Year 7 school photographs

Tomorrow (Thursday 24th September) all Year 7 students will have their school photograph taken by the School Photography Company. Therefore, students should attend school in full school uniform, and do not require their PE kits. We have spoken to their PE teachers, and activities will be planned to accommodate the fact students will be in uniform. Year 7 students are not required to wear or bring their PE kit in school tomorrow.

what is F.A.R ?

Congratulations to Y7 students: Lucy A, Jules W, Matilda S, Dylan C, and Faye S. They were the first students to answer Mr Samra’s question: what is F.A.R at Southam College? 

F.A.R stands for Feedback, Action, Response and is used by our teachers to assess students’ work and move them on in their learning. 

Well done to those students – HAPs have been awarded!

Welcome Year 7

Message from Mrs Erro1

Head of Year 7, Mrs Erroi, has recorded a brief video message for our new Year 7s about starting school next week (Wednesday 2 September). 

The video from Mrs Erroi today is our updated information for year 7 for the 2nd September. Year 7 will now meet on the field, instead of the hall as previously planned, and there will be staff on hand to support and direct students. All other information from the year 6 transition presentation from July remains unchanged and is relevant for students starting at Southam College.

Information Update for September Return

As part of our preparation for students to return to school in September we would be grateful if parent/carers would complete the short information gathering sheet (via the link below) for your child/ren.

Further information on September arrangements, in addition to the FAQs sent out in the summer term, will be coming out over the course of this week.

Many thanks, Southam College
