Sixth Form Life

At Driffield Sixth Form we are always committed to encouraging and supporting our students to achieve excellence in their studies, but we also understand that the overall Sixth Form experience forms a fundamental part of the student’s two years with us. The run up to Christmas always provides opportunities for this aspect of the Sixth Form and this year has been no exception. The final week of the winter term saw the annual Year 12 vs Year 13 Girls rugby match take place. There was some excellent play from both sides, with some great passing and crunching tackles in evidence. Eventually led by their top scoring captain, Sophie, the Year 13 students emerged victorious, although the Year 12 team gained some valuable experience in preparation for next year’s game. The Sixth Form held the event as part of their fundraising efforts for the new Songali Youth Centre in Malawi, which three of our students will be visiting as part of their visit to Malawi in the summer.

2018 ended in the traditional manner for the Sixth Form, with the annual Sixth Form Revue taking place in the North Hall on the last afternoon of term. This is a student led showcase where both Year 12 and Year 13 students and staff present a range of acts to their peers, often with hilarious consequences. This year highlights included an epic “lip sync battle” between Tom and Libbigail (and their backing dancers) where Tom’s Beyonce tribute emerged victorious following a student vote. Additionally Lucy performed her comical audition piece from a university interview, which had previously seen her secure an offer to study comedy writing and performance next year. There were a range of other acts and the usual staff panto to round off the event, with all students leaving for a well-earned Christmas break, thoroughly entertained.
