Head Girl

I’ve just finished my first year at Accord Sixth Form and I have already started to reap the rewards.

 

When evaluating further educational providers, it is very challenging for any student to make the right decision. However, Accord Sixth Form was clearly the right choice for me. The first and ultimately most important factor I considered, was the quality of teaching and results. It is clear that over time Accord Sixth Form has continually achieved excellent results within both A-Level and Vocational provision.

Another essential factor that I considered was the high level of support and guidance on offer. Within my first year as a student at Accord Sixth Form, I have had access to a designated careers advisor and a personal tutor who are always available to support my progression both academically and personally.

The wide variety of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities on offer have allowed me to develop into an independent well-rounded student. As Head Girl I have led on developing student voice, charity work and assisting younger students through peer mentoring schemes. Likewise Accord Sixth Form provides external opportunities which can be accessed. These include voluntary placements and trips to Universities, helping me develop new and existing skills.

Accord Sixth Form also has outstanding facilities, the recently developed Post 16 common room and Independent Learning Centre offer me access to a wide range of resources and IT facilities, alongside a quiet place to study. During my down time, I also have access to a wide range of leisure facilities, such as a newly refurbed fitness suite.

My first year at Accord Sixth Form has exceeded my expectations, not only am I excelling academically, I have developed a wide range of new skills and made many new friends. The dedication of teaching staff and the Post 16 team have helped me develop my knowledge and understanding ready to begin my applications to University.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Accord Sixth Form College, I can truly say that you will be made to feel part of a community where you are given the opportunity to thrive on both an academic and personal level.
