Year 12 students recently spent the day learning about business and enterprise, taking part in a series of workshops run by the company Young Enterprise. Students worked in teams to consider what are the key qualities that make companies thrive, and what skills are required by prospective employers - and how they can ensure they have them! Part of the day included students giving a presentation in small groups to the entire year group – something many students were slightly nervous about doing!
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.
