Guest Speaker – Alison Wilson, Winchester University
Alison Wilson of Winchester University came to talk to Year 12 students about how an excellent personal statement can make a student’s UCAS application really stand out and differentiate them. This is often the only opportunity to make a good impression on Admissions tutors who are looking for maturity, ability, commitment and knowledge. Personal statements help tutors make decisions on offers, especially for competitive courses. They should show a genuine interest in the subject, contain evidence of academic ability and reveal qualities and skills that make students suitable for their chosen course as well as reflecting their interests, abilities and personality. It is recommended that 70% of the statement should focus on academic achievements and 30% should be information about the student and their skill set for their chosen degree. Year 12 will be writing the first draft of their personal statements in the summer term.
The school day for Sixth Form begins at 8.45am with registration and finishes at 3.25pm at the earliest. Between these times, all students are expected to be in school, irrespective of when they have lessons, unless we have received a call or email from a parent or guardian. Year 13 only have 12 weeks of teaching and learning left before they go on study leave from Friday 8 May. They should ensure they are making the most of every minute of every day in school to target the grades they need.
Sixth Form mock week
Sixth Form mock exams for both Year 12 and Year 13 will take place the week commencing Monday 24 February, straight after the half term holiday. Art and textile mock exams are taking place next week from Wednesday 22 to Friday 24 January.
