📖My Sixth Form Story - By Manav, J

Meet Manav, a Year 13 Westgate Sixth Form star with who is currently studying Business, Psychology and History

From school projects to unforgettable moments, dive into his inspiring journey as he shares the incredible experiences and stories that have shaped his Sixth Form years so far.


Here is his story:
“Hi, my name is Manav. I have been a student at the Westgate School since 2017 and now in Year 13. I study Business, Psychology and History, and have thoroughly enjoyed my classes in sixth form.

There have been numerous memories here at Westgate, but some of my biggest highlights are the history trips we did to the Churchill war museum at the end of Year 12. Adding to my existing historical knowledge of Churchill, this trip allowed me to gain insight on Britain’s war time government under Churchill’s leadership. Another highlight at Sixth Form is the yearly trip to Thorpe Park, which is an enjoyable and thrilling experience, and also a nice break from a stressful term. To add to this, the school trip to Royal Holloway allowed me to explore different courses to help me choose my options come post 18. Most recently I received a star of the month in Psychology, which has given me a sense of pride and motivation of the work I have done and the upcoming work that will lead to my summer A-level examination.

Aside from these memories, I have continuous support from the amazing Sixth Form staff. During times when I feel I’m in need of emotional support due to stress, I know that I can turn to the Sixth Form staff, specifically my Head of Year and Head of Sixth Form. This additional support from the team has prepared me to deal with stressful situations effectively, especially since the jump from GCSE to A-levels was academically difficult, however the staff have remained helpful and incredibly considerate throughout.

My time here at the Westgate School has been enjoyable, I have learnt key skills that will help me as I proceed into the next chapter of my life, as I aspire to go to University and further my studies in Business Management.” ~ Manav, J
