ANTONIO CAPARELLI – URBAN STUDIES & TOWN PLANNING AT SHEFFIELD UNI
The 6th form has a very ’family’ atmosphere. My teachers and form tutor put in 100% when writing my references for University and provided me with useful advice to meet my target grades for Uni! Before I started in the 6th form, I hadn't even considered going to University so through careers advice (on PSHE Days, and similar things) I began to realise what field of employment I wanted to go in to once I left post-16. The 6th form is also well regarded by Universities as well as around East Lancashire.
DANIEL FITCH – PRIMARY TEACHING AT CHESTER UNI
Saint Wilfrids VIth form provided me with the perfect platform to improve myself in all areas. I found the facilities and staff excellent and would not hesitate to recommend this college to any year 11's.
I already miss the family feel at sixth form after receiving great support and guidance during my time there.
I am now studying Education Studies and Maths at the University of Chester, which i am loving. However, i still miss VIth form massively.
HAYLEY BALL – SOCIOLOGY AT WORCESTER
I miss Wilfrids because everybody knew everybody... if that’s a good thing, there is always someone to go to, plus after 7 years its like a second home! :D
EMILY WATTS – BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE – BANGOR
The main reason I chose to carry on at St Wilfrids 6th form is because of how comfortable I felt in the classroom with the teachers. Teachers at Wilfrids have a great rapport with the students and treat them like adults.
I really enjoyed the house system at St Wilfrids. I became a house captain and felt really involved. It was lots of fun and brought students together in a competitive and fun way. That’s the thing I will miss most, the house system (Truro!!) and the friendly atmosphere of knowing everyone.
I’m currently in my second year at Bangor University studying Biomedical Science.
FIONA METCALF – SOCIOLOGY AT NOTTINGHAM
My time at Wilfrid’s shaped me as a person and became two of the most enjoyable years of my life – I loved it!
CHARLOTTE HEATLEY – SOCIOLOGY AT MANCHESTER MET
Basically I loved how much it was like your second family, everyone is a familiar face and I never felt afraid to ask any of my teachers for help or go and knock on anyone’s office if I was stuck! I never wanted to leave and everyone I speak to now, even though they love uni, would kill to go back, which says loads I think.
Basically i loved it all so much and would pay anything to go back for a day :)
