A number of our students have secured their work experience, which will prove invaluable as part of future applications. PLEASE make this a priority if this has not been arranged yet. Applications for apprenticeships and employment are also underway for those students who are intending to leave at the end of this year. We continue to work with a range of providers to support this process, including Pearson, Catch 22, Rolls Royce, Boots and the Universities of Nottingham and Derby.
In PHSE we are in the middle of the process of introducing higher education and careers related opportunities and will spend essential time on this in June and July. Thinking about appropriate courses in higher education or within industry requires a great deal of research and preparation, so we hope that our students will embrace the opportunities that we provide and also use their own initiative.
We will not be having a formal study leave period in year 12 and expect students to attend all scheduled lessons, unless they have an afternoon exam, in which case the morning can be used to revise.
Just a reminder that August 18th is results day and it is strongly advised that students come in to collect results and consult with staff where necessary. We hope that this will be a very happy and successful day and that all of our students will be able to embark upon their first choice of future pathway, within or beyond Friesland.
