Post 16 Taster Day for Year 11


Post-16 Taster Day

On Tuesday 21 January, we have a Post-16 Taster Day planned for Year 11.

Year 11 students will be off timetable and in non-uniform to give a realistic experience of being in further education. More specific details will be given to students next week but generally students will attend sessions on the subjects of their choice throughout the day and they will be supported with information on making decisions regarding their Next Step.  Once the day’s activities has been finalised I will ensure the Programme is put on the school website.

In addition, they will attend a relevant assembly and a study period in the Sixth Form Centre which will aid their revision and independent learning.  Practical sessions will also be available for students to attend, for example, the Football Development Team and the Netball Development Programme – should they wish to take part in this, they will need to bring with them the appropriate kit.

I really hope that the day will give our students a full flavour of what it could be like to study in a post-16 institution: if you have any concerns or would like anything clarified, please do not hesitate to contact me on the number below.

Kind regards,


Laura Milsom

Director of Sixth Form
