Launceston College is the only state school to take part in this mammoth challenge. 4 days and 125 miles from Devizes to Westminster bridge.
Although the race was slightly curtailed this year due to St Thomas’s hospital not being able to host the finish line, one of the school teams came third in their section and all our crews finished well.
Every year we have a series of Sixth Form Interhouse sports challenges which include Football, rounders, netball, basketball and dodgeball, they are always well supported and keenly competitive.
Psychology Discovery Day
Sixth Form students enjoyed a hugely engaging Psychology Discovery Day at Marjon University Particularly interesting was experimenting with eye tracking technology and learning the differences between novice and expert performance.
Erasmus Scheme Opportunities
Sixth-Form students, Ella Stephens, Amy Widgery and Amy Vickery took part in a week’s visit to Romania in October as part of the College’s involvement in an Erasmus project. The project involved participation in a range of sporting and outdoor activities including rafting and climbing. Schools form Italy, Portugal, Czech Republic and Poland also participated in the week’s activities. This is a regular opportunity which will allow Sixth Form students to spend time and make friends with students in other European countries, spending time in their homes and schools and colleges.
Social and Charity activities
Throughout the school year, the Sixth form students engage in many social activities, some for fun and others to raise money for charities. These range from Hawaiian Shirt Day in the summer, to the Charity Santa Run at Christmas, and in between are cake Fridays and the famous Sixth Form Christmas Quiz.
