With open evening season underway, it’s important that Year 11 students look around at what’s on offer to enable them to make the right choices.
College and sixth form open evenings are an ideal opportunity to find out more, understand the options and start to make plans for the transition process.
Our students are strongly encouraged to attend the events relevant to them and we provide plenty of guidance on who to talk to and the kinds of questions to ask.
