    EPQ Presentations and Year 12 Launch

    Monday saw the launch of this year’s JC6 EPQ Programme with a kick off presentation to year 12 students. Over forty eager students expressed an interest in the qualification this year and it is wonderful to see how committed our students are to capitalising on additional opportunities for success. 

    In addition to A Level and BTEC qualifications, JC6 offers sixth form students the option to secure the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). EPQ students have the freedom to explore topics in greater depth and gain an additional qualification that has its own UCAS point value. The qualification is highly regarded by universities, employers and apprenticeship providers and year after year students who complete an EPQ are able to accept places at top Russell Group Universities.

    Alongside the year 12 launch, EPQ students in year 13 completed their final presentations this week. After finishing their projects, students are required to present to an audience and answer questions.

    EPQ project titles this year included, ‘In the real number system, are some numbers more irrational than others?’, ‘To what extent has UK legislation and social factors influenced the perception of firearm use for modern day society’ and ‘How well has encryption protected our data through the technological age?’ Mr Boast, KS5 Director for Learning, commenting how impressed he was the presentations, sharing how students presented with, ‘confidence and maturity’.

    Building Connections With Expert Career Ready Mentors

    Expert careers advice and links with top universities and employers is a crucial part of our Year 12 and 13 provision. This ensures that our students leave us ready to take up competitive roles within industry, join leading apprenticeship programmes and except offers from top universities. Part of this provision is our well established Career Ready programme which connects our students with leading industry professionals. 

    We are the only school in Leicestershire to offer the full Year 12 Career Ready programme and Career Ready introduces students to a valuable network of business links through a series of guest speakers, industry mentors, off site visits and employability workshops. Year after year our students tell us how invaluable their time on the Career Ready programme was and students even have a history of securing internships and jobs for the businesses they work with.

    This year our Career Ready programme has had to take place virtually, however this hasn't stopped out students getting to meet their personal careers mentor online this week. Mentors include top industry professionals from PepsiCo, Jaguar Landrover, Black Horse, Seva Logistics, City Back, Mars, Arcadis, Morrisons, Silicon Valley Bank, Ofcom, Vortex Optical and Leicester University. All of whom will personally mentor our Career Ready students, imparting their knowledge and experiences to help them become industry leaders themselves.

    Alumni Programme Promises to Inspire Future STEM Professionals

    High quality careers guidance is a core focus at Hinckley Academy and John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre. It allows our students to develop high aspirations and consider a broad and ambitious range of careers. Our most important aim is to support, guide and advise students in order to make them confident, independent and able to make well informed, realistic career decisions. We strive to inspire and motivate our students in all year groups in order to fulfil their potential and engaging with our former students plays an important role in this, with staff regularly holding events which allow former students to share their successes with current students.

    Miss Cook, Teacher of Science, is our latest staff member to build on our alumni connections in order to inspire students to explore careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This new project, supported by a grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry sees Miss Cook call upon all former students who have go on to work in a STEM related career to share their experiences. This could be anyone who previously attended the school and who now uses STEM within their role, including engineers, software developers, architects, surgeons, pharmacists, carpenters and individuals within the food, health, beauty, motor, aviation and art industries.

    Becoming part of this project means experts in STEM careers will be able to pass on their knowledge and share their experiences with our students, through career profiles, displays, careers events and presentations. The STEM alumni database will allow the academy to continue to connect learners with key professionals in order to raise aspirations.

    If you would like to take part and to find out more information, please contact Miss Cook -

    Lawrence House Christmas Appeal

    JC6 students have once again shown their support to Lawrence House in Hinckley through their now annual fundraising events, when they take a moment to focus on others over the festive period. This year, as well as the tradition of making Lawrence House residents goodie bags, students also staged additional events to further support the local charity. 

    JC6 students worked in their tutor groups to create a bag full of gifts for one of the young men or women staying at Lawrence House, part of the Hinckley Homeless Group. These thoughtful gifts ranged from toiletries and hot chocolate, to sweets
    and mindful colouring books, with students putting a lot of time and thought into their goodie bags.

    Paula Tomkins, John Cleveland Sixth Form Administrator and co-ordinator of the Lawrence House Christmas Appeal commented, “as the young people in Lawrence House are between 16 – 25 years of age it is a cause particularly close to our
    students’ hearts. They have really thought about what it must be like to be in someone else’s shoes and have all worked together to create a truly special gift bag to put a smile on someone’s face. It is great to know that our students’ acts of kindness will make a real difference”

    This year’s event was even bigger than ever, with JC6 students getting the younger Hinckley Academy pupils involved too by staging a non-uniform day. This larger scale event meant that every £1 students donated for wearing Christmas non-uniform
    could also be donated to Lawrence House, alongside the goodie bags, helping to provide essential accommodation and support to those in need.

    Ms Paterson said, “In what has been a very challenging year, it feels more important than ever for us all to be supporting others over the festive period and I am so proud that JC6 has once again been able to support such a vital local charity.”

    Louise Adams, Project Manager from the Hinckley Homeless Group said, “It’s been a very different year than anyone imagined and has brought many challenges in the running of Lawrence House. JC6 giving presents and fundraising for Lawrence House, at what is a difficult time for so many, is amazing. This thoughtfulness ensures that everyone is supported and remembered at Christmas. Thank you to all the students and staff involved.”

    Everybody here at John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre would like to wish all the residents of Lawrence House a very 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year' and hope they enjoy their goodie bags full of festive cheer!
