Sixth Form open evening
Davenant Foundation School welcomed many prospective students to its Sixth Form Open Evening on Monday.
The event was extremely well attended with students and their parents enjoying tours around the school hosted by current Sixth Form students.
Visitors also had the opportunity to meet and discuss subjects and course content with Heads of Department.
Headteacher Adam Thorne introduced the evening and welcomed the visitors to the school.
Deputy Headteacher Roy Taylor then provided a comprehensive overview of the excellent opportunities Davenant provides both in terms of A-Level subjects and independent study.
Also covered was the varied extra-curricular programme which includes music and performing arts, CSLA Sports Leadership awards through to volunteering work in the local community.
Feedback was very positive with students displaying enthusiasm and interest in their future aspiration and study choices.
One delighted parent said: "We were delighted to meet with some really informative teachers who are clearly passionate about their subjects and were able to answer all our questions.
"It was particularly refreshing to hear from a Year 12 student who recently joined Davenant Sixth Form and spoke so positively about his transition from his local high school."
