As we near the end of the academic year following more lockdowns and more online learning, it’s of no surprise that our students have excelled in their sheer willpower to succeed and stay focused on the positives of life.

We now look forward to welcoming new groups of determined and ambitious students who should be proud of the resilience they have shown in overcoming the challenges they have faced this past year.

We already know that many students will come with a range of new talents, skills and fresh ideas, which we will enhance, invest time in and grow with.

Many will also come with a new sense of confidence and independence, ready to build on their knowledge and experience, while others will thrive with a little guidance and nurturing, which lots of colleges and schools are ready to provide, more so now than ever before.

As a sixth form, NewVIc is proud to be inclusive and diverse and as such, we create a strong sense of community among all newcomers – and our returners.

We provide students with the opportunity to connect with others by collaborating to produce, critique and share work.

As these new aspiring historians, medics, psychologists, entrepreneurs, artists and more, attend specialist lectures with leading universities, practice experimental science, overcome what seems like impossible maths challenges, participate in sports, and create products and performances, we should all celebrate, from the onset, each students’ determination to overcome challenges and accomplish their goals.
