Barnsley Sixth Form College welcomes Ecclesfield pupils

Barnsley Sixth Form College welcomed Year 11 pupils from Ecclesfield School for a GCSE revision conference.

The conference gave the pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of workshops and activities to prepare them for their forthcoming GCSE examinations.

Barnsley Sixth Form College Principal Liz Leek addressed the pupils before they engaged in workshops on English, maths, science and revising for success.

The day included tours of the facilities at the new £18m Sixth Form College, opened in January, which were led by current A Level students who previously attended Ecclesfield School.

Liz Leek said: “It was wonderful to have Ecclesfield School in our fabulous new building. The pupils worked really hard and I know that they will be highly successful. I look forward to welcoming them as A level students in September.”

Andy James, Assistant Headteacher at Ecclesfield School, added: “Our revision conference for high attaining students was set in the perfect location. The Barnsley Sixth Form College building and the facilities were very impressive.

“Our GCSE students undertook workshops in an aspirational learning environment. We were warmly welcomed and the day was well organised. I would like to thank Barnsley Sixth Form College for providing a learning atmosphere that will help to give our students the self-belief to succeed in their final exams.”
