Year 12 start planning for their future

Year 12 spent yesterday morning at the Higher Education Fair which was held at the University of East Anglia. There were many universities present, all readily providing information and prospectuses about the courses at their establishments.

After wandering around picking up numerous booklets, Mrs Grove and Mrs Maher  collecting enough to fully restock the careers library, the girls went to a seminar. They were able to choose from talks on course choices, personal statements, medical science, social science and humanity courses.

Everyone enjoyed the morning and came away laden with goodies and with information to start thinking about choices for future study. The research into universities and the courses they offer will be continued in form time and enrichment lessons over the coming weeks.

University offers are already flooding in!

ukAll of the Year 13 university applications were completed and sent off well in advance of the closing date of January 15th. Within days the offers started to flood in.

To date all students have had offers or invitations to interviews and some have heard from all five of their university choices. This is fantastic news and the Sixth Form is really buzzing with excitement as new offers appear daily. So far no-one has had a rejection, quite something in this competitive market.

Well done to the girls for working hard on their personal statements and for preparing their application forms so promptly.
