SIXTH Form students from Winterbourne International Academy have produced their own alternative prospectus giving the lowdown on post-16 life at the academy.
Their publication includes revision tips, advice on budgeting, and how to prepare for your first day in sixth form as well as all-important information about the common room, cafe, trips, parties, proms and other events.
Five students from Years 12 and 13 worked on the propsectus with support from Rob Phillips, head of communications at The Ridings Federation of Academies, and Allan Finnie, studio manager at Pace Print in Clevedon.
The students, Rachel Hickey, Chloe Yuen, Holly Sawyer, Tily Brogan and Elliana Saladino, who have recently been busy with AS and A-level examinations, are considering further education or employment opportunities in journalism, PR, media and marketing.
Mr Finnie said: “I thought the students were brilliant. It was great to hear them coming up with so many ideas and bringing such enthusiasm to the project.”
Mr Phillips added: “The students have impressed me throughout the process with their ideas and the understanding of the project. The last Ofsted report highlighted our Sixth Form’s commitment to helping students shape the next stages of their education and employment and this experience will prove invaluable to them. All five students have a bright future ahead of them.”
