International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women from across the world.
At Southam College we believe a challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change.
Taking part in our Castle Building Competition is your chance to show us everything you know about medieval castles. All the details are on the poster – please get in touch if you have any questions.
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!
We’ve been so impressed with the work you have done in lessons for the Castles unit, we’d like to see if you can demonstrate your knowledge with our ‘Castle Building Competition’!
All the details are on the poster… we are excited to see the creative methods / materials you come up with for building models of medieval castles.

Our 7A1 Textiles’ students have taken part in a live fashion drawing lesson with Miss Sinden.
We studied the work of Grace Ciao a fashion illustrator who works with natural objects to create quirky designs. Miss Sinden was really impressed with the whole class’s participation and enthusiasm.
Well done year 7
For the next 5 days we are going to post a “Taking care of YOU” top tip for our young people and families. We know this is a hard time for everyone and taking care of your mind as well as your body is so important at this time. These tips might not be anything new but sometimes it is helpful to have ideas broken down and shared again. Pass them on and help others too!
Taking Care of YOU – Day one
Talk to someone about your worries. It’s ok to feel helpless, scared or anxious at this time. It’s also ok to feel fine. Everyone reacts differently. Try talking to someone you trust about how you feel. Sharing our worries helps. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, click the link below for a range of fantastic helplines.
There are a number of laws designed to protect people from discrimination. You can learn about The Equality Act 2010 from this video and poster. It is good that we have laws but remember what we need to do ourselves is understand what racism is and oppose it wherever we see it, no matter who we are.
Year 7WG1 “Bugs/Butterflies and Birds” – pencil, biro and colour studies.
