Sixth form initiative

11th October 1996 at 01:00
Schools in the High Wycombe area of Buckinghamshire are jointly organising a modern languages conference for sixth form language students about university courses and job opportunities. Students from other schools in the area are welcome. It will be held on December 4 at the Lancaster Arts Centre, Wycombe Abbey School.

A talk is planned on "Which course, What then?" by Ann King, education consultant, and "taster" sessions include: linguistics; introduction to Arabic; German at university; Spanish and Latin-American studies; Oriental and African studies; languages at Cambridge; and languages for business. A "market" will include stands staffed by local businesses, the Central Bureau for Educational Visits and Exchanges, and translators and interpreters. The participating schools are the Royal Grammar, Wycombe High, John Hampden Grammar, Sir William Borlase's Grammar and Wycombe Abbey. Details: Mrs W D Woo, head of modern languages, Wycombe Abbey School, tel: 01494 520381.
