Students have the opportunity to attend some amazing trips whilst at the Trinity Sixth Form here at St Thomas More, one of which has included trips to New York. Students get to experience the big city and visit all the famous landmarks. As well as making lifelong friendships, these experiences stay with students for a life time. We can’t wait for the next trip!
All year 12 students attended the annual Liverpool Higher Education Exhibition. There was a vast array of exhibitors from Universities and careers across the country to help students consider what they would like to do following their time at Sixth Form. Students were very inquisitive visiting stalls and asking insightful questions about courses. Some students elected to attend subject seminars as well as seminars on exploring post 18 options, student life and finance. Following the UCAS fair students explored the city of Liverpool including visiting Liverpool Docks, The Beatles museum and The Museum of Liverpool whilst others enjoyed shopping and eating in the city.
Sixth Form Honours Programme students culminated their year with a residential to Cambridge University. Students participated in interactive lectures, talks and team building at Sidney Sussex College as well as exploring the campus and city. Hassan Hashmi’s cited his highlight as the physics lecture that he attended. Other students’ couldn’t identify only one highlight of the residential as they enjoyed the overall experience of attending such a prestigious university. This has had a positive impact on their university choices for next year. Their university applications are now well under way and they look forward to turning their aspirations into a reality.
Roshni was shortlisted for a national award after Virgin Trains were impressed with her first-class skills on an internship. The 18-year-old completed the four-week placement at Crewe rail station as part of a prestigious programme with education charity Career Ready. She was tasked with assisting disabled train passengers on the platforms and also helped at an information kiosk.
Roshni did so well that she has now gone on to land part-time work at the station. Roshni is one of 14 students from the sixth form to ‘graduate’ from the careers programme this month. They have all completed a year-long, intensive series of activities to help prepare them for work.
As well as completing an internship or work placement, each student has had a business mentor, gone on visits to a variety of companies, and attended master classes.
Congratulations to our 11 Career Ready graduates who celebrated the successful completion of the Career Ready programme. The programme culminated with a graduation ceremony after a year of masterclasses, mentoring sessions, industry visits and internships. We were joined by representatives from Career Ready, mentors and guests from business and industry. Our guest speaker Keith Nicholl from KMF Precision Sheet Metal Limited and our MC for the evening Gary Curzon from Mettler Toledo Safeline spoke highly of the way our students had engaged with the programme and the progress they had made in becoming more work ready. The students themselves talked about the growth in confidence and self belief that was evident to see. All students took part in a presentation ceremony with individual awards for progress and engagement. It was a wonderful evening to celebrate and recognise the hard work and success of our students.
