Here at North Liverpool Academy Sixth Form, we aim to prepare our students as best we can for what might come after Sixth Form. Whether this be by equipping them with the work-place skills to get a full-time job, helping them achieve a vocational qualification to get an apprenticeship, or push them to achieve the highest academic grades to ensure they gain a place at University.
Over previous years we’ve had students graduate from our Sixth Form and move onto some pretty exciting destinations. Take a look over some of our previous students testimonials below:
Elli is currently studying Early Childhood and Youth at Liverpool Hope University.
“North Liverpool Academy Sixth Form really helped me with everything that I needed. Whether it was to do with UCAS or even just in my subject studies, there was always someone that I could rely on to support me, getting me to a brilliant university on a course that I love.”
Amy is studying Early Years Education with QTS at Edge Hill University.
“Before my real interview, Miss Lowther and Anya prepared me by conducting a mock interview. During the mock interview, they asked me questions I may be asked for real. This helped me to prepare answers and they helped improve them. This made me more confident when attending my interview.
They also gave me their advice about the course and gave me alternative routes to the career I would like to do. They also gave me online resource to help me prepare for the knowledge and written exams I had to take.”
Stephen is currently studying Biology at Liverpool John Moores University.
“I first came to the North Liverpool Academy in 2008 and attended the NLA for my GCSE’s and A-levels. In sixth form, I studied biology, chemistry, English language and performing arts. I loved every minutes of every subject. I believe in all four of my subjects I learnt the skills and qualities that I will use everyday at university and for the duration of my career.
I am currently studying biology at Liverpool John Moores University.
I think applying for university and for student finance is a long and stressful process, I found having the NLA mentors on hand to help students understand what the application forms mean and how to provide the correct information. I believe the most important part of the UCAS application is the personal statement, as you could imagine it’s also the most difficult. The point of your personal statement is to impress the university and to stand out from the crowd. The sixth mentors helped me to make my statement perfect.
Tip and advice I would offer to sixth formers now, is to visit the university you want to go to in September. You need to make sure that the university you put down on your application is the one you are going to love. Another top tip is to revise as much as possible because every hour of revision counts and in the end it’s all worth it. And MOST IMPORTANTLY ENJOY YOURSELF! Sixth form allows you to choice what you want to study, so pick the subjects you will enjoy.”
Isha is currently one of our Year 13 students and has gained a conditional offer to study Pharmacy at John Moores University.
“In order for me to prepare for my interview for the course of Pharmacy at Liverpool John Moores University, I had several practice interviews with the LRC staff, enabling me to be ready for the real interview and giving me an insight into what the real interview might be like.
As well as this, LRC staff helped me prepare for my test, by providing me with key information that I needed to be aware of. We also covered some general exam techniques; remaining calm, reading over answers etc.
With their great help I have managed to get a conditional offer from Liverpool John Moores University. The key for me now is to work hard and achieve the grades required to gain access to the course!”
