SIXTH FORM MATTERS
It has been a very busy few weeks in Sixth Form. The UCAS deadline for university entry in 2023 closed this week with just under 90 applications being submitted by our students. Many students have already received offers back, including several from first choice institutions. A particular mention must go to Polly who has received two offers to study Veterinary Medicine and Lucy who has achieved an offer to study History and Spanish at Cambridge University. A huge achievement for both students! We look forward to hearing lots more exciting news over the next few weeks! We have also had two visiting speakers with us in Sixth Form this week. On Wednesday, Year 12 and Year 13 had Relationships and Sex Education sessions delivered by Alice from the sexual health charity, Brook. The talks focused on the important issues of consent, STIs and contraception which the students found to be very informative. On Thursday, the Year 12 High Flyers cohort had a workshop delivered by Anna from St Peter’s College, Oxford University. The talk provided them with insider knowledge of the application process and what it is like to study at a prestigious university which the students found both interesting and inspiring.
In December we welcomed back a group of former students who kindly agreed to come and speak to some of our Year 12 students to share their experiences and successes of their first term at a variety of universities from Lancaster down to Swansea. They enlightened us on some of the details of their courses which included Mechanical Engineering, Pharmacy, Physics, Cybersecurity, History and Politics. They also told us of the hard work and determination that led to them securing their places at University, which in some cases included completed the Extended Project Qualification to enhance their UCAS applications. Our thanks go to Jack, Ben, Charlie, Lukas and Isobel. We wish them every success in their further education.
