Sixth Form Subject Info. Afternoon

On Wednesday afternoon, Year 11 students attended an assembly led by Mr Cannon and Mr Matthews on exam preparation and the transition from Year 11 to Sixth Form or college.

Public examinations are already underway, so it is important for students to start thinking about their intentions for next year - not only what subjects they want to study - but the qualifications needed to study them.

After the assembly students were invited to our drama studio, where each subject area had set up a stall manned by teachers and Sixth Form students, to provide information on the courses they offer in Year 12.

A lot of the students had an idea of what they wanted to study and found the stalls and information very useful. We hope to see you all next year!

The Year 12 Taster Day will be on Wednesday 28th June 2017. Those who have received offers to study here next year in Year 12 will receive information on this through the post in due course.
