Driver Safety Seminar

posted by Lucy Forster March 15, 2020 0 comments

During enrichment this week, a group of 20 Sixth Form drivers attended a Road Safety Seminar as part of the school’s involvement in the Formby Road Safety Initiative, led by Andrew Drewary of Road Safety Smart. The session was designed to give students a deeper awareness and understanding of vital road safety considerations and some problems we need to tackle as a community.  The students were invited to make the pledge to become a Road Safety Champion, identifiying five core positive aims to achieve and five negative issues to address.  After the seminar, students were asked to provide feedback and deemed the content to be extremely helpful, particularly the clarity it provided around pavement parking, distractions and ‘fronting’ car insurance.  Thank you to Road Safety Smart for delivering the session.

Art Award Gold

On 28 February our Year 13 Gold Arts Award students created a body of work in their chosen discipline to showcase to an audience of staff, students and parents. The school hall was brought to life with the lighting and sound design of alumni Joe Egerton with his technical theatre company ‘Prestige’.  The work is the culmination of a two year Sixth Form enrichment course which is worth 16 UCAS points or a ‘B’ at AS Level and highlights students of the arts as independent creators.  The cohort studied and displayed a variety of disciplines, including poetry, jazz dance choreography, pop singing, scat singing and fashion design.
