Principal’s Blog 29th June 2018, 6th Form Open Days

This week we welcomed almost 250 prospective Year 12 students to experience life as a Hazeley 6th former (80 more than this time last year).

Our philosophy is very much focussed on giving students open and honest advice so that they can make the right choice for them. We want to fill our wonderful 6th form with students who really want to be part of it and who want to grow through engagement and contribution. With this in mind most of our sessions are either “typical” lessons or sessions run by our current students.

The feedback was simply excellent; phrases such as high expectations, supportive, friendly, welcoming, great teachers, caring, were used in abundance.

The best moment for me was listening to our Y12’s talking about their Hazeley values and then making them come to life in the way in which they supported and interacted with the prospective students.

Friday evening will see many of the students get together again at the prom and then say a temporary farewell until they come back for results day on the 23rd August.

A nervous summer, but hopefully one that leads to success and a very exciting key stage 5.
