One of our Year 7 students, Bartek Golonko has made it to the national final of the Royal Mail Young Letter Writer Competition. It's a significant achievement as he has made it through to the last 24 out of 100,000  entries. The competition required entrants to write a letter to a prospective employer about their dream job and why they were a suitable candidate.

Bartek won the area finals to make it to the final and because of that he has already won £200 in vouchers and £200 for the college.

Brilliant Letter Writer is in National Final!!!

Bartek said, "Last year, I was offered the experience of writing a letter to the Royal Mail about my dream job, a pilot. When I started writing the letter, I said to myself that I'm only doing this for fun and to challenge myself, I wasn't thinking about getting through to the finals. I'm thrilled and excited!"  

Bartek was interviewed live on Radio Devon on Wednesday 3 February with his teacher, Miss Loader. He explained how he came to write the letter about what was his dream job. He wants to be a pilot and can explain very clearly why this is the case.

During this month, a panel of VIP judges, including TV presenter Helen Skelton, will select the overall winners from the 24 Area Winners.

The National winner will be announced at the end of February.  All the prizes will then be awarded in early March.  This young man is a credit to himself, his family and the college.

Twelve students from year nine had a memorable experience on the 19th January when the Drama department joined forces with Phakama Theatre Company to create an afternoon of entertainment for some of the residents of Fernihurst Care Home. The project focused on intergenerational links.

After a morning of workshops using music, art and storytelling, the students produced a collection of songs that combined their own memories with those of some of the residents.

There was Bunny who liked dancing with Leigh and Dotty who had fourteen children.

The afternoon culminated in a celebration where both young and old were able to collaborate through a fusion of song and storytelling.

A good time was had by all with the students promising a return visit later in the year.

Something Fishy in the Art Dept!


A group of keen year 7 Art students recently spent a really great day working with fish!

Two fishmongers, Kay and Mary Bagwell from Sidmouth, brought in a large selection of the morning’s catch, including Dog Fish, John Dory, Red Mullet, Mackerel and Plaice. The day was extremely informative and interesting – a real eye-opener! The students spent the first part of the day learning about the local fishing industry from two local fishmongers and learning how to identify the different species. The students also learned how to fillet, prepare and cook the fish before tasting the various types of fish. Many were surprised at how much they enjoyed the taste of fresh fish.

They then made Art work including pen drawings, scratched tile drawings and Gyotaku print making. Gyotaku was demonstrated by artist Coco Hodgkinson, also from Sidmouth. This type of printmaking is a Japanese technique which involves rolling paint onto the surface of fish before placing them onto paper and T shirts to leave their prints!

Year 9 Students work with Phakama Theatre Company

Holocaust Memorial Day is an annual event held on 27th January, the anniversary of the liberation of Aushwitz and Auschwitz-Birkenau by Russian troops. 14 students from Year 8 took part in the event in Exeter this year, which focused on the theme 'Don't Stand By’. The commemorations included a reflective walk around sites of persecution through the ages which included the site of the Bideford Witch Trials in 1682, the Jewish and Dissenters Graveyards located outside of the city walls and the 18th Century Jewish Synagogue. The group also listened to a survivor of the Bosnian Genocide and a survivor of Auschwitz concentration camp spoke in the evening to a packed audience.

Students from schools across Devon were invited to submit articles for an exhibition in the Guildhall and to give a presentation to the public in the Southernhay United Reform Church. The memorials that we exhibited were excellent and the presentation, a selection of poems, sketches and readings, was very polished. The College is extremely proud of our students who perfectly understood the enormous importance of keeping the memory of the victims and survivors alive.

The students who took part were:

Megan Baldwin, Victoria Bungay, Ben Cockayne, Alex Guest, Jessica Guy, Aimee Harding, Toby Hill, Ellie Linehan, Lauren May, Mackenzie Prosser, Jules Roberts, Cameron Ross, Amber Sturgeon and Megan Vincent.

College Dancers Work with Primary Students

College Dance students have been working with primary students to create dances on set themes. On Thursday 4 February they presented their dances in front of students from all the primary schools and staff taking part in the project.

Principal, Mr Alexander, attended and was so impressed that he stayed for the entire session and said that he was amazed at the standard of the young people from the primary schools.

Primary students also presented dances they had created with their teachers which were all very impressive.

As part of the afternoon college students did an exhibition dance featuring dances that will be performed at the forthcoming dance show at the college: Blend. Blend features examination standard pieces performed by senior students: see details in the panel on the left
