On Wednesday 23rd June we held our first ever ‘virtual online’ Higher Education Evening. We were still fortunate enough to be able to have our guest speakers in school transmitting live. Mr Alexander spoke first and introduced the EPQ, Extended Project Qualification, which students can apply to complete during the next year. This was followed by a presentation from Mrs Osborne on Careers and applying for Apprenticeships. Then followed a presentation from Aemilia from The University of Suffolk regarding the process of applying to University and the financial implications. Our highlight of the evening was hearing our wonderful ex students, Fran Perkins-Taylor, AJ Sims, Gemma Deacon and Jacob Miculob, speaking about their experiences of studying at University. The final talk of the evening was from Mrs Perkins-Teacher, giving her account as a parent of sending her daughter to University. Students requiring support with their UCAS application should make an appointment to see Dr Talbot. For Career or apprenticeship advice please see Mrs Osborne in the Careers department.

Thank you to all parents and students who sent us very complimentary reviews of this event.
