Lower Sixth at the HE Conference

University hopefuls at Rydal Penrhos have been begun preparations ahead of possible placements next year.

The Lower Sixth pupils took a trip to the UCAS Higher Education Exhibition, which was held in Liverpool on Thursday, June 15.

During the event the 59-strong group were able to attend subject specific talks and engage with admission officers from a large number of UK universities.

The trip was in preparation for today’s (Friday 16) Higher Education Preparation Day, where the pupils will begin filling out their UCAS forms in the hope of gaining a place at the University of their choosing next year.

The whole-day programme will see pupils’ working with their tutors, recent alumni and teacher Michael Pender to research universities, courses and prepare their personal statements.

In addition there will be specific talks for international pupils, as well as those looking to apply to American universities.

Head of Sixth Form Peter Lavery, said: “The pupils have shown a tremendous application to the process already, which has been very pleasing.”

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, added: “This can be a daunting time for pupils as they look to the future, so it is fantastic that we have events such as this, which give them as much knowledge and preparation as possible in order for the process to go as smoothly as possible.”
