Please can all Y11 attending Carding Mill Valley over the next three days remember to be at school for 7.15am as the bus will be leaving promptly at 7.30am. Students are allowed to bring a mobile phone if they choose but school rules apply to this regarding the usage. Estimated return time to Southam College is 6pm but we will keep you updated via socials and the school website. All students should bring the following:

  • Packed lunch
  • Large amount of water
  • Suitable bag (backpack ideally)
  • Shoes for the day (ideally ones they do not mind getting wet if they want to go in the river but they must be suitable for walking in) and a spare pair (wellies are ideal as their trip shoes)
  • Waterproof clothing
  • Layers
  • Sun cream/hat
  • Do not wear jeans! They may want to bring spare bottoms 
  • Pen and pencils
  • Some change as the cafe might be open 

Message from Mr Johnson

Hello Year 11, 

I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer break. I am looking forward to seeing you all return back to school this week. 

Year 11 is an exciting year, for some of you this may be the last year at Southam College before you go onto to a new adventure, others may be looking forward to the prospect of Sixth Form next September. 

The thought of this right now may seem a little scary with so much to do. As you think of these things, remember how much you have achieved so far in your time at Southam, how far have you come since you started your first September in Year 7? This should demonstrate to you how much you can achieve this year.

I was extremely encouraged to see students in year 13, 11 and 10 celebrating their exam success on results day. A testament to the results of hard work. 

Remember, everyone at Southam College is keen to support you to be the best you can be. Support is available from subject teachers, form teachers, or myself. We are ready to work together so that your hard work is rewarded. 

See you soon

Mr Johnson
