Willkommen zum virtuellem Austausch

Have the walls of your bedroom become a little dull and boring? Do you miss traveling to exciting places and making friends in other countries?

Then the German department has the perfect cure for you!!     


Dear Y9 German students,

as you will be aware our annual Exchange visit with the Hölderlin Gymnasium in Lauffen, Germany could not take place this academic year due to COVID and as we are unable to predict the future, it is not certain if it will be able to run in the next academic year. 

So that we continue our contact with our Partner School, and we perhaps find future Exchange partners, Mr Holfelder, the German Link Teacher in our Exchange School and myself, Mrs Dias-French, would like to establish Email links between you and German students.

This could either lead to a future exchange or just be a great opportunity for you to establish an email link with a student at a German school, improve your German and your partner’s English and above all, to get to know about your common interests! You can basically make a really good friend in another country without traveling! 

We will try our very best to match up English and German students according to their interests, so in order for us to be able to do a good job, I would ask you, if you are interested in taking part to write a little fact file about yourself(see document attached to SATCHEL), telling me about yourself, hobbies, interests, favourite music, TV programme etc.

If you are interested, please email with your Southam College email address by 22 February. Emails must go to:

I am looking forward to your fact file!!  Danke, Frau Dias-French

YEAR 10: Are you making the most of your Tassomai?

Did you know that you can revise Maths and English in Year 10 as well as Science?

While there is uncertainty about how you will be examined this year,  examined you will be and you need to be prepared.
There is still time to use Tassomai to make this easier for you, even if you have not made full use of it yet.
Just log into it and do the questions it tells you to do each day, it couldn’t be simpler.
While you are there, go into ‘Settings’ then ‘manage your classes’ and choose your Maths and English groups.

Forgotten your password?
Send Mr Eltringham an email and he can re-set it for you.

Got questions about Tassomai you are too embarrassed to ask?
Send Mr Eltringham an email, he’s there to help and he’s probably heard it all before.  He certainly won’t laugh at you.

year 10 food preparation and nutrition

The Southam Cook along continues.Today, Year 10 Food Preparation and Nutrition students were set the challenge to make a nutritionally sound dish suitable for a vegetarian. They needed to specify the type of vegetarian – Lacto, Lacto-ovo or vegan and explain how the dish met their nutritional needs. We had high participation and some fabulous dishes were created.

Keep going year 10 – it’s fab!

Thank you again for all the parental support

Mrs James Head of Food
