal’ - using all the language from the module that they have studied on ‘school’ to design and describe their ideal school. They named them, drew them, designed the uniforms, described the teachers, wrote out the school rules and described all the facilities the school has to offer including swimming pools, gyms, and games rooms!
Sixth Form trips and activities were guided towards research for Higher Education, with many of the Upper Sixth working hard on preparing their UCAS application for University next year. Staff organised University and College visits, visits to employers in the City and even workshops with Photographers at the Brighton Film and Photography Festival.
