Highfields to host Sixth Form Open Evening

Highfields is inviting prospective students to an Open Evening to get a glimpse of what our Sixth Form has to offer.

The Sixth Form Open Evening will take place from 5.30pm-8pm on 17th November.

Visitors will get the chance to speak to current Sixth Form students and tutors, whilst taking a tour of Highfields’ facilities.

Kevin Blower, Head of Sixth Form, said: “Making your decision about Post 16 education is very important.

“We are always delighted that so many of our students choose to stay on to study at our Sixth Form and we are hosting this Open Evening so they and other students can get a feel of what we have to offer.

“Highfields Sixth Form is exciting and challenging and we have a reputation for providing high quality teaching and learning. Our ethos is about having high expectations within a supportive and friendly environment.

“We believe that every student can excel on courses that are appropriate to them and this is reflected in the extensive range of A-level and BTEC courses we offer.

“We look forward to welcoming prospective students, along with their parents or carers, to our Open Evening so they can get a flavour of our Sixth Form and consider it as an option for their Post 16 education.”

During their last visit, Ofsted inspectors praised Highfields’ Sixth Form, commenting on students’ good progress, the quality of teaching and strong curriculum which ensures that ‘students’ progression to internationally-renowned universities or high quality work based training is possible’.

Year 13 student and Highfields’ Head Boy, Owen Stavenuiter, said: “From my experience, the Sixth Form at Highfields provides engaging lessons, a high standard of teaching and the push needed to succeed. Students are incredibly driven and hardworking, but there is also a really friendly and supportive atmosphere within this fantastic modern learning environment.”

Fellow Sixth Form student Molly Jervis, who is a member of Highfields’ Head Team, added: “I believe that Highfields Sixth Form is a diverse and encouraging place, where I feel I am always well guided and encouraged to achieve my full potential. 

“Highfields has thoroughly prepared me for my future by ensuring I have always had the correct support in place, and I always know where to turn if I need any help.”
