As we head into the summer months, Sixth Form teachers are putting together projects for next year's Year 12s to complete over the summer holidays. We will list the projects below.
As a result of the crumbling UK government, young people like us are being blatantly ignored when it comes to the subject of our plant. As a result, the Eco-Council at UCC came together to host a formal event raising awareness of the ever growing issue which is Climate Change. This event along with interviews with local councillor, Rory Stewart, will hopefully help our world in the long run. #climatestrike #climatechange #strike4change

We would like to thank Mr Stewart for giving up his time and displaying a clear enthusiasm for engaging with students, whilst offering an intelligent sense of realism to the discussion. We look forward to further meetings, as we aim to address this crucial issue.

RE is all about sex, death and all the stuff in-between" was how one student summed up their learning from the RE conference called 'Creation' attended by Y10 GCSE RE students; an interesting take away thought! Sedbergh school hosted the Dr Peter Vardy event and it was an action packed day exploring big, philosophical questions concerning the nature of existence.

37 people living in refugee camps in Calais, France are warmer today. Thanks to UCC students who generously donated hats, scarves, socks and gloves. I know that we have worked together to make the lives of these people a little better, and I hope that next year we can help even more people.
There are some exciting clubs with Philosophy and RE for you to take part in these are the following:

Copies can be picked up from the school, Booths or the magazine is available to view online here.
Teachers have been busy this week compiling summer projects for the students who will be leaving Year 11 this summer and returning to us in September as Sixth Formers.
Students can find these on the Curriculum page of the subjects they will be studying.
Professor Michael Preston-Shoot (Dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at the University of Bedfordshire) gave an inspirational lecture to the sixth form: “On the threshold of new dreams”. This was followed by a debate with students on a diverse range of social issues. The Sixth form questions were excellent. The Professor then visited lessons in school with a focus on philosophy & ethics and health & social care. He had a thoroughly enjoyable visit and would be happy to return. A small amount of footage was taken from the session:
