Sixth Form Induction for September 2017

6th Form September 2017
 
This week we welcomed over 350 prospective students through our gates to join us for our Sixth Form Induction. The students took part in taster lessons for four different subjects and of activities and assemblies across Tuesday and Wednesday. The whole event is designed to help them make their final decisions about which A Levels to study and give them invaluable advice about how to successfully tackle what is considered by many to be the most difficult transition in education.

The event was initiated with an assembly by the Sixth Form Leadership Team which prompted the students to think beyond A Levels and look for the purpose of this next step in their education; what are they aiming for? Parents and carers were guided to reflect on this question too, during the evening event. Students were constantly supported and guided to question their choices and make sure that they were making the right decisions at this critical juncture.

From the many excellent sessions that took place over the course of the two days, the student assembly was definitely a highlight. Our current Student Leadership Team shared the lessons learnt from their first year of A Level study and were on hand to answer questions and provide expert advice.

Students commented that they had learnt a great deal from the induction and many have had the chance to reflect on their choices, while others have been reassured that they are on the right path.

We look forward to September and welcoming our enthusiastic new cohort into Glyn Sixth Form.
