For the first part of the year, the main focus for year 11s is their choice of Post-16 provider. During the course of the Autumn term look at the Post-16 provision that is on offer around the region with dedicated PSHE day and Post-16 evenings. Applications are made just after Christmas and the interview process happens in February/March.
The second half of the year is focussed on exams and completing the courses that students have chosen. The year culminates with a Celebration Day and the Leaver’s Ball which gives students the chance to celebrate their time at Bottisham.
Students have the chance to take on different roles and responsibilities. A number of students act as mentors for the younger year groups and the Student Leadership Team have the opportunity to take the lead on a variety of different aspects of school life.
