Kingsthorpe College Post 16 students were celebrating success this morning as they achieved notable results for academic and vocational courses, building upon the excellent results of previous years. The College is particularly pleased with the vast majority of students (75%) securing their first choice university places - a just reward for two years of hard work.
We have had a fantastic two days of induction for our new Post 16 students recently, with 100 formerly year 11 students from KC and a number of brand new students joining us for a series of taster sessions. We had an external speaker in who spoke about new ways of learning and creativity, and finished off the day with a BBQ in the glorious sunshine. We look forward to seeing everyone back for results day - and in the meantime all transition work can be found in the Post 16 area of the KC website.
As part of their extra curricula activities students have been taking part in Young Enterprise Company programme which enables participants to experience what it’s like to set up and run a student company. Running throughout one academic year, students make all the decisions about their enterprise, from deciding on the name and product to creating a business plan, managing the student company finances and selling to the public at trade fairs.
