“This week has been so helpful … I feel part of the Sixth Form already and am really looking forward to September.” Jonathan Shea
A smooth and effective induction into Sixth Form life will enable you to achieve or exceed your goals. All applicants to Hillview Sixth Form attend our Induction week in June/July in order to be fully prepared to make a confident start in the sixth form in the autumn term.
During the Induction week, you will experience taster classes in all of your potential subject choices. Experiencing these subjects first-hand is vital in order to ensure that you have made the right choices. You will also have the opportunity to drop in and observe other Sixth Form lessons to give a very realistic picture of what learning is like at Level 3.
Learning in the Sixth Form is very demanding, so you will also take part in interactive skill development workshops during the Induction Week to support you in making the transition from study at Key Stage 4. These sessions include Independent Learning, Research Skills, Time Management and Self-management and are all vital in ensuring that all students are fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
External applicants to Sixth Form also take part in a welcome day prior to the Induction week which gives them the opportunity to get to know the Hillview environment, other external students and the Sixth Form team.
