On Thursday 25th November Etone Sixth Form opened their doors for the first post pandemic Sixth Form Open Evening. Despite the cool temperature we were thrilled to welcome a record breaking attendance to our new market place style format.
With ever growing numbers in the Sixth Form and a new suite of subjects including; Accounting, Economics, Computer Science, Uniformed Public Services and Forensic Science it was wonderful to see so many prospective students in attendance.
The new format allowed for teachers to make clear links with each other and in discussions with our guests consider what their next steps might include and which subjects would complement each other. There were also opportunities to see what each subject had to offer with taste testing in Business, a model skeleton in Sport and attractive displays all around.
It was wonderful to see all of our current Etone year 11 pupils attending with their families as they look to continue their journey at Etone through to apprenticeships, universities and beyond. Two of our prefects commented on the atmosphere of the night with one stating “I can’t wait to come to Etone. The teachers really care about the students and are the experts. It is exactly where I want to study for my A Levels.” And the other focusing on the feel of the evening “The buzz around the place is amazing. It is clear that we are popular and I can’t wait to study Criminology.”
