In July we have a 2 day Induction Programme for our up and coming Year 12s.
On Friday 8th we have a ‘getting to know you’ day where applicants have the opportunity to meet Sixth Form tutors, the Sixth Form management team, some Senior Students and other members of the new Year 12. The programme includes tours of the House and grounds, a walk in the country park, afternoon tea with cake followed by activities in the grounds. The inflatable obstacle course does tend to excite most of the students, and teachers, the most.
Then on Monday 13th July they have induction lessons in each of their subjects, giving them an opportunity to meet with subject teachers who introduce their courses and give them summer reading and transition work to ensure a confident start to their life in the sixth form in September.
