Cooking and Nutrition

This week, two of our year 7 Cooking and Nutrition groups completed the assessed practical lesson which is part of their food module. The students watched a demonstration of apple crumble and then independently made their own crumble while being observed by Miss Sinden and Mr Weston.

We had some fantastic results. Well done Year 7.

Jude – live at Abbey Road Studios

Today we are celebrating Year 7 student, Jude, who shared with us his exciting experience of playing piano live at Abbey Road Studios. 

Jude was invited to visit the studios on the 50th anniversary of The Beatles Abbey Road album in 2019.  He appeared on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, played piano live at the studios and met Giles Martin (son of George Martin).  Jude even got the opportunity to play on Paul McCartney’s piano!

We’ve loved hearing about Jude’s musical adventure and look forward to seeing his talent continue to develop and blossom during his time here at Southam College. 

If your child has a positive experience to share, we’d love to hear about it and celebrate their achievements too!
