VI Form Testimonials

Read testimonials from our VI Formers on why they chose Sir Christopher Hatton VI Form

Harry McWilliam Year 12 

Why did you choose Hatton VI Form?

I chose to Hatton VI Form as I knew it was the place for me.  I am very academic and love to learn and I felt that the best place to do so would be in this familiar environment.  I think the teachers at Hatton are amazing and Iwouldn't feel comfortable learning anywhere else.

Which subjects are you studying?

I am studying Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Chemistry.

What is the best thing about VI Form so far?

Personally I love the content.  Each lesson is challenging and interesting, which for me is a new phenomenon.  I find that the way we are treated as adults is also a very welcomed change from year 11.  The teachers are also very willing to help with any problems that I have.  Equally, the VI Form has provided me with so many opportunities, both academically and otherwise, such as the ability to set up and run a society, as they would in university.

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

My only piece of advice to year 11s would be not to worry.  Worrying gets you nowhere in life and just causes unnecessary stress, which is something that all of us could do with less of.  Just take things at your own pace and evrything will be fine.

What are your aspirations?

To study Maths, Medicine or Biochemistry at Oxford University.

What would your advice to current Year 11s be?

Hard work always pays off! Start early to avoid stressing and cramming. Picking your A levels can be quite scary and is very important but pick what you enjoy as you don’t want to be studying something you dislike, this will make you want to work for it too.
