This is the latest in a series of initiatives put on by the school’s dedicated staff designed to give each Sixth Form pupil making the first steps towards the next stage of their education the best possible knowledge and understanding ahead of the application process during what is sure to be a busy final school year for the group.

Head of Sixth Form Peter Lavery, said: “This event is one of the best ways to get a broader understanding of what is to come for each of our University applicants in the coming months, and the exhibition was another very worthwhile experience for the group that will stand them in good stead going forward.
