Year 10 students at West Hatch High School were offered an insight into life as a Sixth Former at a Taster Day.
The day was filled with sessions from all the Sixth Form subjects with the Year 10 students able to create their own timetables and choose which sessions they attended.
This gave them the opportunity to see what their current subjects (including English, History and Maths) would be like at A-Level and also to try out subjects they cannot currently study, such as sociology, psychology and CACHE (childcare course).
Students also got the chance to spend the day in the Sixth Form Centre.
Students attended a talk which highlighted some of the opportunities open to students, and also spent time in the Sixth Form Common Room and Sixth Form Café.
Headteacher Frances Howarth said: “Students enjoyed the opportunity to gain an insight into Sixth Form life and it gave many of them the chance to really think about what subjects they might study.
“Whilst some realised that certain subjects might not be the right choice at Sixth Form, others realised subjects they had not previously considered would be a good choice.
“It really gave the students the opportunity to decide whether certain subjects would be the right options.”
