Normally, in July, the College welcomes thousands of pupils in Year 10 from our partner schools to a range of taster sessions, to gain a flavour of advanced level study. Sadly, due to the current pandemic situation, this is not possible this July. Instead, through Your HNC @ Home, Year 10 pupils can experience a range Year 10 Taster activities, online, to help them to get ahead in planning and making decisions about their next steps.
Advanced Level teachers at the College have carefully selected the range of activities to give a genuine flavour of studying their subjects at A Level. Pupils will also be able to discover more about the outstanding support for young people at the College, as well as be able to explore the variety of enrichment and extra curricular activities on offer, to help them to stand out from the crowd. They will also be able to view an extensive photo gallery of our award winning College.
Angela Williams OBE, Principal commented: "We know that our Year 10 taster sessions are an important part of helping pupils to get ahead and start thinking about the big decision they will have to make in Year 11 about their next steps after school, and we are very sorry that the current pandemic means we are unable to host these. We hope our replacement, Your HNC @ Home especially for Year 10, will provide some compensation, and that pupils in Year 10 enjoy engaging with the online taster activities that our staff have designed especially for them. And we very much hope to see them in person, at a future open event, when it is safe for us to host such events."
Year 10 pupils will be able to access Your HNC @ Home and the newly designed Year 10 taster activities from Wednesday 1st July.
