The leadership team are a group of students who represent the school and student community and are a key link between students and teachers. Along with their official roles, each student also undertakes an individual project to initiate positive change across the school and in the wider community. Students work towards improving mental health provision, diversity, promoting the Sixth Form, running social events, speaking at school events, mentoring across the school and creating supportive links between the school and local community.
My name is Aaliyah and I’m studying Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics. My main area of interest is Astronomy and I hope to study Astrophysics at University next year. I’ve been a student at Ormiston Rivers Academy since year 7 and have loved my time here so I would recommend staying on for Sixth Form due to the supportive environment and high teaching standards.
I’ve been a student at Ormiston Rivers Academy since September 2016 and have enjoyed every single moment of my secondary school life. With passionate teachers; a wide array of subjects and remarkable students around me, my academic career has been exceptional. This convinced me to carry on my studies further at Rivers Sixth Form, which has proved to be just as great. I currently study Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Further Mathematics, with the hopes of going to university to study Veterinary Medicine, to bring together my love for animals and passion for science.
I’m currently studying Biology, Chemistry and English Literature with hopes to study Zoology or Wildlife Sciences at University next year. My time here so far at Rivers Sixth Form has helped guide me to achieve my best and support me through my next steps. With amazing co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities, alongside the supportive staff team has helped build my aspiration towards my future and I have truly enjoyed my time here.
My confidence has grown over the last 6 years at Ormiston Rivers Acacemy and I’ve gained valuable life skills as well as made huge progress in my academic abilities. I chose to study A Levels at Rivers Sixth Form because they offered the courses that suited me and my plans for the future, as well as providing a fantastic learning environment and wonderful teachers that I have helped me throughout this year. My first year has been challenging, but I love learning and being able to choose subjects I have an active interest in and will relate to later life. I am currently studying Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics, and I have completed my EPQ qualification earlier this year. I will be applying to University to study Biology, as well as considering Degree Apprenticeships in the Scientific field or Finance.
I chose Rivers Sixth Form as I was interested in Performing Arts, Music, Health and Social Care and English. I instantly felt extremely welcomed by the teachers and students. Choosing these subjects has helped guide me towards potentially becoming a Speech and Language Therapist either via University or a degree Apprenticeship. The Sixth Form team has helped me to decide what route I may want to take at the end of year 13. My first year in Sixth Form was filled with new experiences and challenges. Everyone was friendly and welcoming which made my first year less stressful as I was moving here from another school. All of the subject teachers and Sixth Form team were extremely helpful and always willing to help where they could, as well as making every student feel part of the Sixth Form. There are many extra-curricular clubs and sessions that everyone can attend that are helpful to enable everyone to have something other than their subjects and a good opportunity to meet new people with the same interests.
I joined Rivers Sixth Form in year 12 from another external school. I chose to study at this Academy because it offers a wide variety of subjects and courses compared to many other schools in the area. For my A levels I chose to study: Engineering, Music Technology, Physics, and Core Mathematics. I enjoy all the subjects I study, especially because the school gives me such a wide variety of choice. I also enjoy the challenges they create that help me grow in knowledge and in learning. In addition, Rivers Sixth Form has fantastic resources and learning spaces that we are given to help us with our subjects and study time. As a part of the leadership team, I want to make sure everyone feels included in the school and experience all the opportunities the Academy has to offer as well as working together and aspiring to achieve.
