"I love having the freedom and independence to learn that the staff give me in the Sixth Form. I have been given some amazing opportunities here such as planning a murder mystery event and choreographing and performing dances in our annual dance show. The teachers here are really passionate about the students and care about our grades and successes, but also about us as people. I’ve met lots of new people and made a lot of new friends; all we all have the same goals and support each other to achieve them.
I aspire to have a career in musical theatre and to perform in the West End and I’m going to apply to a London Theatre College next year. West Hatch has given me amazing opportunities and I can’t wait to start my second year here."
Subjects: A Level Psychology, English Literature and Language, BTEC Performing Arts/Dance
"I am enjoying being a Sixth Former at West Hatch because its such a warm, friendly environment to be in. All of the teachers are really helpful and respectful towards the students and because of this, I’ve built really good relationships with them. I enjoy all of my subjects and I find the lessons very interesting.
All of the students at West Hatch are very friendly and easy to get along with. That’s really helped me to settle in to Sixth Form life.
As a Sixth Fomer I can use the Sixth Form study centre to work as well as the common room to socialise and relax. Although I’m not completely sure which career path I wish to follow, I’m definitely considering going to University and I’d like to go on to study a degree in the field of Business."

"My aim for after Sixth Form is to study Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. To describe Sixth Form life at West Hatch, I’d say comfortable. You know, from the calm atmosphere of the common room to the rush in the canteen to get the last breakfast pizza! However I have to say that the teachers really do push me to work hard so that I can get to where I want to be."
Studying: A Level Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Psychology.

"West Hatch has allowed me to be able to work towards the grades I need to be able to study Business Management and Accountancy at University. Teachers allow me to interact with them on a professional level so that I can develop my knowledge and think outside the box. I know this will help me when I go to Uni as I’ll be able to look back over the skills they’ve helped me to develop over time.
At West Hatch they help to be ready for the world of work. I’m a prefect and a peer mentor and these things help me to interact with the whole school community and also help my peers whenever they need me.
I’ve been at West Hatch for 6 years and I’ve worked hard to follow the school ethos and be the best that I can be. I believe this will help me to achieve my ambitions and to my best at University in the future."
