ICT Clinic

Mondays – 4pm to 4.45pm. Well done to all Year 10 students on their hard work and efforts with their ICT Controlled Assessments. Keep up the good work Year 10!

Photography

'Coursework Clinic' provides Key Stage 4 pupils with the opportunity to catch up with any unfinished work. They are able to print off photographs using the new CANON photo printer and work in a quiet and creative environment. This is a valuable session as it allows pupils to work with Miss Smith on an almost one-to-one basis, receiving guidance with their sketchbook work and photography.

Religious Studies

In Religious Studies, our aim is: "To better understand our species, to better understand each other, to understand religion is to understand ourselves". This term we are studying such topics as 'Science versus Religion', 'The Problem of Evil and Suffering' and 'Body, Soul and Personal Identity', amongst others. After school revision sessions will begin next week for those pupils wanting an extra boost.

Psychology

This term Year 13 have been studying relationships. They will complete this topic next week. They have also been working on exam techniques, with skills and essays having been showing much improvement. Year 13 have completed a Research Methods work booklet over Christmas to reinforce classwork completed in run up to Christmas holidays. Extra enrichment sessions are offered on Tuesday 4-5pm up to Easter. New topic starting next week is Anomalistic Psychology.

This term Year 12 have been studying attachment. They should be completing homework on a weekly basis. Over Christmas they were set 3 past papers to complete just the research methods section.

DT

DT STEM Ambassadors
This week we welcomed our new STEM ambassadors into our KS3/KS4 groups. Fred Aston, Alex Manners, Simon Cross and Sam Hussain from Year 12 have undergone STEM training and as part of their ambassadors role they each are coming in to 2 classes a week to pass on their DT knowledge to the younger pupils.

Sixth Form

6th Form students will be attending a variety of University Master classes at Aston University this term, including Business Strategies, Globalisation and the State, Using DNA to Detect Cancer and Chemical Engineering.

English A-level students are attending an intensive Study Day in March on this year's Literary theme: Love Through the Ages, in preparation for their final exam.

20 students have signed up for a Student Conference at Birmingham's Newman University on Higher Education - the decision and the process.

One student has been nominated to attend Oxford University Faculty of Law Open Day - by invitation only

The 6th Form Centre has had newly fitted out study areas, complete with dedicated computers and space for quiet study.
