Induction day, but not as we know it!
Today should have been our induction morning for students entering our Sixth Form in September. In common with many such events, we were unable to welcome either our current Year 11 pupils, or those joining us from other schools, to meet their teachers for next year and sample some A-level lessons.
Instead, all the students were invited to a virtual induction event where they were able to see introductory videos from their teachers and heads of year and watch a live YouTube presentation which answered questions the students had emailed in.
This was not just a 'meet and greet' morning, as teachers had also prepared some summer projects for their students so that they will be primed and ready to start their A-level courses when they arrive in September.
"We hope that the students found this morning helpful and we look forward to seeing them all after the summer, " commented Richard Porter, Head of Sixth Form. "And with their projects completed and ready to hand in!"
The videos and summer tasks can be viewed here.
