We asked Sophie and James about their experience of joining St. Julie’s Sixth Form.
Q. Why did you choose St. Julie’s Sixth Form?
J: It was something different for me as I’d moved from Torquay and it’s been one of the best reviewed schools that I’ve seen.
S: I came from a mixed school and wanted to try something different, and the curriculum offered Politics which I was very keen to study.
Q: What would you say is the best thing about St. Julie’s Sixth Form?
S: The people. The teachers are lovely, the people are lovely.
J: I agree. I’ve never been made more welcome in a school before.
Q. Would you encourage other external applicants to apply? Why?
S: I would. I think that when you go to University you need to go through the experience of meeting new people and this has given me a taste of what that feels like.
J: I would too. I’ve fitted in so much better than I thought I would.
Q: Would you say that the staff and students at St. Julie’s make it easy to fit in and feel accepted?
J: One hundred percent. They’re always looking out for me and they’re always asking questions.
S: I agree. There was an initial “Are you ok? Are you settling in? Are you keeping on top of things?” That really helped. Now I feel part of the school.
Q: Which of your subjects do you enjoy most and why?
S: Politics, as it’s something I’ve never done before and something new, which is great.
J: I personally really enjoy ICT as it’s a new experience for me and the teacher is the best I could wish for.
Q: How easy was it for you to make new friends when you arrived?
J: As soon as I came in everyone was really welcoming, asking me for my name and questions about myself.
S: It was just the same for me!
