By Jill Dando News

More teenagers from across the world have joined one of Britain’s best school-based Sixth Forms.

Left to Right, Vanessa from Hamburg, Germany, Adela from Prague in the Czech Republic, and Sara and Vivianna from Italy have joined The King Alfred School Academy Sixth Form in Highbridge, Somerset.

The students are already enjoying the best of British cuisine – Sunday Roast and Shepherds Pie, with Fish and Chips to come.

They are part of a huge increase in student numbers in the Sixth Form provision over the last few years. 

The Sixth Form enjoys excellent results, inspirational teaching and a school-style community atmosphere.

Head of Sixth Form Jonathan Gaskell said: “The students are living with host families and are already loving the best of British cuisine – Sunday roast and shepherd’s pie being their favourites so far. They’ve put an order in for Fish Friday this week when Year 12 students visit a local fish and chip shop!

“The students have settled in well and can’t believe how friendly our Year 12 students are. 

“We are delighted to have them and our Year 12 students are loving making new friends and learning about other European cultures and languages.”  

The academy is part of The Priory Learning Trust and is attracting students from schools in Weston-super-Mare including Priory Community School Academy, Worle Community School Academy, as well as Bridgwater. 

TKASA Sixth Form Open Evening, for all Year 11 students wishing to join the wonderful post 16 provision, is on Thursday 30th September from 6pm.

All Year 11 students and their parents/carers are welcome to attend.

There will also be an Open Morning on Saturday 9th October.
