Lower Sixth Higher Education Morning

Saturday’s Higher Education Morning for the Lower Sixth, run by the Sixth Form Leadership Team of Sally Rowley, Rebecca Murdoch and Julia Bird, provided pupils with invaluable information and advice about the next stages of their education, post Wells, whether applying to university, music college, taking a Gap year or seeking apprenticeships and employment.

In addition to advice from Head of Sixth Form, Sally Rowley, the School hosted talks from experienced and informative external speakers: The University Admissions Process, by Iwan Hopkins from the University of Cardiff Admissions team; Transition from School to University by Dr. Dom Thompson, a former GP and author of ‘How to Grow A Grown Up’; an introduction to the International Admissions Process from David Hawkins; and a Conservatoire Applications Overview from Nicola Peacock at the Royal College of Music, hosted by Alison Armstrong.

In the afternoon, Head of Upper Sixth, Julia Bird, gave a relaxed and informal talk about the Transition to Ritchie House.

Feedback from pupils and parents was hugely positive:

“Thank you all for such an informative and relaxed Higher Education event this morning – loads of useful info, efficiently presented and a very warm welcome to the Upper Sixth for pupils.”  – Lower Sixth parent

Many thanks to you and Wells staff for an excellent presentation earlier today. The guest speakers were both interesting and informative and helped answer questions we had.” – Lower Sixth parent

“I just wanted to say thank you for going ahead and organising today’s webinars. We really appreciated the information and also hearing about the pastoral elements which are so important.”
– Lower Sixth parent
