Head Student - Sally Grimm

Subjects Studied:  Maths, Biology, Geography and BTEC Sport

Hobbies: football, cooking and art

Enrichment Activities: Throughout my time at HGSS I have taken part in as many opportunities as possible. These include doing both Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh, becoming a year 11 prefect and Sports Leader, and going abroad on school trips. I really enjoyed doing the Sports Leader course not only because it is a great qualification, but because it helped strengthen my confidence and leadership skills. The adaptability I used to complete the course has also helped me in numerous situations outside of school.

Post Sixth Form Aspirations: I hope to study a Sports Science Degree at University, including a placement year abroad

Thoughts on the Sixth Form: Sixth Form is a great place to become more independent and continuously challenge yourself. Studying subjects that intrigue you in an environment that helps you grow is a great step up from the lower school.

Enrichment Activities: Throughout my time at Holmer Green I have been presented with an array of opportunities. I’ve completed my Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and am in the process of completing my Gold Award. I have also been a part of the school council numerous times over the years and in year 12 joined the sixth form management team as a year 12 representative. I am now a Head Student. Other amazing experiences trips that I have been on include two of the ski trips to Austria and multiple Woodrow trips. I am also a STEAM scholar, which has massively helped me with my future career aspirations. A part of this was completing a weekend long internship with AmbitionX, where I spoke to doctors and current medical students. My favourite part of this experience was the suturing lecture where I learnt how to do basic stitches. All of these enrichment opportunities have helped me gain confidence in working in a team and speaking publicly. 

Post Sixth Form aspirations: I would like to go to university and study medicine. From there, I would like to go on to be a doctor. 

Thoughts on the Sixth Form: I think our sixth form is a lovely community and the facilities provided are amazing. One thing I have particularly enjoyed is the independence and freedom that we are given in our sixth form as it gives hints of what life at university might be like.

Enrichment activities: The Sixth Form provides countless opportunities for us as students. Some of these I have taken part in are Duke of Edinburgh and Futures Day, where we met people in industries that interested us. Furthermore, every Wednesday is enrichment, there are many options for things to do, so there is something for everyone. It provides a good amount of time to relax and not have to focus on work, helping to maintain our work-life balance.

I also have an EPQ in business that further inspired my interests in the subject and led me to pursue the topic of E-Commerce more specifically.

Enrichment activities: Throughout my time at Holmer Green, I have taken part in a lot of activities such as being in the football team for one WHOLE game! Also, I have tried my best to consider the community by making sure there is a designated prayer room each year which at times, was logistically hard to gain because classes moved around. My goal is to get a permanent prayer room for this school and to build a thriving community who will benefit from this room. Outside of school I volunteer at events with my masjid. 

Post Sixth Form Aspirations: When I leave this school I would like a permanent prayer room to be my legacy. The course I would like to do after Sixth Form is an electrician apprenticeship.

Post Sixth Form aspirations: I’m on the fence between university and an apprenticeship, however I’m leaning towards an apprenticeship in the civil service.

My views on the Sixth Form: It’s been great honestly, year 12 was the best year of my life and not because of just school, but the new friends I made when moving from my previous school to this school for Sixth Form. However, we are expected to work hard.

Events team - Abdullah Iqbal

Subjects studied: BTEC Computing, Maths, Physics

Hobbies: martial arts, reading

Enrichment activities: Throughout Sixth Form, I have been a Mind Mentor and DofE Ambassador to help the lower school in their mental health and completing their DofE. I took on these roles as I realised the extent to how important mental health was during lockdown. For DofE, as I have taken Bronze and now Gold. I wanted to give students in lower school the knowledge that I gained from doing both of these awards. Mind mentoring has taught me communication skills by learning to listen carefully to another person and knowing how to ask questions to deepen my knowledge of who they are and any issues they have. Typically, this leads them to understanding themselves better, or feel they are understood. The Ambassador position has allowed me to similarly practise communication by concisely describing and explaining any useful tips and tutorials for DofE. During the summer, I also completed the NCS where I had to take a leadership position during the volunteering week and keep up the team morale by leading through example.

Post Sixth Form aspirations: I plan to continue studying Computer Science to either study Computational Physics at a master’s level or enter data analytics or accounting.

Thoughts on the Sixth Form: The Sixth Form as a whole is full of opportunities that allow you to develop yourself as a person. All Student Leader positions give students a chance to voice their opinion. And the opportunity of completing the DofE grants a qualification that tells any institution the student is a hard worker. Teachers and staff support each student to achieve their full potential by holding them accountable and informing them of all opportunities and how to attain them. The teachers do their best to make sure no-one feels lost.

Enrichment activities: Throughout my time at HGSS, I have embraced countless opportunities, including being a Sports Leader and participating in matches for the girls school football team. Another great prospect was the NFTS Film School trip in year 12 which provided a lot of information for the students. All of these areas have helped me become more confident, and to work well in a team based environment.

Post Sixth Form aspirations: I am hoping to attend university and take a degree in Sports, or Criminology.

Thoughts on the Sixth Form: I find the Sixth Form to be an exciting difference from secondary school where you are treated with more respect and given flexibility to study subjects you are interested in and learn in a manner that suits you. I have been given a huge amount of opportunities by HGSS, all of which look great on our CVs. Additionally, I like how much more participatory the lessons are due to the smaller class sizes.
