We opened our doors to pupils from schools across South Yorkshire to give them a taste of A Levels.

Over 450 Year 10 and 11 pupils sampled a range of the 27 A Level subjects on offer. During the two-day event, pupils were able to experience the subjects they may be interested in studying when they leave school and gain an understanding of the wide-ranging support available to them.

On both days pupils were also treated to a lunchtime performance by our Musical Theatre Group.

Darton College pupil Lucy England, who attended classes in Art and Design, English and Psychology, said: “It was an interesting day as it provided options for my career choices. It helped me to decide which subjects are for me and which ones I don’t want to study at A Level.”

Winterhill School pupil Charlie Kenny, who attended classes in History, IT and Media, added: “I enjoyed the event because I got to see which courses I would study if I chose to study at the Sixth Form.”
