'A Day in the Life of a Sixth Form Student' day
Year 11 students at Debden Park High School spent 'A Day In The Life of a Sixth Form Student' on Thursday.
Dressed in their smart business attire, the students followed a specially-created timetable of A-Level taster lessons to give them a taste of what life will be like when they join the Sixth Form in September.
Each lesson was designed to inform and inspire students, leaving them with an understanding of what each course involves and what lies ahead.
The day focused on students’ futures, moving on to the challenge of A-Levels and deciding on a pathway to their future.
The day was enjoyed by staff and students alike. Students were inspired, knowledge was gained and new friendships were formed.
The vast majority of Year 11 students applied for a place at the school's Sixth Form.
They will be the second cohort of A-Level students through the doors of the Sixth Form which opened last September.
Director of Sixth Form Sharon Palmer said: "It was such a amazing day, seeing all of our Year 11 students so engaged in their lessons and so enthusiastic about the next step in the academic career.
"Our Year 12 students also had a fantastic day raising their aspirations and building the futures they are working so hard towards."
