Widening horizons at Coleshill Sixth Form

Students at Coleshill Sixth Form are enjoying a range of activities that will help broaden their horizons, both on an global and a local level. The confident year 12 and 13s have been welcoming Sinite (pictured) an exchange student from Switzerland, who will spend four months with the school and the students.

Continuing the international theme, enterprising students teamed up with B46, the Coleshill Business Networking Group, to explore ways of partnering local businesses in their fundraising efforts for a trip abroad.

More locally, the academy, which is part of the respected Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP) has been talking to Solihull Council about its new IT apprenticeships and looking at a scheme with Woodlands School, where Coleshill students will work alongside its students on an integrated skills project.

Coleshill is also celebrating further great news, as three of its students have been accepted onto the prestigious Cambridge University Law Conference. This is a real accolade for the school in its first year of teaching Law at A-Level.

Last week also saw the first deadline for applications to the school’s growing sixth form and Coleshill has already had some first class applications. The academy is delighted to have received significantly more applications this year, including from other schools, which reflects the increased popularly of Coleshill’s bespoke and vibrant sixth form. The school is still taking applications and have places available.  Applications are welcome from across all areas – there are no catchment area restrictions.  Please contact Mr Owen for further information: owen.g@thecoleshillschool.org or telephone 01675 462435.
