There were also many seminars for the students to attend, Including applying to university, student finance and student life. The next step for those thinking of going to university will be for students to visit the websites of their shortlisted universities and register for their open days. Another good website to use is www.opendays.com which is a one stop website for students to search open days for many institutions.

U13 Rugby National Finals at Maidenhead RFC
"Yesterday, I refereed the national final of the rugby U13 cup, sponsored by School Sports Magazine, and hosted by Maidenhead Rugby Club. For the second consecutive year, Claires Court kindly provided two sixth form students who acted as Assistant Referees for me. I am writing to thank both you personally and the school for this. As last year, both of your students were mature, polite, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I am sure that this is exactly what you would expect from your students, but even so, I am very happy to acknowledge this. They were a great credit to the school!
Dylan Hartley, England Rugby captain, who could now afford to take time away from training for Saturday's game against Ireland, came along to present the awards and had photos taken with the students. Apparently he is not a big as we imagine. The quote of the day from Matt Hine was was "He's not as tall as Tom May, Miss"! And here's the proof!
