A-Level Taster Day
Our first A-Level Taster Day was held on Thursday 17th January 2019 from 9:30-3pm
The Taster day was planned for our 2019/20 A-Level applicants so that they could gain a hands experience of our amazing college, what is to be part of #TeamHaringey6, and of course what our A-Level courses offer is like. Over 80 students from Haringey and surrounding boroughs attended.
The students sampled 3 A-Level subjects that they would like to study at College these ran throughout the day. They also were able to interact with our current college students. The day started with a motivational presentation from the Principal and then straight into the morning sessions. At this point the students were really starting to feel at home with us and were full of smiles, sounds of laughter and increasing confidence when walking around. We provided a free lunch and some enrichment activities for the students during their break, then it was straight back into their final session. After a concluding address, the students were full of questions and hungry to know the next steps. Many completed their applications.
Russ Lawrance, Principal said: “It was amazing to meet so many students that are so focused on their future and really can’t wait to start with us in September. To give them the #H6Experience at this point in the year before the stresses of mock and upcoming GCSE’s I believe to be invaluable.”
One of our new students that attended said “I was fortunate to attend your taster day and wanted to thank you very much for the warm welcome and the kind and helpful staff. All the lessons were fantastic. And the food was marvellous. I also want to thank the Principal for his encouraging speech. Thank you for having me!”
New friendships were made, everyone felt part of #TeamHaringey6 Relationships formed that will continue to grow throughout the year, through the other activities that will all enhance the #H6Experience – impact of the day was happy, self-assured students who are ready to start College in September. An excellent day.
