Taster Day Gives Year 10 Students A Closer Look At Sixth Form College Options

Louth Academy Year 10 students visit Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College Taster Day. Current Sixth Form College students, Melvin Mensah and Elizabeth Hill, with Louth Academy students (l-r) Kandi Austin, Kurtis Wilkinson, Shannon Graves, Hannah Shaw, Kiera Milson and Isabelle Collins.


Louth and Somercotes Academy Year 10 students enjoyed Taster Days at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College with the opportunity to meet the Management Team, A Level teachers and current students. They joined in with an A Level lesson to get a sense of the different teaching style used at this level.

Richard Foster, Deputy Head of the College, briefed the students about the principles of the college, the subject options available and the support programme that Tollbar Sixth Form students enjoy as they complete their A Level studies.

Charlie Brady, who is an ex-Somercotes Academy student now studying at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, encouraged the visitors. He said: "I'm really enjoying it at Tollbar. I was made to feel very welcome. I made friends quickly. I'm studying Biology, Geography and Chemistry."
