Reach for the Stars 2018

Reach for the Stars 2018

Last Monday evening our newly formed cohort of 50+ Year 11 ‘Reach for the Stars’ students gathered in the inspiring new Sixth Form Study Centre for the launch event of 2018.

Assistant Headteacher Mrs Wright presented a very engaging growth mindset session to start the programme with a bang and the students will now be meeting every Tuesday morning to focus on specific strategies to nail those top grades that open those all-important doors in the future.

This highly successful initiative, which started last year, resulted in more students than ever achieving beyond their predicted grades and securing places at our popular and successful Sixth Form.

The intensive, but supportive programme at this crucial time in our students’ lives, culminates in an inspiring trip to Oxford University. Along the way students have access to work in the Sixth Form Centre with all the privileges our Sixth Form students enjoy, including free hot drinks and snacks!

Head of Sixth Form Mr O’Kelly and Deputy Head of Sixth Form Mrs Timotheou are very much part of the Reach for the Stars initiative and will be on hand to support the Year 11s with their studies, ongoing advice for entry to the Sixth Form and information about life at Post 16.
