Year 11 pupils from various schools across Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire and the Ribble Valley attended a taster day at our Sixth Form where they sampled a day in the life of a sixth former.

Pupils were asked to arrive in smart business wear, our signature uniform for those attending our Sixth Form and chose four subjects that they were considering studying.

Pupils were welcomed by Mr Hindle, Head of Sixth Form, who gave them an insight into what to expect from the day.

Following their timetable pupils sampled subjects such as Art, Biology, Psychology and Sociology and met with our subject specialists who provided information on what to expect over the two-year course. When pupils had a free period, they spent time relaxing in the vibrant Singleton House Common Room, listening to music, playing games and talking to some of our current Sixth Form students about studying at QEGS.

After lunch, pupils heard from our Head, Mrs Gammon about what QEGS can offer and current Sixth Form students Alina Abbas and Haleema Chishti about their experience at QEGS Sixth Form.

Mr Hindle said “The day was a huge success; it was a pleasure to welcome pupils from various schools who are considering choosing QEGS to study A levels following their GCSEs this summer. We wish them all the best with their forthcoming exams and look forward to seeing them again over the summer on one of our enrolment days.”

QEGS Sixth form Enrolment will be on Thursday 22nd August and Friday 23rd August (further details to follow).
