Last week our Year 11 pupils attended a taster day at our Sixth Form where they sampled a day in the life of a six former, which included A level lessons, free periods, and the very popular Singleton café menu.
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 Physical Education, 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, listening to music, playing games and catching up with friends in the vibrant Singleton House Common Room whilst taking advantage of our Singleton Café offering snacks and hot/cold drinks throughout the day.
As the day came to an end pupils gathered for the final assembly where they heard from key members of staff regarding their next steps.
Pupils enjoyed the day and left the following feedback:
“I enjoyed the taster day experience and think QEGS Sixth Form is where I want to continue my studies”.
“I enjoyed the subjects that I picked and found the information about the A-level course content really useful.”
“Such a good day! Sixth Form is very different to High School, I felt like a young adult.”
