JOSIE BALLARD | FINE ART STUDENT
I chose this subject because it was something I enjoyed at GCSE and wanted to continue doing. I have enjoyed being able to personalise my portfolio to something I want to study, and increase me independence. Art has enabled me to be able to use my time management skills better when sticking to deadlines and has also developed my essay–writing skills which will be useful in further education. I chose Art purely because it was something I enjoyed rather than something I intend to study at university. I’d definitely recommend choosing subjects you enjoy, or you won’t enjoy your sixth form experience! But also think about what you’d like to do in the future so your subject choices will help you get onto these courses at university.
FREYA HARRAD | RELIGIOUS STUDIES STUDENT
I choose this subject as the philosophy and ethics elements of the course interested me greatly. What I like about studying RS is that everyone single lesson makes you think about and consider new viewpoints that you had not considered before. For example, within our arguments for the existence of God topic, I began to question my own beliefs on whether God could exist or not. As well as that, every lesson has a different format so there is a nice mix of debates and presentations as well as more independent tasks. Next year, I am hoping to study Philosophy at university as my RS lessons have sparked an interest in the deeper philosophical questions surrounding the world that we live in.
NIAMH WEBB | HISTORY
I chose History because I love the modules that were offered, particularly the coursework and British history but I enjoy the complexity of the Russian topic. In terms of Britain and Russia, I have enjoyed learning about the continuity and change element of British politics and learning about the tumultuous events in Russia in the early 20th century. I have certainly developed my analytical skills because of the source and interpretation work that History offers and also my essay writing skills using the PEACE format. Next year, I am hoping to study History and English Literature at the University of Birmingham and the do a PGCE to become a History teacher. I am so grateful to all of the staff in the History department at CWLC for being so supportive and approachable during the course so far.
