Yesterday Year 11 students who study GCSE History had the opportunity to take part in an interactive revision based workshop. Students played the part of the jury in a courtroom based interactive play - Hitler on Trial.
Our students were a credit to St Mary's. Their behaviour was impeccable.
Great to see so many of our aspiring Yr.11 students and parents attending our UCAS (university application) evening. At St Mary's Sixth Form College we pride ourselves on the support provided to all our university (and apprenticeship) applicants leading to highly successful transition from our college. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
On Thursday 9th February we held our 27th annual Careers Convention. The Careers Convention was a great success; this year students from Year 8 to Year 13 attended, with over 110 exhibitors present on the evening. At a time when there are over 573,000 young people aged 16 – 24 in the country unemployed, the purpose of the Convention was to give our pupils the opportunity to obtain the very best careers advice from experts in a variety of different fields of employment, training and Further/Higher Education.
Lots of students attended the lunchtime options taster sessions to learn more about Child Development and Health and Social Care. The students met baby Leo and baby Isabella. They tried on the pregnancy bump and took part in an activity about healthy eating. Year 12 students led the activities. Thanks to Olivia Bowring, Leah Keenan and Emma Pickup for their help. We hope the options session gave you valid information to make your choice. Good luck.
At 3pm on Thursday the Student Support Centre was magically turned into Hogwarts. More than 30 students from all year groups, dressed in their finest Harry Potter themed clothes arrived for the Harry Potter Book Night Quiz. They were greeted by Madam Pince, the school librarian of Hogwarts, and sorted into their houses by Professor McGonagall, with the help of the sorting hat.
