It has been a week filled with enthusiasm and valuable insights as our Year 12 students embarked on two days of activities aimed at shaping their futures. With Futures Day and Interview Day, our sixth-formers received guidance and inspiration, and honed their skills to take their next steps confidently.

Wednesday was Futures Day, and the Platinum Jubilee Hall and Hind House were abuzz with anticipation as students delved into the intricacies of university and apprenticeship applications. Specialists took the stage, shedding light on crucial considerations when deciding their future paths.

From selecting the right course to exploring the option of a gap year, studying abroad, or engaging in industrial placement years, our students were treated to a wealth of knowledge from the guests.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Jane Marshall from Optimising Futures, David Hawkins from The University Guys, University of Surrey, University of Bath, and Libby McNicol, an esteemed alumna of RMS, for inspiring our students to dream big.

Thursday unfolded with Interview Day, serving a dual purpose of refining students’ interview skills and focusing their minds on the routes they wish to pursue after Sixth Form. A panel of experienced interviewers, experts in their respective fields, were on hand to guide and evaluate the girls’ performance.

The students showcased impressive abilities and received invaluable feedback that will undoubtedly shape their next steps. Our sincere gratitude goes to the volunteers from the University of Hertfordshire, Oxford Brookes University, as well as the alumnae and parents who represented diverse fields such as broadcasting, medicine, finance, research, consultancy, creative arts, and many more.

This marks only the beginning of our students’ journeys, and we are thrilled to continue supporting them as they explore the vast array of opportunities that lie ahead. The foundation of knowledge, inspiration, and skills gained during these two days will undoubtedly propel them towards fulfilling and successful futures.

As our Year 12 students embark on this exciting chapter, we wish them all the best in their endeavors and are confident that they will make a positive impact on the world around them.
