Welcoming Back Our Sixth Formers

Welcome back one and all.

The start of a new term always brings great excitement and this year is no exception. Whilst we all face the myriad challenges Covid brings, we do so together, if anything the situation is helping to develop a real esprit de corps. Friendships are being formed, heads are buried in books or laptops, and the energy in our Sixth Form centre is palpable.

Phantom of the Opera – Maya-Maria

From the moment I started reading “Phantom of the Opera” by Gaston Leroux, I felt as if I was watching a live performance, every page lured me to read more and more about the beauty of this book.

What inspired me to create a cake based on this story was the way in which identity was represented through the mask. The phantom is portrayed as wearing half of a regular mask, which helps to better understand his character: half of him is like a ghost, unknown and unseen by the others, while the other half of him is still human as he has emotions that he gives in to. Masks are known to hide people’s faces, but I never thought the structure of a mask can give so much meaning

The Book Thief – Abigail

My biscuits are based on The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. They have some of my favourite quotes and important images from the book.

Poetry by Heart Competition Winners

Congratulations to Lara (Y12) and Poppy (Y7) for winning the KS5 and KS3 school rounds of the Poetry by Heart competition! Lara’s rendition of Duffy’s poem ‘The Last Post’ was powerfully haunting. Poppy’s recitation of The Jabberwocky showed great spirit and captured the poem’s sense of surrealism.
