Year 11 Taster Days

Over the last few weeks there have been a number of taster days that our new year 11 students have attended...


 The events have not only been great fun, but have also been informative.. The visits allow students to not only get a taste of various lessons helping them to gauge if they would like to study in this area but also to help establish if that centre is right for them!

As all students now have to stay on in education until their 18th birthday due to raising the participation age in the UK, these visits are vital for our students to get a real picture of the different post-16 FE centres and so see what facilities they have to offer, what courses they run and if they can see themselves there for the following 2/3 years.

With more taster days lined up for September at the likes of Newcastle college.... We hope our year 11's are becoming more confident in making their choice for which post 16 FE centre is best for them...
