Few students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull have shown greater commitment to achieving College Colours than Logan Barton, who has just completed a tandem sky dive to gain his College award.
College Colours is a scheme run by The Sixth Form College, Solihull which encourages students to stretch and challenge themselves. Students are granted this prestigious award if they can demonstrate leadership, social responsibility and team work and complete a “Stretch & Challenge” activity.
For Logan Barton (aged 17, from Shirley), he chose to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity by completing a tandem sky dive, and fewer activities are more challenging, to a person’s nerves at least! He has raised more than £450 for the charity so far and donations are still coming in.
“I had never been in a plane in my life,” commented Logan, “but I was determined to do this sky dive and to raise money for Help for Heroes at the same time. I was pretty nervous sitting in the plane before my jump, but I did it and it was amazing!”
Logan came to the College from Alderbrook School and is currently studying Geography, Geology and Statistics at A level. He is hoping to continue his Geology studies at university in September.
All the students who are successful in their applications for College Colours will be awarded a College Colours scarf at our annual black tie College Awards Evening in June.
