Year 11 Taster Days

On the first Wednesday and Thursday in July, we welcomed back our Year 11 students to take part in some ‘Taster’ sessions from a selection of the A Levels on offer from September.  The subjects ranged from Art to Digital Media, from Economics to Maths, from Music to Sociology and everything in between.  Students were able to sample a little flavour of being a Sixth Former whilst being able to confirm or reflect upon their A Level choices, having experienced an A Level ‘lesson’ and having had the course content explained in more depth.

The feedback following the two days has been very positive.  “The sessions were well explained.”  “I was able to know what courses I wanted to do.”  “It [Sociology] was surprisingly interesting and made me consider it for an A Level.”  “There was nothing to improve upon – the two days were perfect.”

Thank you to all the staff involved in this activity, to the teachers delivering the sessions and to the Year 11 students who immersed themselves in the days and made the event so successful
