Prospective Sixth Form students could tour the facilities at Roding Valley High School at its recent Sixth Form open evening.
The evening was open to Year 11 and prospective students from other schools. Visitors could tour the Sixth Form Centre – in the new Brook Building – and talk to the school’s experienced subject staff about their future choices.
Anjuli Wheaton, Assistant Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form, said: “We also had most of our current sixth formers on hand to offer advice to new students and answer questions on what life in the Sixth Form is like.
“Students also had the opportunity to find out about our enrichment offer, including EPQ, Core Maths and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.”
She added: “I am really looking forward to working with this talented and aspirational cohort.”
Headteacher Sharon Jenner said: “It was fantastic to welcome hundreds of potential students, both internal and external, to our Open Evening.
“Our current Year 12 and 13 students were superb ambassadors for their academic A-Level subjects, also speaking highly of the extensive enrichment and career opportunities offered to them at Roding Valley High School.
“The Sixth Form continues to move from strength to strength, building on the school’s much improved and now significantly above national GCSE results.
“Each year we have supported our most able A-Level students to secure places at either top universities, including Oxbridge, or higher level apprenticeships.
“The success of the evening was testament to our growing reputation as an excellent academic but supportive sixth form provision serving the Loughton community.”
Students are invited to make applications via the school’s website. The deadline for applications is Monday 20th January 2020.
The school will start interviewing candidates throughout the Spring Term. Please click on this link to view the photos from the event
