More than 500 people attended a Sixth Form Open Evening at Debden Park High School.
Visitors could tour the dedicated Sixth Form building, The Hive, and find out about the range of A-Level courses on offer.
There were activities which enabled Year 11 students to observe and ask questions about the various contents taught at Key Stage 5.
In addition, expert advisers from the world of Higher Education and apprenticeships were on hand to help students develop their vision for the future.
Prospective students enjoyed quizzes on Sociology, witnessed the dissection of a rat, and watched talented Art students working on their canvasses.
Director of Sixth Form Hayley Martin-Burns spoke to visitors about the school's vision for sixth form.
She said: :“A-Level success is not something that exists in our genes; it's a skill our teaching team works with students to nurture and develop.
“Our first set of A-Level results pay tribute to our students and to the teachers that help them to make a successful transition from GCSE to A-Level learning.”
