A PRESTIGIOUS Cumbrian school is inviting prospective sixth form students and their families to come and see what they have to offer.

Trinity School’s Year 11 Progression and Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on Wednesday, November 13, in the Sixth Form Centre’s Carliol Building, from 4:30pm - 7:00pm.

Trinity Sixth Form Centre offers a diverse range of 21 A Levels and 9 Vocational qualifications, with plenty of extra-curricular opportunities for pupils to discover the best of themselves.

Visitors will have the chance to look around the Sixth Form Centre and speak to subject teachers, and current Sixth Form students, in their own classrooms.

Senior Staff will also be available to discuss subject choices, and check entry requirements, with potential students who are unsure about what courses they want to follow. The school’s Careers Officer will also be available in the Sixth Form Bistro throughout the evening.

There will be representatives from eight universities attending the event, and support and advice will be available from the Sixth Form pastoral team, who will be happy to answer any questions.

Assistant Headteacher – Sixth Form, Andrew Winter, says: “Trinity Sixth Form Centre offers great opportunities, and excellent facilities, for students who are looking to continue onto further education, apprenticeships, or employment, and we would encourage Year 11 students, and their parents, to come and see what we have to offer. 

“As well as students from our own school, we always welcome applications from students at other schools in the region. We also have a number of national and international students with us, which all adds to the eclectic mix of our student body.”

Trinity also encourages students to think about their future beyond 6th form by arranging visits to University Fairs, where they can tour the buildings, see the accommodation, and sit in on lectures.

The school recognises that higher education is not the route for every 6th form student, and addresses the increasing popularity of apprenticeships by inviting in guest speakers from local industry. 

In Year 12, pupils spend a week in work experience placements to give them a taste of real working life.

Outside of mainstream schooling, the Trinity has a thriving and active extra-curricular programme that includes the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, Drama and Musical productions, trips to London and Europe, and World Challenge trips that have taken students to Vietnam, and Southern India, and will be taking the challenge to Northern India in 2020.

Current Year 11 students considering their next step in education are advised to come and see what Trinity Sixth Form Centre can offer them.

Mr Winter will be presenting two introductory talks at 4.45pm and 5.30pm, in the Devonshire Hall, with the rest of the evening dedicated to allowing visitors to tour the Sixth Form facilities.
