Rainhill Sixth Form parents get progression advice from local providers.
On 8th May 2019, Year 12 parents gathered in the study room for the annual ‘Parents Progression Evening’. This event allows parents to gather information, advice and guidance on how to support their son/daughter in their post-18 choices straight from a variety of local providers.
The evening started with Mr Hemsley talking through LP3 expectation, Year 13 enrollment and progression events coming up after half term. Parents were informed that LP3 would direct our advice about Year 13 enrollment and progression, so it was important that students revised and did their very best. UCAS week will be held on the week commencing 3rd June 2019 this year. As always, all Year 12 will take part in a one day workshop, completing their basic UCAS form and a draft of their personal statement. Further provision for apprenticeship applicants and UCAS applicants will be delivered through PSE and this was outlined to parents too.
The first local provider to give parents an insight into Post-18 provision was Edge Hill University. Samantha Levitt went through student finance, student options and advised parents to start calendaring open days in this summer.
