When Ofsted visited the Sixth Form in May 2013, they found that every single lesson they observed was good or outstanding. Our teachers always make sure your lessons are challenging and inspiring and Ofsted said: “Teachers’ skilful use of questioning to draw out students’ understanding, to tackle any misconceptions and challenge their critical and creative thinking skills further.” “Students take an active part in the lesson and as a result develop independence, listening and collaborative skills successfully.” “Teachers’ high expectations and careful use of information about students’ current abilities provide varied activities that challenge everyone, whatever their starting points.”

A big reason students choose South Hunsley is because of our university success rates and the awareness we have of what students need to make sure their applications stand out from the crowd.

Paul Woodford TV and Radio Presenter and Marketing Manager University of Hull graduate South Hunsley leaver 2003 “I found South Hunsley to be very aspirational, with a go anywhere, do anything approach to life. I studied Media Studies, History and English and these subjects have helped me to develop useful skills which I have gone on to use in my career so far and have led to me fulfilling my dream of becoming a broadcaster! After leaving sixth form, I studied English with script writing at the University of Hull, and at this point I started working for car magazines as a freelance writer. When I left university I got a job with a local marketing agency and did further studies in marketing and communications. My marketing career has now led me to take up a position as Marketing Manager at a large local company. Alongside this, I continued my motoring journalism and started to race cars myself. This led me to get a shot at presenting a well-known motorsport series on Sky and, in turn led to me becoming a presenter with Yorkshire Coast Radio and KCFM. It just goes to show – you never know where an opportunity might lead, and you should always follow your dreams. South Hunsley had a big impact on me chasing my ambitions and gave me vital life skills. I can still recall individual pieces of advice and guidance given to me by my teachers in various subjects, and I call on that guidance, even today. At South Hunsley you’re lucky to be surrounded by a lot of very good people, and you can learn a lot from every single one of them.”

Ben Coletta Working Gap Years Psychology and Sport Science undergraduate at Northumbria University South Hunsley leaver 2013 “I have spent the last two years travelling and working abroad before beginning my degree this September. I spent two seasons working in Austria initially as a kitchen assistant and then a chef. I also spent four months travelling solo from the UK to Malaysia over-land taking only trains, ferries and buses. This amazing journey took me over 6,000 miles through 22 countries including Ukraine, Russia, Mongolia and China. I saw first hand the crisis in Ukraine, avoided riots in Istanbul and met some fantastic people from all over the world, who I am still in contact with. Earlier this year I also cycled from the UK to Munich on an exhausting 1000 mile ride taking 16 days. I would have never even contemplated such an undertaking without the huge support and encouragement of staff at South Hunsley and taking part in projects run by the sixth form such as the student leadership team and programmes run by the PE department such as CSLA, HSLA, and opportunities to volunteer on fantastic trips such as Ribblesdale.”

Callum Simpson Creative Designer Northumbria University graduate South Hunsley leaver 2010 “The help and support from the teachers at South Hunsley was second to none and has certainly helped me get where I am today – in my dream job as a Creative Designer! Art was my passion at South Hunsley and I loved getting the chance to work in a proper art studio and exploring the elements of art that really interested me. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and my experiences at South Hunsley helped me to become more confident and independent. After South Hunsley, I went to study at Hull School of Art and Design on a Foundation course, this is considered a pre-requisite for entering some of the top creative universities and art schools around the country. I then went on to Northumbria to study Graphic Design. I specialised in branding whilst studying and interned at a design agency during the summer holidays. After leaving I did more placements before securing a job at StrawberryToo, an agency run by graduates. This was a great chance to learn in a fast-paced environment and one year on, I’ve secured a job at Strawberry as a creative designer. I’m really grateful for my time at South Hunsley. It was because of the support and opportunities in the sixth form I was able to get into my preferred university and I’ve been progressing ever since!”

Sixth Form Programme In line with other Colleges and Sixth Forms nationally most students choosing to study at South Hunsley Sixth Form will choose three A Level / Level 3 equivalents. They will not sit external AS Level examinations as these will not count towards the final A Level grade under the new A Level framework. Students will sit formal mock examinations at the end of Year 12 to allow progress to be measured prior to application being made to University courses. Alongside their A Level choices they will be expected to participate fully in an enrichment curriculum that offers them a chance to build a competitive portfolio for applicants to employment, apprenticeships and University. This could also include the opportunity to study for a fourth subject at AS level. Details of some of our extended curriculum opportunities include:

HE PLUS / EARLY APPLICANTS Each year around 80% of our Year 13 students apply to progress on to Higher Education through UCAS. A number of trips and visits, as well as talks and seminars from our partner institutions throughout Year 12 and Year 13 ensures that students are given the support and information necessary to make a competitive application to a wide-range of courses at universities up and down the country. We are part of HE+, a programme designed for students who are prospective applicants for Oxford or Cambridge universities or for medicine, dentistry or veterinary science courses, or who intend to apply for Russell Group universities. The programme is designed to enable

students to receive specific one-to-one support with their university applications and personal statement and to have access to a range of university and course-related activities. Students will be enrolled on the HE+ programme, which is run by Cambridge University in order to support students applying to any of the Russell Group universities, which are the top research-focused universities in the UK and therefore have the most competitive applications processes. As part of the HE+ and Early Applicants pathway, students will have the opportunity to attend subject seminars, applications workshops university summer schools and residential visits – including the chance to visit both Oxford and Cambridge universities.

APPRENTICESHIP AND EMPLOYMENT We realise that employers are now seeking technical experience and employability skills for their future job roles so it is crucial that we are able to deliver a programme that meets these changing labour market requirements. This programme is designed to help those students who do not want to go to university develop the key employability

Page 28

skills needed to succeed by increasing their engagement with local employers. Students on this pathway will benefit from industry mentoring, specialist apprenticeship careers guidance, employer networking opportunities , master classes and workshops and trips in order to help reach their career goals, boost their CV’s and create a stand out application.

South Hunsley Sixth Form

EMPLOYER LED PROGRAMME The Employer Led Programme is a unique pathway for students who want to strengthen their employability skills whilst also studying on our A Level programme. This is a demanding programme of study that has been developed in consultation with employers and offers students work-related opportunities that are not available in any other Sixth Form College.  

1 2

This programme will equip you with key employability skills and give you access to professional industry placements. If you are aiming for a high profile career, whether via a graduate route or via a traineeship or apprenticeship straight after sixth form, this programme would be ideal to help you develop business contacts in your chosen career sector.

Nicola Nowak “A Level Physics is undeniably a puzzling, yet fulfilling subject; in essence, it is like contextualised maths. I particularly enjoyed the application of Newton’s laws of motion to real-world scenarios, as well as the properties of waves. Hoping to study medicine, I was surprised how this course allows me to prosper and broaden my knowledge in this branch of science through a medical application module (which can be alternatively chosen between astrophysics). This subject is great for anyone with a pragmatic approach, and a general interest in science.”
