Sixth Form News
The spring term has been a busy one in the Sixth Form with students getting involved in a number of activities. The term started with the fantastic news that one of our students has received an offer to study dentistry - a first medical school offer for Christ’s Sixth Form.
Our year 12 students are now focussed on their university applications and students have attended university taster sessions at Oriel College Oxford for medicine, Surrey University for Law and many more have visits planned for the summer term. During to final week of term a group of students will be attending the Oxford and Cambridge conference in Epsom to get the very latest information from each subject on making competitive Oxbridge applications.
Students have also been working hard planning for their future careers. With the help of Kingston and Richmond Education Business Partnership, students have been hunting for work experience opportunities. Students have already secured placements in the civil service, law and engineering. More than 20 of our Business Studies students attended the World of Work Roadshow which provided networking opportunities with employers such as British Airways, Balfour Beatty and Ernst and Young. At the end of January a group of students had the opportunity to visit the offices of global architects and design company BDP in Clerkenwell.
Sixth Form students, as always, have been involved in supporting our School community –indulging in a spot of healthy competition with cake sales raising a substantial amount money for Children with Cancer UK, helping with our eSports day, running the year 7 disco and participating in Science Week.
At this time of year, we thank our outgoing year 13 student leadership team, superbly lead by Sami Al Safadi and Claire Grant, as they pass the baton on to our new head students and their deputies, Sabrina Robinson, Stephen Frank, Miles Burne and Jamie-Louise Brecher, who will, undoubtedly, bring much to these roles over the next year.
All four were selected as a result of fantastic performances in a very rigorous selection process of peer interviews, hustings and panel interviews with the School Leadership Team.â
