Sixth Form seminar
Sixth Formers have an hour each week during which they are encouraged, challenged and inspired by a programme designed to help them prepare for life beyond school. Seminar focuses on three areas: ‘Getting to University/Life Beyond School’ (UCAS and other applications), ‘Surviving University’ (PSHEE and other life skills like budgeting and cooking simple meals) and ‘Leaving University’ (Careers).
A variety of speakers: local professionals, alumni and friends of the school speak to the pupils and help them as they seek to decide on a career path and make key decisions about their future. Representatives from universities come and speak to pupils in order to help them as they apply through UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admission Service).
