On Wednesday 28th June we were thrilled to welcome our prospective Year 12 students to Sixth Form for our Taster Day. In recent years Etone College has enjoyed many successes out of our Sixth Form provision including a record number of applications, continued strong results, prestigious destinations. Most recently we have celebrated with our Football Education Academy as they have succeeded in winning the WBA Challenge Cup for a second year in the row.
As the day began, we were greeted with the excited faces of our outgoing Year 11 pupils who are eager to rejoin us in September along with some new faces from pupils joining us around the Nuneaton area. Each student received their individual welcome pack including their very special limited edition Etone pen and their individual timetable for the day. Following the gifting Miss Churchard, Head of Sixth Form welcomed our students for the day and delivered some key messages about the fantastic opportunities the next two years will hold for them.
With that our pupils then got the chance to explore life at Post 16 with some truly inspiring taster sessions such as developing an understanding of the psyche of a serial killer, taste testing best loved brands against supermarkets own and constructing code in Computer Science. Whatever subjects our pupils selected for their options they were extremely enthusiastic about the experiences of the day and now anticipated results day with a yearning to arrive at Sixth Form ready to start Year 12. With just the Year 11 Prom left to go we can’t wait to see you all in the new year!
