Head of sixth form Bronia Harris explained: "There's a wonderful atmosphere on taster day. Visiting students can work alongside our own students and get to know them so it's not so daunting for them arriving in September.

"All the students can find out more about the subjects they're thinking of taking and talk informally to teachers.”

She added: “It’s important to get the right combination of courses to match future plans and aspirations so this is one of the things we do to help them make those important decisions. It's a very valuable opportunity."
