Head Boy & Girl
Welcome to the Sixth Form 2019-20
A warm welcome from the Sponne School Sixth Form Team! The new Year 12s have started the year off well and the Year 13s are currently focused on their personal statements and future career options. We have an excellent Sixth Form Student Leadership Team this year and below they will tell you a bit more about themselves.

From joining Sponne in year 7 I knew it was an incredible school which would help me achieve my absolute best, which it has done very well so far. In Sixth form now the A-levels I take are Chemistry, Maths and History, a challenging selection of subjects which the teachers are doing an impeccable job of getting us all through. Outside of lessons I, along with the head boy, run a debate club for years 9-11. This club allows students in secondary education to begin to widen their abilities and skills in respect to public speaking and discussing some difficult concepts. As well as this I am running a new Film Club for Years 7-9, which encourages friends to relax, watch films and hopefully meet more people with similar interests. Along with this I have done subject specific mentoring for year 7’s in German!
I have been at Sponne since the very beginning of Year 7 and am so grateful for all the support and opportunities I have been provided with by this incredible school and the brilliant staff that work here. I am taking Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths at A-Level and hoping to use those to study either physics or natural sciences at university. I have my eyes set on studying at Cambridge University so I definitely have my work cut out for me and will gladly welcome the challenges ahead. I also run the debate club for Years 9 through 11 alongside the head girl, Anya Crighton. In addition to the debate club, I will be organising sporting events within the school for Year 12 and Year 13 boys, and will hopefully be setting up a society for those interested in the further study of STEM subjects.
I love being a part of Sponne Sixth Form. I study Chemistry, Biology and English Literature as A-Levels which are all subjects I am very passionate about! While I love my subjects I also love to get involved with extra-curricular activities. Since year 12 I have been running my own Musical Theatre club for the lower school, as well as for year 13 becoming the sixth form Anti Bullying leader and Mental Health Ambassador. On top of this I am starting societies for many different university or career choices, for example the Medical Society. I have loved my time in sixth form so far as it has given me all these opportunities and I look forward to continuing with them in my final year.
My time at Sponne started over 7 years ago as a new pupil in year 7. Deciding to continue my education at Sponne after primary was by far one of the most important but also best decisions I have made in my life so far. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in years 7-12 and am now in the final stage of my time here, completing my A levels in Maths, Physics and Music in the summer of 2020. My involvement in the fantastic array of extra-curricular activities available here at Sponne helped me enormously in terms of settling down and meeting new people. I have been lucky enough to have some fantastic experiences during my time, some of which have included touring with the music department to France, Germany, Holland and
Belgium, as well as having the opportunity to perform around the UK both with Sponne and the county music trust NMPAT in many famous venues including the Birmingham Symphony & Town Hall; the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal and Derngate in Northampton.
I feel very honoured to be given the role of deputy head boy at Sponne for 2019-2020 and am looking forward to working particularly on volunteering and work experience opportunities for all pupils, but especially those in year 10 – 12 to assist them with making the right decisions about the next stages in life, whether that be into college, work, an apprenticeship or to sit A levels and potentially move onto university.
