As an Academy the College has greater autonomy in decision making but also greater accountability for the consequences of such decisions. For further information please read the documents below. Nominations must be received at College by 12 noon on Wednesday 5 October 2016.
HVC students learn about Oxbridge
Anita Magee, from Emmanuel College, Cambridge spoke to Hope Valley College students today (Tuesday 13 September), about going to university and Oxford and Cambridge Universities (Oxbridge) in particular.
Principal David Willis said: "We are thrilled and very grateful that Anita is able to visit us to speak with our students. It is important that our young people know well before they even start their A' levels at Post 16 schools and Colleges, what is required from them at GCSE and what preparation they need to consider. We want Hope Valley College students to be aspirational and have broad horizons."
Anita Magee, Schools Liaison Officer for Emannuel College, Cambridge, spoke to thirty Year 11 students specifically about Oxbridge applications. She also spoke to all Year 10 students not only about going to university but also about what is required to go to a top Russell Group university.
Anita will return to Hope Valley College in November where we hope to provide a further information session for students and their parents.
