Between now and the Summer holidays, Year 12 students will start looking into Post-18 options. In PSHE, we will show students how to log on to UCAS and will help them to start filling in their UCAS application for University. All Year 12 students will also benefit from guidance in writing their Personal Statements during PSHE. Of course not all students will choose to move on to university, therefore, we will target those students and provide them with information about other options which we will then explore in greater depth during the Autumn Term. We urge all students to start attending University Open Days now as they will be applying for their places in the Autumn Term. Further information can be found on the following link: https://www.ucas.com/ucas/events/find/type/open-day
Year 12 students may want to start thinking about looking at University Open Days and deciding which universities they would like to visit. More information on Open Days can be found on the following website:
If students wish to attend a University Open Day during the week, we are happy to authorise this absence. Students must simply complete a green absence form and show us their booking confirmation for the event.
Year 13 students have recently had an assembly to advise them on how to make their firm and insurance choices for University. Here are some links to two useful websites which offer further guidance:
If students wish to discuss their options further, we encourage them to talk to a member of the Sixth Form Team.
After Easter we're offering extra PE for Year 7. If you'd like to join, please go and change in the sports hall after period 5. Please note, there are no school buses when sessions finish at 4:20 so students are responsible for making their own way home. We hope to see you there!
