Our Colleges

Our Colleges provide an environment within the school, which provides care and a sense of belonging for students.  
All students will be attached to a college when they start SSCS and will bear the colour logo on their uniform.
The college system will provide a base for all whole school events where the student’s will compete for a ‘College Cup’ which is determined by attendance and good behaviour whilst also competing and participating in whole school events, such as sports day representing their college.
The Colleges are all named after Scientists whose work involved light and we draw a link with education, which is to enlighten.
Davy College is named after the inventor Sir Humphrey Davy who has helped to develop the miner’s safety lamp.
Herschel College is named after the scientist Caroline Herschel who was the first woman to discover a comet.
Swan  College is named after Sunderland born Joseph Swan, inventor of the electric light bulb in the nineteenth century.
