We have a new leadership team driving this focus – supported by a team of dedicated and highly qualified academic and professional services staff.
Our state-of-the-art facilities offer the very best learning experience, and our students tell us that support for students is truly outstanding.
We will continue to build on the whole range of additional activities that widen students’ college experience and help them develop valuable knowledge and skills to support successful progression. We have also strengthened our team in other ways, to ensure we will continue to develop strong links with local employers. Many of our students benefit from work placements and expert advice from industry professionals during their time with us.
The focus of my Principal’s presentations to students in December was to ‘Think Ahead’. Many of our students are receiving offers from universities, and staff will be supporting them in their quest to progress onto university next year. Our careers team will help those wanting to secure an apprenticeship or employment with training opportunities.
Those students remaining with us have now clear targets, and progression plans are in place.
All our new applicants will be receiving an initial email this month with details of how to book their college interview. Once booked, they will receive a follow-up confirmation letter, explaining what to bring to the interview. This will secure their place at this great college for 18/19.
Application Window One closes on the 31st January, and we will interview all applicants in February. Then Application Window Two opens on March 1st. Our applications in year are up again, and we will again be oversubscribed in many areas. Don’t delay! #applynow #secretsout
As a sportsman, I have a keen focus on ‘developing mind and character’. I know that my personal support has enabled even more students to develop self-confidence, valuable transferable skills, and many play an active role in college and community life. This college really does enhance students’ personal development.
In my short time at the college, I have seen the passion, hard work and commitment demonstrated by staff and students and how they have benefitted from the positive community spirit that permeates through college every day.
Visitors to the college frequently comment on its happy and purposeful atmosphere. I believe this comes from the friendly and respectful relationships, existing between staff and students. Our college is a community, where each person is valued and can flourish.
I am looking forward to another amazing transformational year here with #TeamHaringey6.
We are proud of our achievements – many of which have had national recognition due to the successes of our students.
For those reading this for the very first time and those considering the college for their post 16 education, I warmly invite you to explore Haringey Sixth Form College for yourself.
We have VIP visits with our VP (our amazing Vice Principal Lisa Westray) in January, and our next open event is on Wednesday 21st February. Come and get a feel for the college firsthand. All details are on the website.
I look forward to welcoming you to #TeamHaringey6.
