Sixth form students enjoy a trip to Brussels

Our sixth form students took the Eurostar to Brussels for a trip to the European Parliament where they had the chance to test their French while learning more about the institution.

There was also time during the three-day visit to make their own chocolates and explore the city via its Metro system.

“I found the trip to be both informative and fun. As a student of French I also enjoyed chatting with the locals,” said Sofia Reeves.

"The trip was interesting and we had lots of fun. I would definitely recommend other students to take opportunities to travel and see the world," added student Tom Willet.

The Careers, Education, Information, Advice and Guidance programme is well under way and showcases opportunities for our students when they leave us at 18.

“It's never too early for students to start learning about the options available to them beyond A Levels. I have been so impressed by their attitude towards and engagement with these opportunities,” said Mrs Hornby, Head of Sixth Form.

There has been a visit to Nottingham Trent University where students took part in workshops on university life, had a tour of the campus and learnt more about student finances and job prospects post-graduation.

The trip was followed by a mock assessment day when the sixth formers were taught about the high expectations of an assessment centre along with employability skills.
