    Jane Marshall, Independent University Consultant, outlined the overarching features of a successful interview to Y13 this morning in her trademark, highly entertaining style. Thorough preparation, 'name dropping' (authors, researchers, academics, artists, composers etc), 'bigging yourself up' (highlighting academic skills, competencies and talents) as well as checking the logistics of travel means and timings are all essential. Arriving late, stressed and sweaty for such an important meeting should be avoided at all costs!

    We will remember them. Moving and poignant words which echoed across the Sixth Form Centre yesterday, a deeply emotional reminder of the debt of gratitude we owe to all the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their very lives, to ensure we continue to live in freedom to this very day.

    Our first UCAS application has been submitted and the student concerned received their first offer within 24 hours of applying! Early birds and worms spring to mind. As a result, there is quite a buzz amongst Year 13 and the motivation to polish personal statements, complete application forms and register for face to face or virtual open days to help finalise course and university choices has palpably increased.

    The Zen Zone is up and running, with a significant number of students joining Ms Ackland-Snow in the art room on Fridays for hot chocolate and a chat about the stuff that matters to them. I dropped by and was treated to a doughnut and was impressed with the candour and quality of the conversations I heard about later.

    Every teacher is driven by three things - the love of learning, a commitment to their learners and ultimately, the ambition to bring these two loves together. And that is what I have witnessed in every Sixth Form work space this week. The buzz of teachers and their students discussing subject based topics, asking each other questions and thriving in a dynamic learning environment.

    ‘You can have talent and ability, but you need the right attitude, the right mindset and behaviour - this generates belief, confidence and success.’ (Mark Foster). This sentiment, describing what makes an Olympic athlete successful, is especially pertinent to Year 12 and Year 13 students at the beginning of a new academic year; they have a fresh start, a blank canvas, with so many opportunities to thrive and flourish ahead of them.
