Why Choose HCS Sixth Form?

Hull Collegiate School provided me with opportunities for teamwork and leadership. These were developed throughout my time in the sports teams, in my role as deputy head girl and through Duke of Edinburgh and other extra-curricular activities. Volunteering opportunities such as visiting Ganton special needs school and mentoring younger pupils in maths improved my communication skills. All these qualities have helped me get an optimum start in university life. The variety of activities and strong pupil-teacher relationships encouraged a good work ethic. In combination with the work ethic was the friendly atmosphere, which made my  studies during GCSEs and A levels more manageable.

My time spent at Hull Collegiate greatly shaped my attitude towards learning. I developed a determination to work hard and succeed which prepared me very well for five years of intense study at medical school. Throughout my time at Collegiate I grew into a confident young adult which I believe has aided my professional conduct within the healthcare environment. I greatly appreciate all of the support provided by dedicated staff over the years.

I cannot express how grateful I am to have attended Hull Collegiate School. The school allowed me to thrive in my academic work due to the warm atmosphere and dedicated teachers who guided me through my studies. I was also grateful to play key roles in various sports teams during my time at the school which let me build skills I would not gain elsewhere. I cannot forget the invaluable once in a lifetime opportunities that the school provided for me, from being Head Boy, to volunteering in Uganda and working with the Safi Coffee team. I will always remember my time at school with fond memories, and I cannot thank the staff and school enough.

Hull Collegiate school provided a wonderfully supportive atmosphere in which I developed lasting friendships and discovered my passion for the subjects I now study at university. Both the high standard of teaching and friendliness of staff and pupils were integral parts of the experience. During my last few years in sixth form I enjoyed the greater independence and the support my teachers provided when studying more advanced subjects, all of which set me up brilliantly for further study at university.

My experience at Hull Collegiate School has made a massive impact on my education and my life. Throughout my 7 years there, I was constantly supported, challenged and pushed to be the best I could be by all of my teachers. As I progressed into Sixth Form, I was given the independence to prepare me for life after school, which has helped me immensely both at university and on my placement with PricewaterhouseCoopers. I am very proud to be a Collegian and know I will always be welcome for any advice or support I may need in the future.
