Sixth Form @ The Spires College Quiz Evening
We know that the restrictions of lockdown can feel isolating, however, one really positive thing discovered during the first lockdown was the emergence of new and different ways of socialising and connecting with people virtually.
One such way was the surge in people doing online quizzes. With this in mind we are inviting you to our virtual ‘pub quiz’ style evening for our Sixth Form students and their families. Teams will comprise of your household, with the quiz being hosted using the Sixth Form Google Meet link. Students will need to log into Google Meet as they would for Sixth Form assemblies.
The quiz will be held on Thursday 4 February 2021 at 7:30 pm
- Rounds will include:
- Picture and Dingbats
- General knowledge
- Film and Television
- Questions from a range of our Sixth Form subjects… (let’s see how much our students know about their subjects)
Mr Davies will be your host/quiz master for the evening (think more Bradley Walsh than Jeremy Paxman).
At the end of each round the student in the team will need to submit the answers using Google Classroom.
- 1st Prize: £30 Tesco voucher
- 2nd Prize: £20 Tesco voucher
- 3rd Prize: £10 Tesco voucher
If you would like to enter a team, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you in the virtual world for some quiz fun!

Each year, many of our students take part in the NCS programme, which is a youth programme like no other. It is designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds, and the experience will help give a clearer idea of what participants want for their future.
On the NCS programme participants mix with a new crowd and take on fresh challenges together. Along the way, they get a taste for independence and pick up skills that will help them reach their future goals. They are given a platform to have their voices heard and pursue a passion project. The four week programme includes a residential activities week with activities such as windsurfing, kayaking, high ropes, SUP boards and problem solving challenges, with the focus on developing confidence, leadership and team work. There is a second residential week, spent living at Plymouth University, learning essential life skills such as budgeting and cooking and providing a taster of independence. This week includes workshops covering subject such as health and wellbeing, anxiety, presentation skills, communication skills and a creating effective personal statements. The other two weeks are spent planning and executing a project in the local community.
