Mrs Rogers' Weekly Words Lent 5
Today, like every other day in the Sixth Form, has been jam packed with activity and opportunity. Anouska and Josh, pictured here, attended the PTA AGM with me, to say a huge 'thank you' to our PTA for all the support they give us throughout the year. Amongst their contributions are the 'Aim High' awards which enhances our celebration of Year 12 during the summer term, the funding of the photo booth at the Sixth Form Ball as well as the donation of farewell gifts to our Year 13 students at their leavers event.
Maud Millar, CEO and Co-Founder of the 'getadapt' smart phone free app which enables students to create comprehensive, specification based revision plans on their mobiles in minutes, spoke to the students about the app in assembly. With mocks and summer exams on the horizon, it will be an invaluable tool for all to use. Technology can be incredibly helpful.
This week is National Apprenticeship Week and the students have been reminded about the myriad quality opportunities on the market, with many of them coming online in the coming weeks. Many apprenticeship providers are adjusting start times to take into account the academic year, offering start dates in September. During the Year 12 Future Focus week at the end of the summer term we will be inviting expert speakers in to offer guidance and practice on psychometric, individual and group, as well as telephone interviews to ensure that students are fully informed and prepared for both apprenticeship and graduate interviews further down the line. Exciting times for our young men and women.
