UK Coronavirus COVID-19 Pandemic WARNING! Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham Outbreaks Probable / Local / Pandemic

By: N_Walayat

Sheffield Britains fifth largest city like the rest of Britain's big cities is in the calm before the Coronavirus storm stage. Where barely a couple of weeks from now everything isa likely to change when Corona viral outbreaks start taking place across the UK. Because unfortunately the NHS is barely able to cope with the regular winter flu let alone a strain that is 100 times as deadly so the NHS will soon be overwhelmed with seriously ill patients requiring intensive care, and it won't take more than a dozen such patients to tip the healthcare systems in each of Britain's big cities such as Sheffield, unable to cope with even small volumes of Coronavirus ill where the only response to 111 calls will be for patients to self quarantine themselves at home as hospitals become hotbeds for the transmission of the virus, so places definitely to steer clear of to avoid becoming infected.

Sheffield has a new hidden gem courtesy of our own river Banksy that most Sheffielders let alone visitors to the city will be totally unaware of. Painstakingly erected Sculptures IN the river Don that first started appearing 3 years ago and currently number more than 20. The sculptures can be found just behind the Wicker, not far from where Castle Market once stood, and can be viewed from the embankment as well as the road bridge and foot bridge.

This video shows the 20+ sculptures as they were in July 2019, that includes footage of the artist at work so you get to see how these magical pieces of art were put together in situ, in the river. So if your in Sheffield then do pop down and see them whilst they last as all it take is a few days of heavy rain fall for the river Don to wash many of the 20+ pieces away.

By: N_Walayat

It's that time of the year when Year 9 students will be trundling along with their parents to their schools GCSE Choices evenings, presentations of what subjects students could select for their GCSE studies in Year 10, and 11. Though in reality for most their won't be much of a choice as the choices forms appear to have been carefully crafted to give the illusion of choice when in reality the decisions for who will do what have already been made by the schools aimed at maintaining or improving their schools position in the GCSE results tables and in view of limited spaces for resource intensive subjects such as Computer Science which tend to be over subscribed by many times the number of places available and thus only a fraction of students will actually get places on their chosen subjects.

Sheffield Best Secondary Schools Trend Analysis 2018, GCSE Choices 2019 / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

It's that time of the year when Year 9 students will be trundling along with their parents to their schools GCSE Choices evenings, presentations of what subjects students could select for their GCSE studies in Year 10, and 11. Though in reality for most their won't be much of a choice as the choices forms appear to have been carefully designed to give the illusion of choice when in reality only a few will be offered real choice of subjects due to the fact that high demand courses such as Computer Science will tend to be heavily over subscribed and thus only a fraction of those who choose this will get what they want.

Anyway, here is our definitive answer to the question what are currently Sheffield's best secondary schools based on trend analysis which ranks the schools in terms of consistency of results, as results do tend to vary from year to year. The graph represents Sheffield's Top 18 secondary schools out of a total of 51 rated in terms of consistency in attaining high rankings in the school league tables from 2001 to 2018, for 5 A-C GCSE's from 2001 to 2016, since when available data has changed for most schools to measuring Attainment 8 Scores, so data has been normalised as a % of top scoring school so as to continue this trend series.
