AKS Sixth Form Taster Day

Friday 31st January 2020 - experience life in Sixth Form!

The Sixth Form Taster Day will be held on Friday 31st January 2020. It will provide all Year 11 students with an opportunity to experience the A-Level and BTEC courses available at AKS Sixth Form. Their usual GCSE timetable will be suspended for the day, and we recommend students choose at least four academic subjects to explore from the following list, though there is capacity for students to take part in six sessions should they wish.

Alongside their exposure to the academic life at AKS Sixth Form, students will gain a taste of what it is like to be an AKS Sixth Form student. They will have refreshments in the Sixth Form Common Room at break and access at lunchtime. Furthermore, they will have the opportunity to take part in a number of enrichment sessions run by Sixth Form Enrichment staff and Sixth Form students. These include exploring the Russell Group universities; understanding what it takes to complete a successful application for a place at university or on a degree apprenticeship and what it means to be in AKS Sixth Form.
