News from Sixth Form - February 2019
Charlotte Murphy, Head of Sixth Form, writes: ‘It has been another busy and successful few weeks with much to be proud of. Upper Sixth students coped admirably with their mock exams and have taken much from the experience. Offers from universities are flowing in and the variety of courses and universities that our students have chosen is testament to their individual passions. Lower Sixth have started to consider their future choices and the Higher Education Evening created a buzz of excitement. Sport continues to be an integral part of life and it is so nice to see our Sixth Formers embrace the fortnightly Health & Fitness lessons. Our sporting teams continue to thrive. The U18 netball team played admirably at the regional tournament and the U18 hockey team reached the Midland finals.
Elsewhere we have seen competition success. Elukchana and Nina represented King’s in the Maths Slam at Maths Fest in Birmingham, speaking for three minutes in front of eminent mathematicians about the ways that one can estimate pi. Taking academic knowledge beyond the classroom is encouraged and celebrated at King’s and this is seen every month with our range of Academic Societies run by Sixth Formers. Young Enterprise are working hard and developing a range of products. One example from Team Imperium is a revision planner called Stress Less, which will be launched soon along with the other team’s products. The talent, energy and enthusiasm of our Sixth Formers continues to shine through.’
