Principal’s Blog, Sixth Form Induction, Friday 28th June 2019

This weeks blog is brought to you by the Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Mayles.

On Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June, we held our Sixth Form induction, a time to meet our potential new Year 12 students for next year. The students had the opportunity to experience the subjects they will be studying for Key Stage 5, which included making strawberry jam sandwiches with restricted vision in Health and Social Care, deciding how our country should be run in Government and Politics and deciding the link between beer and nappies (data mining) in Computer Science. The students all now have a good understanding of the expectations the sixth form has, as well as the work and effort it entails to be successful.

The new students also got an opportunity to meet our current Year 12’s, who demonstrated their excellent leadership and team work skills in delivering study skills sessions for the students, as well as organising the inflatable activities we had on Thursday. It was lovely to see new friendships forming between the two year groups as well as with the many students who have joined us from the different schools across the city.

From the success of the last two days, we are all looking forward to working with these fantastic young people when they join us for Sixth Form.
