Inter-Form Competition
So far this term within our Tutor groups we have completed the £5 challenge and the Form board challenge. The winners of the £5 challenge were M1 for raising nearly £40, well done.

The Form board challenge was a competition to see which tutor group could design the best form board. The form captains led this competition and each Tutor group were asked to add a variety of information about themselves, such as their achievements, their likes/dislikes, any hobbies/interests, and their academic progress. Well done to M1, M4, M5, M6, M9, and 11H for their entries.

Spelling Bee
Each Tutor group took part in the Spelling Bee competition organised by Ms Daya. Students really enjoyed the competitive nature of the competition and were extremely supportive of one another. Congratulations to the following students who got through to the quarter-finals; Aariz, Tajwar, Simrandeep, Manvinder, Vishal, Ruqayyah, Mohammed (KS3), and Karina, Muhammed, Jay, Olivia, Zaynab, Natalia, and Ramen (KS4). Congratulation to Tajwar, Manvinder, Jay, Natalia, Raman and Olivia for getting through to the semi-finals. Well done in particular to Olivia as this is the second time running. But, a huge congratulations to Tajwar and Ramen who represented Meriden College in the final. The final took place on Tuesday 20th March and was an amazing event. Both students were very composed considering that there was a big audience, but remained calm and performed very well. Another proud moment for Meriden College.


A massive thank you and well done to all of the students who took part in Inter-College this term. We fought hard and achieved three first positions for Year 7 girls football, Year 7 boys football, and Year 9 girls’ basketball. Also for Year 9 girls football, Year 7 and 10 girls basketball, Year 7 and 9 rugby, Year 10 football, we also finished in second place. Overall, we were winners of the girls’ basketball and joints winners for boys’ football and girls indoor football.

Gurveer has been the Sports Captain for his Year group since Year 7, and he has this to say about his experiences;

‘Over the past 5 years I have had the privilege of being a Sports Captain for my college Meriden. It was has been a rollercoaster experience of defeats and victories, but we always turn out on top! We went a whole year unbeaten in every sporting competition! Playing this role has taught me all the LORIC values (Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative, Communication) and all of these have played a big role in helping me get where I am today. Five years ago I was selected as becoming a Sports Captain, and now I stand here as a Deputy Head Boy, this experience will never be forgotten.’

Thank you to all of the Sports Captains for organising teams and showing good leadership.

PiXL Edge
Huge congratulations to Jasmine and Bhavnisha for achieving the Apprentice Award. And and even bigger congratulations to Saqib for achieving the Graduate certificate in such a short space of time.
