Car­men — A Lev­els (His­to­ry, Media Stud­ies, Photography)

Carmen 1

I felt free to be cre­ative and learn inde­pen­dent­ly but my teach­ers kept me focussed and on track. 

Car­men — A Levels — 

Car­men plans to go into teach­ing in the future, and is going to study Pri­ma­ry Edu­ca­tion at Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty after tak­ing a gap year.

How does High Pavement Sixth Form compare to school?

For me, it’s very dif­fer­ent from a school envi­ron­ment. There is lots of inde­pen­dent learn­ing which is great, and it helped me to fig­ure out who I am as a person.

High Pave­ment sparked my inter­est in learn­ing again and made me excit­ed about achiev­ing and suc­ceed­ing. The loca­tion is great for me too.”

What are the staff like?

My teach­ers were all real­ly amaz­ing. They were clear about my goals and pushed me to do my best.

There’s that feel­ing of mutu­al respect between the teach­ers and stu­dents and I think that brought out the best in me. 

There’s a real­ly good bal­ance between inde­pen­dent learn­ing and sup­port. I felt free to be cre­ative and learn inde­pen­dent­ly but my teach­ers kept me focussed and on track.”

What is it about teaching that attracted you?

I love the idea of teach­ing, espe­cial­ly pri­ma­ry school-aged chil­dren, as they are so curious.

I want to be like the teach­ers I’ve been describ­ing at High Pave­ment — by help­ing to inspire them so that they can reach their full potential.”
