Sixth Form Open Evening Report

On Thursday 9 November, over 250 prospective students and parents visited The Misbourne for an informative talk about joining the Sixth Form and the opportunity to tour the school and visit subject areas.

Headteacher, Robert Preston outlined the outstanding prospects for students on graduating from the Sixth Form: “All our students achieve at least the minimum qualifications for university and are in a very strong position to proceed to the next stage in their life.  Some go straight into employment or apprenticeships confident that coming from The Misbourne they have all the skills including leadership skills to really make a difference to our country in the future”. 

Head of Sixth Form, David Dwight spoke about the enrichment opportunities offered in the Sixth Form: “We offer our students an impressive array of optional enrichment courses, including the Extended Project Qualification, which help students toward their goals and to stand out from the crowd”.

Ashley Smith from our partner Football Academy, spoke about this new full time course offering student athletes the opportunity to continue their academic studies whilst developing their football and coaching pathways in a professional and elite environment.

Head Boy, Matthew Debono said that “The teaching here is great, but to be successful independence and a strong work ethic are essential. The teachers help us develop both of these skills, but there is always alongside lots of support and encouragement.  This allows for a friendly working environment but also an adult-like relationship between staff members and students.”

Year 12 student Kelsie Wright said that “I am extremely happy at The Misbourne, and I am glad I stayed here to do my A-Levels.  I enjoy every day and with brilliant support from teachers,  I have had a strong start to my subject courses.  The extensive support from every subject is amazing, whether that be through feedback on an essay in English, or a piece of artwork, or taking their time outside of lessons to help you develop a better understanding of an area you struggle with. I cannot recommend The Misbourne enough”.
