Year 12 and 13 pupils have embarked upon their Sixth Form Enrichment programme: a series of university and futures focused events and activities with Exeter University.
The sessions have given students a valuable insight into applying to university and choosing a course, how to apply to a competitive course and how to write an effective personal statement. They have also dispelled myths around applications to Russell Group and competitive universities aiding pupils in considering their choices more widely.
Embley’s Director of Sixth Form, Rebecca Thomas-Snell, will continue to work closely with each student to ensure that their applications offer the truest reflection of their talents and abilities.
After the event Head Boy Sam commented: “Embley’s universities and careers programme helps us all to make choices that are right for us. The sessions from Exeter have been invaluable in helping us all to make important decisions about our futures.”
On Thursday 8th October Embley will be holding a virtual Sixth Form Open Event. This will be an opportunity to find out about A Levels at Embley and meet the Director of Sixth Form, current students and members of the Leadership Team.
Embley Head Girl Clara is looking forward to welcoming students to the event: “Sixth Form at Embley is a friendly and welcoming place to be and will give you the perfect experience to prepare you for your future life. For many people A Levels can be a stressful and demanding time. But with the pastoral help that Embley offers, every individual both in and outside the classroom receive a huge amount of support to help make sure that everyone reaches their potential – the staff at Embley always look for the best interests and opportunities for everyone and are always available for a chat or any questions.”
