Dear Parents and Carers,
Leytonstone School will be hosting a ‘College Roadshow’ on Thursday, 31st October in our main hall from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm. We would like to invite all Y10 and Y11 pupils, and their parents/carers, to come to this event, which will be attended by over 30 college and further education providers.
This will be an excellent opportunity for pupils to start researching and discussing the various course options available to them after they complete their GCSEs, and to discuss directly with colleges where different course pathways may lead them in the future. It will also be an excellent opportunity for pupils to learn about the specific requirements courses may have, as well as application deadlines.
Attending the event will be a mixture of colleges, academies, technical colleges and apprenticeship providers from the local area and across London. We will be following-up this event with further information about the application process for further education; guidance in writing personal statements and CV’s; interview skills and completing college applications, all of which will be cascaded through form time activities. A wealth of resources, and further advice and guidance can be obtained in our library and through speaking with Anita Naggea, our Learning Resource Centre manager. Also attached is a comprehensive list of colleges and further education providers that pupils can use to begin their own research.
We sincerely hope you are able to join us on the 31st October, and look forward to welcoming you all to this event.
Assistant Head Teacher
