Year 11 Speed Dating
14th February 2014 | Rickmansworth School |

As part of our endeavour to ensure that all our students are well equipped to make informed decisions about their options all the way through their school career and beyond, on 7 February we held our Year 11 Information Morning.

This event was held in addition to the Autumn Term KS4-5 6th Form Options evening and gave students the opportunity to speak directly to current 6th Form students, and find out ‘from the horses mouth’ the reality of studying each A Level subject. In true speed dating style a bell was rung every 10 minutes and students moved on to another subject table! We also had representatives from all 3 local colleges West Herts, Amersham and Oaklands, together with our Youth Connexions and an apprenticeship provider, so that all available options beyond Year 11 were available. The Hall was buzzing all morning and the students really appreciated this further opportunity to answer any questions they had before making the big decisions as to what to study after GCSEs.

Comments from the students included: “It was great getting an insiders view from actual students who were very helpful and honest”; “This session really helped to confirm my A Level choices” ; “Helped me understand the differences between GCSE and A Levels”. Thanks to all the 6th formers and colleges who made this event possible.
