The only way is up for Brandon!

The only way is up for Brandon Sutherland-Parker, a Year 13 student at Richmond Sixth Form College, as in just three days, his media studies music video attracted over 2,000 hits on Youtube!  Brandon’s fabulous A-level media coursework music video was inspired by his passion for dance.  Six months in the making, Brandon choreographed, produced, directed and edited the film to the track ‘Level Up’, by Ciara, choosing this song for its catchy tempo and positive message and vibe. His concept developed from an idea to showcase dance from a number of different angles and sets within College, culminating in a mass ensemble on one of the sports fields.

This year, we ran a competition for students to design the School’s Christmas Card. 

We are delighted to announce that the winning entry is a stunning design by Christy Swift in Year 12.  Christy’s beautiful artwork stood out as it really sums up the feeling of Christmas in our community, with the iconic Richmond Castle as the backdrop and a vibrant red robin adding just the right amount of festive cheer. So, a huge thank you to Christy for creating such a fabulous design.

STEM Careers: Inspiring more women to become engineers Eight Year 12 students, from Richmond Sixth Form College, have taken part in ‘Project Dare’ an inspiring initiative to encourage more women to pursue a career in engineering.

Hosted and implemented by Network Rail and ARUP, over a period of 5 weeks, the students worked on a range of activities, including team-building tasks designed to introduce them to some of the constraints faced when working in engineering. They also had the opportunity to attend a ‘Careers Speed Shop' where they met employees from across ARUP and discussed their career paths with them.
