Moving On

Moving On

There is a palpable sense of excitement building in the Sixth Form Centre as Year 13 look forward to moving onto the next stage of their educational careers and the joys that university life brings. It is difficult to put into words how incredibly proud I am of every one of these students, who have not had the easiest time, given the challenges experienced as a result of the global pandemic. I have been inspired by their optimism, endeavour and the strong sense of community they have, which carried them through lockdown and the ensuing uncertainty over whether exams would take place this summer  For me, the community spirit that Sherfield fosters, not only amongst the students, but also amongst staff and parents, is the vital ingredient that makes our school such a special place. 
 
Speaking of proud teacher moments, I would also like to congratulate Oisin, Emilie and Srividya on the successful completion of their extended projects. The extended project is a qualification offered in the Sixth Form, which provides students with the opportunity to independently plan, research and write a 5,000-word essay on a topic of their choice. Srividya took a medical stance with her project, focusing on the use of stem cell therapy in the treatment of spinal cord injuries, whereas Emilie and Oisin completed history based projects. Oisin researched the extent to which the 1981 Hunger Strike changed the political landscape in Northern Ireland, whereas Emilie compared the socio-economic impacts of the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall. Completing the extended project is such a huge accomplishment, especially given the challenges of the last two years, and I hope all three students have found the process beneficial.

I am sure you will join me in wishing our wonderful Year 13 students every success for the future, as they leave to embark on their next adventure.

Kind regards

Ms Seamark - Head of Sixth Form
