Experience at 6th form induction day

Hello everyone,

I did a poll on Instagram on whether you guys would like this post and majority said yes. I went to two different 6th forms for induction and they were completely different experiences.

I thought I’d give you all some background information. I planned on going to both 6th forms I’ve chosen because of the subjects I wanted to take. 2 out of the 3 will be in my school the last one would be in another 6th form part of the trust. However, all my thoughts changed. I chose English Literature, Graphics and Sociology.

Induction outside of secondary school

This was the first induction I went to out of the two. The 6th form has a good reputation so I had a high expectation for it to be a nice day. As I’m only going to do one subject there (if I get the grade) which is English. But, the school is laid out in such a strange way because it was made up of houses and it was super confusing. I just didn’t get a good vibe there from the teachers that were walking around and who was supposed to help us around. Also, the class I attended wasn’t how I expected it to be presented. It was all over the place and the teacher didn’t even explain any of the homework she gave us and I didn’t like her style of teaching.


Induction in my secondary school

I already had an idea of how the 6th form in my school will be like but I’ve chosen a subject I have never done before (Sociology) and it gave me a great insight on what to expect for this A-Level. Also, this teacher has never taught, the year group I’m in, before but she had a different vibe than the English teacher. Graphics was no surprise to me because I will be having the same teacher that I had for GCSE Graphic Products. However, they also timetabled us to try out the subject we chose for reserve and I’m leaning towards that more because I’m now unsure about English.

But, I talked to the head of 6th form and it’s all going to be sorted out on results day. There would be no point in any changes now because it is all dependant on the grades I get in August.


Overall, I do recommend you guys to attend induction days because you may change your mind. It is especially important not to miss it if you are going to a different 6th form to your school.

    This is such a good post and message Najida! I don’t think it’s easily recognised the jump sixth form is because it’s a weird two years (but very important!). And with it being so important I think it’s crucial to go somewhere you are really happy with and equally so with the courses you are doing! Never worry about feeling the need to change. The happiest and best life is about following what your heart desires and your hobbies. Your career will follow and it will never feel like you work a day in your life (well hopefully and with the exception of some poo days because that’s only life!). But not poo days more than good days because it should be your hobby/ passion and thing you love to do! 😀
