Sir Frederick Gibberd Sixth Form Welcomes First Sixth Form StudentsPosted: 13th September 2021
The First cohort of sixth form students and teachers detail their productive experiences of their initial week at Sir Frederick Gibberd College’s Sixth Form
Matthew Yerosimou, Head of Year 12, praised the students who have transitioned from year 11 into Sixth Form.
He said: “The students have settled into being sixth formers incredibly well. They’re all dressed so smartly and they’re loving their common room. I don’t think any of them have struggled at all with the transition.”
Mr Yerosimou also praised the facilities at SFG and stated that they are unlike any other school he has taught in.
He continued: “In terms of schools, I’ve never seen one look like SFG. This really is a modern building; every facility is unbelievable. The students will have every tool available to them. In-terms of getting the students into the universities that they deserve, such as Russel Group and Oxbridge, we want them to aim as high as they possibly can because why shouldn’t they?
“The roadmap of where we want to go [with the sixth form] and the process of getting there really excites me.”
Daniel Gilroy and Poppy Hazle are Year 12 students. Daniel said that the idea of going to a new school and seeing new people led him to join SFG.
He said: “When we took a tour of the building, I liked the fact that it is new and I wanted to be a part of the first cohort of students, it is very exciting to be at the top of the school. “
Poppy stated: “I was surprised how relaxed the experience was when initially joining the Sixth Form. I thought that it would be slightly more intense but they eased us into it, so it wasn’t ever overwhelming.”
