WHEN THIS ROMAN Catholic sixth-form college in Harrow held a “St Doms' Got Talent” competition last year, three heats had to be scheduled to accommodate the 24 acts in contention. The student-run event was won by a One Direction tribute band. The 16- to 18-year-olds at this small institution, which was founded in 1979, are academic stars as well as pop stars. In 2013, 70% of them achieved A*, A or B grades in their A-levels, the second-best set of results in the country for a sixth-form college. It takes real commitment on the part of both pupils and the 110 members of staff to produce such sparkling results. Willingness to aid good causes was shown when 60 students and teachers slept rough to raise funds for the Cardinal Hume Centre. They raised £20,200 to support homeless young people. Teachers feel that colleagues go out of their way to help each other (84% positive, ranking fifth on the small list) and work is an important aspect of their lives (86%). www.stdoms.ac.uk

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
