A Day in the Life : Year 12

A Day in the Life : Year 12


Our students will benefit from a longer working day (8.30am-5.00pm) and slightly longer school year.

A typical day might involve:

Year 12

8.10am: I arrive and have a drink with some friends in the café area.
8:30am: I have a profile team meeting his morning. This is where we work on the seven key attributes that we will need to become successful engineers. This week I want to plan my visit to Siemens. I'm working the 'enquiry and analyses' section of my Record of Academic and Personal Growth (RAPG) so I need to make sure I have some good questions to ask.
9:40am: Physics 'A' Level lesson in the practical lab. This is an opportunity to test the theory that we have learnt about Stress and Strain. These studies relate directly to units of the Mechatronics course that I am also studying in Engineering.
10:50am: I am meeting with Lisa and Tahir in the Library at break to share results from our practical session. I'm going to need these for the Independent Study session.
11:10am: We are set work for Independent Study sessions for all of our subjects. I have work set for the next Mathematics lesson that will prepare me for the work we will cover in the next lesson. It is great to have the Library as an area that we can use to do this work.
12:20pm: Lunch. Catch up with friends and eat in the café.
13:05pm: We are in the Design & Media suite for a session on the CAD machines. My design is coming on well and I will be ready to move on to the manufacturing later. I will be using what I learnt this morning to produce a prototype on the 3D printer.
15:25pm: Muster break. We meet with teachers, tutors and employers in this break to discuss progress with various aspects of our progress. I have a video conference booked with a contact from the University.
15:50pm: The final hour today is enrichment. We have a choice of what we can do including sport, photography, art, extra languages and media club to mention a few. There are leadership and community opportunities, which will really develop my CV.

I will be continuing with my quadcopter design and build. We are testing components to see if they improve the performance of the quadcopters.
17:00pm: Finish. Another great day. I'm really looking forward to my visit to Siemens tomorrow.
