Year 10 Enrichment Day – Tuesday 19th July 2016

Tomorrow, triple scientists will be studying succession in the recently opened Southam College eco pond. Staff have been collecting samples at different depths of the pond. All students will be measuring abiotic factors such as light and temperature and relating this to the species found. It’s going to be a very interesting day!


Year 10 Immersion Day 1

Today Year 10 students completed the first of four immersion days in their options subjects. Students made great progress with controlled assessments and course content. Keep up the hard work tomorrow for Day 2!


There were tears of joys and sadness as we finished the final show and what an array of talent.
We were so happy to see so much new talent come through and sad to see our Year 13’s finish their last show.

We are so proud of all of you and hope you enjoyed yourselves.

Thank you

The Performing Arts Faculty.

Careers and Life Skills

Day 1 of the Year 10 Employability Skills Mock Interviews

A fantastic atmosphere today as we have welcomed many employers from several companies to Southam College. The employers have kindly gave up their time to support our students in a mock interview process to develop their skills further. Thank you to all those involved. We have been very impressed so far by the professionalism of the Year 10 students in terms of their effort to prepare their own CV and Covering letter ready to present to their employer but also with the mature attitude displayed towards taking part in the Interview process.

Well done Year 10
