Form IV have had a very enjoyable week in the Fourth into Sixth Programme which has included an overnight stay in Wyatt House, the Sixth Form boarding house and learning and relaxing in our new Cadogan Sixth Form Centre. In the Sixth Form kitchens girls cooked a two-course supper for their Tutors, Heads of House and Head of Year.
Students also had the opportunity to try new subjects offered at A Level as taster lessons including Economics, Politics and Psychology. In addition, they spent a morning trying out a variety of cross curricular subjects ranging from Forensic Science investigating blood splatters and bullet trajectories to an expert led Drama and Classics workshop. Across other subjects students have experienced escape rooms in English, marketing strategies in Business and using language skills to cook in French and converse with native Spanish speakers. In addition, they have tried their hand at more formal cooking in the Leiths School of Food and Wine building making pasta.
On Wednesday, students went to Wokingham Waterside Centre for an afternoon of team building along with a friendly dragon boat racing competition between the Houses. They had the opportunity to try paddleboarding and a katacanoe, with six in a boat rowing cooperatively.
The programme also has a strong university focus, and the students enjoyed an informative and interactive talk with Mr Jon Cheek of Unidays which was both useful and thought-provoking. The students also produced presentations on one of three topic areas, university, apprenticeships, or gap years. These are on display in the Cadogan Sixth Form Centre for all students to view.
