On Wednesday 13th September, all of the Year 11s went to a Post 16 progression event at Ravensbourne College. We left school at 12:30 on hired TFL red buses to North Greenwich. Upon arrival, we were escorted from the coach drop-off point to the college, where we had a brief talk about health and safety; after the health and safety talk we went upstairs where another talk was delivered about the event and the websites (such as UCAS) out there that can help us decide the path we want to take after secondary school.
At the event, there was an abundance of stalls from schools, colleges and apprenticeship providers. The event was really useful, as were able to find out about the opportunities that are available to us in the Royal Borough of Greenwich once we leave secondary school. The event was also quite overwhelming due to the reality of how near we are to the end of our secondary school journey, however, it also made us feel quite grateful to know that there are so many local provisions out there for us.
