As part of the campagin, Southam College are part of Echo Eternal’s Horizons Festival 2021 and we are delighted to present our calendar of events, supporting this year’s theme, ‘be the light in the darkness.’ 

In lessons today, Year 9 students will follow our calendar of events, exploring our assigned Holocaust survivor, Dov Reichmann.

9WE6 Christmas Cheer

9WE6 have really embraced the spirit of Christmas and shown incredible kindness and compassion this festive season. They have been collecting items for local food banks, and making Christmas cards for local care homes.

I have been blown away by their generosity and thoughtfulness, they have really embodied our Southam College core value of ‘kindness’.

Well done 9WE6!
