Sixth Form News
The autumn term has been a busy one in the Sixth Form with the new Year 12 students settling in and getting involved in a number of activities.
Our year 13 students are now focused on completing their UCAS Applications with many already submitted.
As well as attending the UCAS Convention at Brunel University, 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.
Our Oxbridge students had a visit from Oxford University to share information on studying and applying to both Oxford and Cambridge. During the final week of term a group of these students will also be attending the Oxford and Cambridge conference in Epsom to get the very latest information from each subject on making competitive Oxbridge applications.
This year we have also had a number of students interested in applying to universities in the US and Canada. We were delighted to host a talk by Latymer Upper School, one of our partner schools, on applications to the USA and Canada which is a complex process.
An invaluable way to gain insight into potential careers is through work experience and with the help of Kingston and Richmond Education Business Partnership, students have been hunting for work experience opportunities for the Summer Term. Students have already secured placements in the civil service, law and engineering.
More than 20 of our Year 12 students also attended the World of Work Roadshow which provided networking opportunities with employers such as British Airways, Balfour Beatty and Ernst and Young.
Years 12 and 13 students have also had the chance to attend a range of career insight events hosted by leading employers. These have included Engineering, Games Development & Production, Architecture and Science.
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 Red Nose day, helping with our eSports day, running the Year 7 disco and participating in Science Week.
We are tremendously proud of our Sixth Form Leadership Team, comprising head students Louis Icke and Lucy Blitz and their deputies Alice Bowes Smith, Georgia Fitzgerald Monk and Alastair Copland (pictured above), for their fantastic support in their roles as ambassadors for the school and the strong relationships they have forged with the lower school.
