Setting the scene: Improving our environment, redesigning the Sixth Form space
The Charity and Community Committee raised money for Katharine House Hospice by arranging Halloween events including fancy dress and ‘sponge the teacher’
The Marketing Committee represented all subjects at open evening.
The Setting the Scene committee raise money every Friday by selling hot chocolate and cakes. So far they have sourced a microwave, toaster, kettle, chairs and an air hockey table for the Sixth Form.

Other events included Bingo, Friday Quiz, Friday Football, Sponsored Silence for Motor Neurone Disease Association and a Christmas jumper day.
Leadership roles that our sixth formers have volunteered for are the school photographer (Zainab), social media guru (Owen) and selling stationery to support lower school equipment and various lunch time sporting clubs.
Sixth Formers will set up and run their own club. So far this academic year we are running the following clubs.
