Year 11s are Sixth Formers For-a-Day
On Friday 8th February the Sixth Form Team welcomed our Year 11 students as sixth formers for the day. The students had previously chosen five taster sessions to take part in, allowing them to try a range of subjects that we offer in the Sixth Form. The students started the day with an assembly where they were given their timetables. As part of the day, the students came dressed in accordance with the sixth form dress code. We were very impressed with how smart the students looked, with five students winning an Amazon Voucher in our ‘best dressed’ competition. The students were also able to use the sixth form facilities in the sixth form building, accessing the sixth form canteen, social zone, outdoor areas and table tennis facilities during break and lunchtime.
The staff running the taster sessions were very impressed with how the students took the opportunity to shine and got ‘stuck in’ with all activities. We were also pleased with comments from students in their feedback forms, thanking us for organising the event and stating how the day had definitely helped them to make an informed decision, with students highlighting how it had motivated them to work harder to ensure they achieved the entry requirements to study their preferred subjects next year. Well done Year 11, you did Ms Joyce, Mrs Nurse, Mr Oswick and your tutors proud!
