Biology students learnt about genetic engineering hands-on this week. Using a Bacterial Transformation Kit, they used the ‘pGLO plasmid’ to transform bacteria in a petri dish to express green fluorescent protein taken from the bioluminescent jellyfish ‘Aequorea victoria’, which causes the bacteria to glow green under UV light.


Here’s a message from the Principal Martin Sullivan about the recent Ofsted Inspection. Thank you to the whole College and Summit Learning Trust community for your hard work and dedication.


Solihull Sixth Form College and the Summit Learning Trust are celebrating as it has been graded a 'Good' college following a recent inspection by Ofsted, who also praised the college for the ongoing improvements it has made. Learn more on our website at

Exam Top Tip: Keep your handwriting neat and readable! If the examiner can’t read what you have written they can’t give you the marks. If you make a mistake, just put a line through what you have written and write what you want the examiner to mark.

Congratulations to our Duke of Edinburgh Award students. 15 learners have achieved the Bronze Award following an expedition from the College to Berkswell, while three of them also attained the Silver Award after completing an expedition in the Malvern Hills. Students also completed volunteering and learned valuable skills.


Exam Top Tip: Read the instructions in your exam paper thoroughly. For example, you don’t want to spend half the permitted time answering one question that is only worth 20% of the marks or attempting three questions, when you only have to answer two.

Film Studies students visited Cineworld Solihull recently for a screening of the biographical drama 'Back to Black', based on the life of British singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse. The documentary Amy is part of the A level Film Studies specification, so this film will help learners focus on key theories for the written exam.

There are free ice creams in the Refectory today for Stress Awareness Month – hurry, while stocks last!


Exam Top Tip: Make sure you take all you need for your exam, including pens/pencils, graphic calculator (if Maths) and anything else you are allowed to take in. Also make sure you are not breaking any exam board rules by taking in things you are not allowed like mobile phones!


For Culture Day on Monday 1 July, show your cultural talent, whether it is music, dance, fashion or other talent. Scan the QR code before 24 May to sign up to take part.

Thank you to Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, for taking time to speak to learners today. Students on our A level Social Science courses were present to hear from the Mayor about the work he does, ahead of mayoral elections in early May.


Exam Top Tip: Find out about the exam before you go in, including how long it lasts, how many questions there will be, what type of questions they are (multiple choice, essay questions, etc). If you are prepared, it won’t come as a shock on the day and you won’t panic in the exam.


New food options coming from Caterlink - loaded Doritos will be available from the Terrace from today. There is also a Salad Bar in the Refectory and you can add protein pots to any salad.


Please note that the Studio is closed until the end of the day on Tuesday 30 April due to Progression Exams. Apologies for any inconvenience.


Good luck to all Year 12 learners sitting Progression Exams (Key Assessment 5) this week.


Exam Top Tip: To help calm your pre-exam nerves, make sure you are organised. This includes checking what time you need to be present for your exam, what room you need to go to and leaving plenty of time to get there. Also make sure you know your candidate number. If you plan ahead you will feel much calmer on the day.


Please be aware that GCSE Maths, GCSE English and Core Maths classes will be running as normal during Progression Exams week (22nd-26th April). Students on any of these programmes will be expected to attend, unless they have a scheduled Progression Examination at the same time.
