Charity Quiz Night!
We had a very successful quiz night at JCA run by Rebecca Dudley who is raising £2015 for 2015 for Mental Health Research UK! A fantastic turn out and a really well organised event by Becky. The quiz night raised over £80 - a really great start to her fundraising year.
If you wish to donate, Becky will be doing a huge amount of things this year that you can support, including a year long dryathlon when she turns 18. She will also be wearing a unicorn onesie on the first day of every month, running a marathon with a Winnie the Pooh twist, a sponsored silence plus more still to be announced!
Please sponsor her for her years attempts, as well as her individual ones!
1 in 4 people have mental health problems, but only 5% of health research spending goes to mental health
If you are applying to University, don't forget to apply for Student Finance!
Remember - It takes 6 weeks for your application to student finance to be processed so apply as early as possible. You don't need a confirmed place at university to apply and you can apply to your first choice university and change the details later if you need to.

Recruitment and Year 11 Interviews for CLF Post 16
We have now had 497 applications for Year 12 CLF Post 16!
We have now interviewed well over 400 students for CLF Post 16 next year. Just a few more interviews which are taking place across sites over the next few weeks. There is still space for any more who wish to be considered for a place.
Our blocking for subjects and courses into the curriculum is well underway, and we will have numbers for subjects and staff soon.
If students would like to still apply, they can online at www.clfpost16.org
Curriculum 2015/16 Educating a city: widening our curriculum offer
We want to make CLF Post 16 as accessible as we can for our students. Our curriculum offer therefore needs to widen. We are planning to run additional courses this year, such as AS Applied Law, a new STEM course and a new Drama and Music School. If staff are interested and have ideas about running new courses, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
