Year 11 “Kick Start Day”

After a restful Summer in which our previous Year 11 achieved the greatest results in Mount St Mary’s history, the gates opened to welcome back our new cohort to take on the challenges of their final year of school.

Invited in for a Year 11 Kick Start conference, students prepared well, arriving in formal business dress for a conference event with a difference. Treated like young adults, students were given feedback and constant tips on interview etiquette throughout the day.

The entire year group took part in a variety of tasks to prepare them for their exams and life beyond Mount St Mary’s. Students developed interviews skills, studied application forms, prepared for colleges, developed their work on revision and the exam rubrics and learnt about money and life finances, as well as sessions on physical and mental health.

Labelled “Kick Start Day” the day was an incredible success as students left the event motivated and ready to achieve great outcomes. Students did themselves proud as they hit the ground running and proved they are ready to face the challenges of Year 11 with strength and determination and a much more detailed knowledge on life beyond Year 11, proving at Mount St Mary’s great outcomes are achieved every day.
