A taste of independent study was on offer when Year 11 students at Rossett School took part in a Sixth Form taster day.
The 15 and 16-year-olds spent the day experiencing the next step in their academic careers.
As well as the state-of-the-art technology and separate study and tuition areas in the new Sixth Form Centre, the students were offered advice on choosing subjects and qualifications. Dressed smartly, following the ‘office-dress’ code, they also had the opportunity to sample the cuisine at the new café.
Brendan Foley, Rossett’s Director of Sixth Form, said: The taster day gave the students a chance to discover all the exciting, new opportunities that sixth form at Rossett has to offer.
We really want them to feel confident about the next step in their education and this event provided a useful insight for them into life as a sixth former.
The students attended four lessons, which were selected from a range of 30 established subjects.
Year 11 student Emily Reece said: The Sixth Form taster day definitely confirmed that I want to study at Rossett after my GCSEs.
I’m really looking forward to the challenge of independent study and making use of the excellent facilities and teaching on offer in the Sixth Form here.
