The most rewarding part of being the Director of Sixth Form is on A Level results day seeing the joy when students open their results and the excitement of meeting their University offers.
The second most rewarding part of my role is when students remain in contact with me and even when they pop back in to visit. They often go around and thank all their teachers for all the support, guidance and advice they were given during their time at The Quest Academy. This year has been no exception. Over the first term alone I have had numerous emails and students returning to let me know how grateful they are for the work we do to enable them to make a smooth transition to undergraduate level study and independent life.
It was a pleasure to unveil the new destinations poster showing the University and course that each student from last years cohort has moved onto. It was a privilege to have a number of alumni come back from their first semester at University to be a part of the unveiling and they certainly couldn’t hide their pride as they pointed at themselves!
