Haverstock Sixth Form Open Evening: Welcoming All Camden & Islington Families.Posted on: 22nd Nov 2019
A Taste Of Haverstock Sixth Form.
Last Wednesday we hosted our annual Sixth Form Open Evening and from the moment the doors opened, the building was buzzing with our best ever turnout of Year 11 students and families.
This is the first public Sixth Form Open Evening we've hosted in recent years (previous ones were open only to current Haverstock students). So we were particularly pleased to see that this year our Sixth Form has generated a lot of interest from a wider network of Camden and Islington students looking for Sixth Form places. Over 25% of visitors came from other Camden and Islington schools, in addition to a fantastic turnout from our own students and families!
The lively evening included subject-themed stalls, talks by subject leaders, tours of our new Sixth Form centre, the opportunity to ask questions of Sixth Formers and staff, and more.
The Sixth Form Open Evening was part of our first ever Haverstock Sixth Form Week. This week–long event was designed to give all our Year 11 students a taste of real life in Sixth Form, and every day included new Sixth Form–related activities and events. Whether it was experiencing the different style of teaching, gathering information on career paths, or just meeting our current crop of Sixth Formers, our students enjoyed the first ever Sixth Form Week.
Read on to see what our Year 11 students thought about the week below, and scroll down for more photos.
Applications are now open until 6 January 2020. We hope to see you again soon.
