Preparing for life beyond school has always been at the heart of the St Margaret's sixth year experience. Whilst continuing to realise academic potential, we strive to equip girls with the necessary life skills to enable them to embrace and meet challenges with confidence. At the end of sixth year girls leave us as accomplished young women ready to take their place on the world stage.
In these unusual times we find ourselves living through, we have been presented with many challenges, but with that have come wonderful and unique possibilities. We have seized this opportunity to provide a robust package of experiences and activities to enhance this provision for our sixth year pupils, despite the restrictions.
For the final summer term, we have introduced a comprehensive series of events and activities, for our VI Senior girls. The bespoke programme sees pupils engaging in core sessions, focussing on wellbeing and enrichment, in addition to elective studies on topics as diverse as sign language and forensic science which are complemented by extra-curricular opportunities . This programme is being delivered in a variety of ways: formal courses, specialist webinars, lectures, recommended reading, and active engagement in discussion and debate. Whilst key areas such as finance, nutrition and independent living feature, there is also a focus on essential practical skills and mental health care.
Although we will continue to celebrate our VI Seniors in style this term, we look forward to welcoming the girls back to school later in the year to say a fond farewell in person, and to formally recognise the success and achievements of all our leavers, which are many and varied.
