Student Perspectives:

Ajay Joshi

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I chose to come to Hatton VI Form because it provides me with the best opportunities to achieve what I want to, both academically and for future preparation. Also, with all the subject areas being strong in providing students with the grades they deserve was also another reason that I attended the VI Form. With the school having an outstanding and getting students the best grades possible, I believed that Hatton VI Form was the best place to continue my education.

Which subjects are you studying?

I am currently studying Maths, Biology and  A-level Business Studies.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

After joining the VI Form, despite being a student, the teachers treat us like adults and this is a lot different to lower school because we are given a lot more independence to work in class. Also, having a different timetable that involves study periods, which allows me to review my work in the day and the free periods, allow most students to have a lot more freedom in comparison to lower school.

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

Start revising as soon as possible in order to achieve the best grades possible and further your education, potentially even at Hatton VI Form.

What are your aspirations?

Go to America to study Economics at the University of Stanford.

 

Harriett Ede-Collis

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I feel as if it is the best path for me to further my learning. As well as this I am able to broaden my knowledge in the best way and gain the experience I need in order to move forward to university. Providing me with the most academically strong subjects, Hatton will b the greatest experience too.

Which subjects are you studying?

English literature, Applied Science and Philosophy and Ethics.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

Being able to have study periods which I use to complete assignments so that my work load does not become out of control. So, being independent and having to be organised.

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

My advice would be to persevere with your work and do not let anyone get in the way of achieving your goals. Only you can help yourself to get to that end goal in life.

What are your aspirations?

My aspirations are to become a veterinary nurse. In addition to this however, I would like to be a part time k9 enhancement trainer.

 

Rian Patel

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I chose Hatton Sixth Form because it was convenient to where I live, but more importantly I knew how the school worked, knew teachers and staff well, who know me well in return. Knowing that Hatton Sixth Form and Hatton itself has very good teaching and benefits, was also a good and important thing to bare in mind.

Which subjects are you studying?

I currently study Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths; that's not what it started out as at the beginning of the year, nor was it definitely what I had set my mind on during Year 11. I had put a lot of thought into evaluating which 4 subjects I would like to do, and the school's team were supportive and co-operative in me changing my mind, and helping me make up mind. My GCSE results did not make my decision any easier as they were all really good all round, from the Sciences and Maths to English and Humanities. I love learning and for those who would love to learn anything and everything it may be difficult to choose just 4 subjects that you like in regard to your future (which also is undecided for me) and which also do not clash in timetables. For example, my favourite subject may surprise you to be History, but it clashed with Chemistry (which I also love) and a choice had to be made, one that ultimately has to be and is your own, no matter how much support the school or your family may give you.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

Being able to take up more responsibilities, more roles in both supporting the school and also for yourself and your learning, especially when you have 5 study periods during the school week. There is much more to get involved in and there is certainly something appealing about moving back and forth from the separate Sixth Form block and the main school, especially when you have to be your own time keeper, there are no bells! (But that doesn't mean you'll be late - I never have been across my whole time at school)

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

Making your option choices is very important and can be difficult, with lots of factors to cover and take into account. For those who know what they are going to choose, that's great, but be careful while initially subjects will have a little or no jump to ease you in, you might get stuck in the deep end later on, so ask teachers questions and go through course related stuff like the specification to see how much you'd actually like it. If you are like I was, then I recommend you do the same things, but also take opportunities and time to speak to the Sixth Form team who would help and offer advice, but the decision is yours so take it with caution and don't lie to yourself, you will know what's best somewhere in your head, trust me!

What are your aspirations?

Personally, I remain unsure of what I want to study at university and eventually what I want to become. University is an option I have chosen; there are others you may want to consider. Slowly but surely I am sure I will narrow down what I want to do, something in the medical field is what I am thinking currently, but I wouldn't discount anything far flung like politics, another passion of mine.

 

Bethany Lyne

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I chose Hatton VI Form because of the quality of teaching and the fact that I had grown more comfortable here while studying for my GCSEs.

Which subjects are you studying?)

I am studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

For me, the best thing about VI Form is the fact that I am now studying the subjects I enjoy most and get to dedicate more of my time to them. I also like the opportunities it has given me through being a senior student.

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

My main advice to year 11s would be to learn things gradually - there's no point knowing everything now if you've burned yourself out by May.

What are your aspirations?

My main goal is to get into a well established university and eventually to work for MSF with a medical qualification.

I know the teachers in the subjects that I wish to study are specialists and the facilities that are on offer will help me in achieving the best grades.

Maths, Further Maths and Physics

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

The freedom of having private study and free periods in which you can manage your time efficiently and also leave site.

Manage your time efficiently and start revising from very early on in the year.

Daisy Essam

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I chose Hatton as I knew that the department's were strong for the subjects I wanted to study; I liked all the teachers and knew they would be helpful. I also already had good friends from my previous 5 years here.

Which subjects are you studying?

I am currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and History.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

The best thing about VI Form for me is being able to study subjects that I genuinely enjoy at a much deeper level than I had at GCSE. I find lessons much more interesting this year than I have before.

What would your advice to current year 11s be?

To work hard even if it feels hopeless. There's no point in giving up, it won't get you any further.

What are your aspirations?

My current aspirations are to achieve the best possible grades at A level and hopefully attend Oxbridge, potentially to study Economics.
