At half past two on Thursday the 9th July, a group of fourteen sixth formers departed from the school en route to Stansted Airport, where they would fly to Madrid, Spain.

First impressions? Hot. To be precise, 39 degrees. Despite the shock of the heat, we were soon out exploring the city and absorbing the culture. On the first of many walks, we wandered over to Retiro Park passing the quirky street vendors as they called out in Spanish. Yet this was just one of the places we would experience. Over the next 72 hours we’d visit Atocha Station, The Plaza Mayor, The Puerta del Sol, The Reina Sofia Art Museum, The Gran Via, a cinema (where we saw the Minions movie in Spanish), The Prado Art Museum, The Royal Palace and experience the outskirts of Madrid from above in a cable car.

There were many opportunities to utilise our Spanish speaking skills. For instance, in our free time we were allowed to explore the streets of Madrid and we had to use our knowledge of the language to communicate with shop assistants, who were only too happy to humour us. Likewise, our Spanish was invaluable when ordering our tapas as we stepped out of our comfort zones and tried the local cuisine (our personal favourite were the croquetas).

The highlight of the trip, for us, was getting to see Guernica, a painting by Pablo Picasso portraying the Spanish Civil War. After learning about the context and meaning in lessons, we were in awe of the sheer size of it and the amount of detail which we had overlooked in the photocopies. It was definitely an unforgettable experience.

Would we go again? ¡Sí!

 

GCSE

I am very pleased with our GCSE results this year. While our overall % for the proportion of students gaining 5+ A*-C grades including English and Mathematics is the same as 2014, the progress the students have made, particularly in Mathematics, has improved rapidly. We have a number of students with multiple A*/A grades and over a third of our students will leave with at least 1 A*/A which is very pleasing. Our students and staff have worked incredibly hard and I thank them for their efforts this year. With our excellent pastoral support system, enrichment opportunities and the development of social, moral, spiritual and cultural aspects of school life, the addition of these exam results now equip our students well for the challenges of higher education, training or employment in the years to come.

Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School is celebrating an excellent set of results for all of our Sixth Form students this year. Our students have really taken on the challenge of aiming high and their hard work and dedication has paid off.  I feel so privileged to be working at a school where we have such talented and enthusiastic staff, supporting students every step of the way through their studies. I also thank them for their relentless efforts – what a great team!  We are proud of our 96% pass rate at A-Level, (which is an improvement on 2014), along with a staggering 21% increase in the proportion of students gaining 3 passes at A-Level.  We have also seen improvements in the proportions gaining A*-C grades and A*-A grades.  Our pass rates at AS-level have also significantly improved and the numbers of Merits, Distinctions and Distinction* in our level 3 vocational courses have also increased dramatically.

This is an excellent way to start the new chapter in Sixth Form education at LCHS, as we look forward to opening up our new State of the Art Sixth Form building in a few weeks time and we look forward to seeing our results soar further in the year ahead.

future scholar

On Wednesday May 20th, 5 Year 9 students attended a ‘Future Scholar Award’ day at the University of York. The day was organised by The Russell Group of Universities and allowed students to have a taste of what it would be like to study at a Russell Group University. Throughout the day the students attended a lecture in Social Policy, had a tour around the campus and took part in a practical Chemistry session.
