Holocaust Educational Trust
Simon and Sophie from Year 12 are taking part in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s “Lessons from Auschwitz” programme and were up way before dawn to visit a chilly Auschwitz this week. They were overwhelmed by what they saw and felt there. We will be hearing more from them as they lead assemblies over the coming term.

Year 12 university open days and work experience
Year 12 students should be thinking about booking their university open days now.There is a great website, which is a directory of all the open days which makes it easier to plan. Many universities’ open days are held at the weekend but should you need to attend in term time and will be away from school, please can parents let the Sixth Form Office know in good time. Up to 3 days absence from school may be allowed.
Year 12 students should also be thinking about planning to do some relevant work experience during the summer holidays and should be looking for places now. Employers are always looking to recruit people who already have work experience.  Half the employers on a survey of major graduate recruiters said that students with no work experience have "little or no chance" of receiving a job offer. Gaining work experience during the summer this year could prove to be very valuable to you in the future. It is evidence of genuine interest in a career sector which impresses university admissions tutors and apprenticeship providers.
