This week in sixth form...
Oxford University Success
Abbie Robinson (English Literature) and Jeremy Tai (Psychology) have both been offered a place at Oxford University. This is a fantastic achievement which involved an intensive application process. We now wish them the very best of luck in securing their grades in their summer exams.
Mental health and wellbeing
As part of our efforts to support students with their mental health and wellbeing, our next Discovery Day is offering them a range of activities designed to help them de-stress. There will be opportunities to let off some steam with Boxercise, prepare and eat Sushi, be creative with art and textiles, take a gentle walk around Attenborough, and indulge in Aromatherapy. We hope it will also help them consider how they can make use of time away from the classroom to manage and self-regulate their mood, especially during times of stress and anxiety.
Students are making greater use of the space at Lakeview to engage in collaborative learning during their study periods. This is hugely encouraging as research shows that such an approach has real impact on improving knowledge and understanding.
