University of Essex visit Cecil Jones

As part of the on-going Enrichment programme for Sixth Form, this week we hosted a visit from a member of the Outreach Team from the University of Essex who delivered a session on Study Skills to the Year 13 students in preparation for their upcoming A Level exams and for when they go to university; while the Year 12 students, at their own request, had an information session on Mental Health.

These were the latest in a full schedule of informative sessions, guest speakers and activities throughout the year which have included talks from presenters from Career Ready; a visit to a careers fair at the Emirates Stadium; representatives from charities and support organisations talking about their work; and a team-building session with the Royal Marines.
