Welcome to the Life Programme which runs for Year 12 at Alcester Grammar School every fortnight on a Tuesday morning. Please read the above ‘About’ page to get a full flavour of what the Life programme is all about.
The idea of this blog is to share real life experiences and information that is relevant to your life at Alcester Grammar School but also your dreams and aspirations for the future.
Please sign up to follow the blog, or get email updates when there is a new entry, so that you don’t miss out on really important information. In particular, the articles from professionals in many different fields will give a rare insight into the realities of working in the real world and also how the journey from here to success is very rarely a linear road but twists and turns and takes you in many different directions before you reach your dream career.
It is important to remember to enjoy each part of this journey and that may be when you want to build up strategies for resilience and happiness, which will also feature regularly. Remember being in Sixth form is the beginning of that journey with many decisions to make but also to enjoy the many opportunities that Alcester Grammar School will give you in that two years.
We will also feature articles from students who have had an interesting work experience placement or from ex students who have completed gap years with advice and tips from them. If you know of anybody who would like to contribute, I would be very grateful if you could send me their details, particularly parents who are willing to share their career experiences.
I hope you enjoy the blog and make it your space. Please encourage your parents and friends to follow the blog.
I hope you have a great second week in year 12 and remember the first session where we said, it is completely normal to feel a little overwhelmed at this stage.
