Sixth Form Taster Day

On Friday 24th November our Year 11 students had the unique opportunity to sample life as a sixth form student at St. Mary’s. They chose five subjects to try from the wide range of AS Levels and vocational courses that we offer. Staff delivered sample lessons from their course to ensure students could find out what the subject involved and the areas they would study if they picked this course next year.

The students attended in non-uniform and had the opportunity to use the Common Room and sixth form facilities. Feedback from staff was brilliant – the students really involved themselves throughout the day. Mr Rayner has been organising the taster day for over 10 years and described the Year 11 students as the best set of students that have ever been involved with this event!

The purpose of the day is to help the Year 11 students make an informed decision about which courses they will study next year and understand the support and high quality teaching they will receive in the sixth form at St. Mary’s.
