Futures Week: Year 12 aspirations and plans beyond sixth form

Huxlow’s sixth form, alongside their partners in The East Northamptonshire College (TENC), organised Futures Week from Monday 20th – Friday 24th June, a week full of events aimed at current Year 12s to give a taster of the different options open to them after sixth form.

We went to the Bedford UCAS conference where universities from around the country were displaying what they had to offer new students. We also went to Nottingham University Open Day to see what life would be like as an undergraduate. For those not interested in going to university, we had speakers in from Unilever and Grant Thornton talking about apprenticeships they can offer as well as visits to Northampton to see XPO Logistics and Shoosmiths Solicitors.
