SIXTH FORM

FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM

Dear Parents,

The Sixth Form team are now undertaking the one-to-one mentoring sessions and setting targets with all students. Year 12 students should be continuing to use the school Careers Website to be identifying possible courses for further education. Our series of talks about different areas for careers should also be helping students to clarify their ideas for the future.

The U18A team were only 3 goals short of their target of half the score, while the U18B team drew. Players of the match were Robyn Watkins, Victoria Saunders and Moyin Forsythe for the A team and Olivia McGregor, Sofia Sethi and Charlotte Hole for the B team. Well done.
