SIXTH FORM

FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM

We are now into the crucial stages of preparation for our students for their final AS and A2 level examinations and the BTEC level 3 diploma. GCE written exams begin on 11 May which leaves only 18 teaching days before Year 12 commence their study leave on Thursday 7 May. Please note that even when study leave has begun teachers will be available at all the usual lesson times if students wish to come into school to revise.

HIGHER EDUCATION DAY FOR YEAR 12

Judging by the bags full of information that the students brought back this was a very successful event! In fact many students found it very useful as they discovered courses and universities that inspired them, or learned more about courses they had already identified. Of particular importance to some was to learn the grades needed for their first choice of course so that they can set their sights and work hard towards them.
