NEW students at the Moorlands Sixth Form College in Cheadle get to know each other through a number of problem solving and team building tasks.
The 190 new students have come from a variety of different schools including Blythe Bridge, Painsley Catholic College, Moorside High School, Abbots Holme, The Cheadle Academy and Saint Peters.
Steve Richman, Director, stated how important it is to integrate everyone from day one.
He said: "We are very clear that all our students are treated equally and enjoy the same high quality education no matter where they originated from.
"We want our students to feel happy and settled in their new environment so they can flourish academically."
On Tuesday evening, parents of the new intake were addressed by Mr Richman, his Deputy Clare Dodson and Head of Year 12 Mrs Kate Phillips.
Over a glass of wine the expectations of the college and the secrets of their outstanding success with the recent examination results were outlined.
Although virtually full to capacity, Mr Richman indicated that there are a few places available for students who may not have settled into their original choice of college or school sixth form.
He suggested that anyone in this position should contact the college to discuss how they may be able to help you.
