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.https://southam.survey.fm/back-to-school

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

As part of your Year 7 induction pack you should have received a form to complete to join our 100 Club. This is a great opportunity for you to be part of our quarterly draws and raise money for the College. We also run our own events throughout the year, with the aim of raising £10k each year, for the school to spend on equipment or improvements that enhance the students experience at school.
If you would like to be part of the PTSA, please do email us at southamcollegeptsa@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to contact you, or complete the forms in your induction pack and return them to the College.
You can also raise funds for the school whilst you shop online through www.easyfundraising.org.uk or smile.amazon.co.uk
Make sure you visit the Year 6 blog again in a few days as we will also be uploading a virtual introduction to the PTSA and the work that we do in supporting the College.

The Uniform Shop

For the second year, we are running our uniform shop initiative to encourage reuse of garments and reduce Textile waste, one of the leading contributing factors to climate change. 

You will be able to order uniform by emailing the item and size of garment that you need to the following email address: SouUniformShop@welearn365.com

Please carefully check the attached documents to see what stock we have available.

Orders will then be available for collection from the student office, this will be confirmed to you directly via email.

We are accepting donations in an honesty box which will also be held at the student office, the money raised will go to the school and enable use to continue to run The Uniform Shop and other events in future years.

N.B All uniform is second-hand and sold as seen.

Due to COVID-19 all uniform will need to be washed immediately once you bring it home. We will be unable to accept returns once an item has been taken home so please measure your child carefully before placing an order.
