Fyling Hall School’s enhanced Sixth Form offering is taking shape. July saw the appointment of Jane Mitchell as the Head of Sixth Form. This week saw the announcement of the Sixth Form’s initial enrichment trip. With more in the pipeline, it is sure to be an exciting year.
Ms Mitchell extended role was announced in early July. Building on the tailored programme rolled out in February 2019, she will ensure that each child’s experience in the Sixth Form is enriching, engaging and useful. Ms Mitchell will also discuss future plans with each student. She will help them with their UCAS applications, apprenticeships, further education or support them in deciding their next steps beyond school.
To start this new and exciting phase at Fyling Hall and to create a cooperative and positive ethos Ms Mitchell will takes the Sixth Form away on a “team building” exercise. Taking place on 5th & 6th September pupils will stay overnight in York. The two days will start with a visit to the Help for Heroes Recovery Centre at Catterick.
They will then travel to York for two team building activity sessions as well as a visit to the escape rooms. Designed to encourage the Sixth Form to act as the leading body of Fyling Hall, these two days are the beginning of our active support in their thinking and acting as a team rather than a group of individuals.
With more planned for the rest of the year. . . indeed, more in which the students themselves can input . . . we remain confident that Fyling Hall is the appropriate choice for Sixth Form education. With GCSE results out tomorrow, it is not too late to join us for this coming term!
