Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice
The Sixth Form has had close links with Alexander Devine for a number of years. The charity began in 2007, named after an 8 year old Windsor boy who passed away from a brain tumour. The charity raised funds to build the hospice in Windsor in 2015. As well as helping them by collecting new or pre loved (in very good condition) books and toys next week, there are other ways to help too. There will be a Santa dash through Windsor on Sunday 25 November. Mrs Rogers will be completing this and would welcome any students who wish to run too. Students can also help by sponsoring any of the runners. The hospice is always looking for volunteers. If any student would like to help with cleaning, gardening, some admin or helping with the care team, please do see Mrs Rogers who can put you in touch with them.
Y12 Careers Resources Evening
On Thursday evening, Mrs Rogers spoke to a group of Year 12 parents about the careers resources that students will be introduced to next term. The power combination of UCAS and apprenticeships was explored. There are many resources available on the Parents section of the school website under Careers Advice, Post-18 options. These include information on apprenticeships, and many sites on careers such as HEAP, SACU, eCLIPS and Kudos .
Visiting Speaker - Alison Wilson from Winchester University
On Tuesday, Alison Wilson from Winchester University came to give advice to Y12 students about how to select a university and subject. When choosing a subject, students should consider if they have a career in mind and which subjects they are good at or interested in.
They were shown the UCAS website which is full of information about how to choose a course, which universities run those courses and what the grade requirements are. Students were advised to always choose the course first, then research universities, thinking about whether they would prefer a campus or city university, the distance from home, whether accommodation is on or off campus and the sports social facilities available. We are looking forward to Alison returning to speak to Sixth Form in January to talk about writing personal statements.
