A fresh Sixth Form perspective

While our sixth form has been an integral part of Launceston College for numerous years, it’s safe to say it hasn’t been fully involved with the house system implemented 6 years ago and has remained partly removed from the main school. As a result, with the encouragement of Mr Rush a group of Year 13 students have been working on a Sixth Form Executive team which ultimately, will advocate our sixth form to younger students.

Since forming, we have worked on various projects:

Sixth formers are now able to participate in House based competitions, Geovann and Ollie are encouraging them to sign up and get involved.

Nicole has been working with the IT department to raise awareness of our sixth form by creating “blog” type posts so that Launceston College students can be aware of our progress.

Additionally, Gabriella has been meeting with our Principal Mr Maywood to ensure we have communication networks running between the sixth form and Senior Leadership Team.

Last Friday, encouraged by Geovann, 13JTM held teacher vs. sixth former dodgeball and raised almost £60 for Children In Need in a single lunchtime.

As a collective, we hope to create a legacy, which will be upheld and improved upon every year. It is time for our sixth form to have a voice, and we hope this communication sheds light upon the accomplishments of our sixth form.
