It has been a busy couple of months at the sixth form centre.
First off congratulations to Evvia Gonzales and Felix Prutton for gaining offers from Cambridge University. They both have places to read Natural Sciences, Evvia at St Johns and Felix at Downing College.
The majority of our year 13 students have heard about their university applications and are in the process of making their final choices about where they want to continue their studies. We are very proud of all your achievements. Their next job is to make their finance applications which need to be done by 31st May.
Half term saw year 13 students embarking on trips. 30 Geography students went on a trip of a lifetime to Iceland for four days, they were able to experience a vast array of geographical phenomena, and were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. Other highlights included a glacier walk and a visit to the blue lagoon. Many thanks to Miss Myers, Mr Webster and Mr Stubbs for the organisation of the trip. 15 science and history students went on a combined trip to Berlin, and experienced many historical and scientific sites, highlights being the science museum and the sausage museum, and the remaining section of the Berlin Wall. Many thanks to Mr Thawley and Miss Kutesko for organising and taking the students.
Congratulations goes to Lauren Howe who was the first Suffolk and Norfolk student home in the English Schools National Cross country final. This was Lauren’s last chance to compete and she had her best ever finish, coming 82nd out of 307 finishers. She commented that this was a good race to finish her cross country career at Bungay High School.
Students are gearing up for sports relief on the 18th March where we are having a planking competition, a staff vs student volley ball match and wear your team strip for the day.
It has also been a busy time for the sixth form team, interviewing the prospective candidates both those from Bungay High and other local schools, and we look forward to welcoming them into year 12 in September.
As exam time is looming, students are working really hard at their course work and preparing for their exams. The centre is open from 8am until 5.30pm on most days if students find it easier to work here. We wish them well with the final few months hard work a head.
