Students in year 11 had the opportunity to become sixth formers for the day on Tuesday 22nd November, as they took part in Post 16 transition day. Many students used this as an option to try out brand new subjects that they will not have experienced before, for example, learning about cultural stereotypes in Sociology, how loans works in Finances Studies, and what makes people become violent in Psychology.
Year 12 and 13 Business and Economic students had the privilege of a special guest speaker on the 23rd June, when Amrit Judge, Associate Professor of Finance in the Business School at Nottingham University, visited the college. Amrit spoke about his experience in the world of Finance so far, touching on the impact of the Brexit vote and how the markets reacted to the shock news.
On Friday 18 November, will be holding a charity fundraising event for Children In Need. Students will be able to attend College in non-school uniform for a suggested donation of £1. The £1 donation for non-uniform will be collected at the gate, weather permitting, or during tutor time or assembly.
