Induction Day 2021 16th June

17th June, 2021 by Sarah Knightley

Year 11 have had a tough 18 months and it was great to see the 2021 Induction Day so positively received. Students participated in Taster lessons in their chosen subjects with some students explaining how 'different' it felt to be in the Sixth Form. Many explained how excited they were to be back and can’t wait to get their courses underway (of course after taking a long leisurely summer break).

Then in the afternoon session the competition was hotting up (to be fair it was 24 degrees!) as the newly formed tutor groups battled for the title 'best tutor group'. Mr Parfitt was thrilled to be crowned the winner.

We can't wait for September and for this amazing group of students to be part of the Sixth Form – with a wider range of courses, enrichment opportunities and support for their next steps we know that they will take every opportunity and shine.

Have a great summer to our new year 12!
