At d’Overbroeck’s International School, we want our students to be informed about the range of options available for them after the completion of their studies with us.
After their IGCSE courses, some of our students continue their education in the UK, studying either A levels or International Baccalaureate at top schools in the UK, while other students carry on with their studies in top schools in their home countries.
Many of our students, however, decide to join d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form, as they feel it is a smooth transition into an educational system that they are already familiar with.
This is why we recently invited the Head of d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form, Alasdair McPherson, to talk to our 11i students about the transition from Year 11 to Sixth Form.
The Head of d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form spoke to our students about the academic and social aspects of the school. From an academic point of view, our students were able to find out information about:
- The range of A level subjects available, and the fact that students have the liberty to choose the combination of subjects that best fits their strengths;
- The Extended Project Qualification
- The Oxbridge Programme, for students interested in applying to the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge
- The Medicine Programme
Of course, student life in the Sixth Form was also a big part of the conversation. At d’Overbroeck’s, we want our students to be able to develop as individuals and succeed not just academically, but also socially. So, throughout the 2 years of Sixth Form, our students enjoy a busy social programme, filled with:
Two former International School students, now Sixth Form students at d’Overbroeck’s, Michael and Ronald, also attended the workshop and talks to our students about their transition to Sixth Form.
We hope this meeting has offered our students sufficient information to help them decide whether continuing their studies in the Sixth Form, be it at d’Overbroeck’s or any other school, is the path they would like to pursue.
Most importantly, we will continue to guide and encourage them to make the right choice for their further studies through our series of workshops scheduled for this year.
