SIXTH FORM

FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM

Dear Parents,


We have been very pleased with the way students, old and new, have settled into Sixth Form life.


Year 12 have clearly benefitted from the Study Skills workshops they attended on Wednesday, as they have made an impressive start to their AS and BTEC studies. They have grasped our mission statement to 'Aim high, believe in yourself and make a difference' already.


Over the next week Mr Giles will be sitting down with each Year 13 student to review their summer grades and set plans for the coming academic year. Please make a note of the forthcoming Parents' Evenings in your diary.


Best wishes

Andy Giles

Students who heard her speak previously were inspired, and some have gone on to study forensic psychology at university. This talk is a 'must' for all psychology students and those considering medicine as a career. All students are welcome to HM4 for 3.30 - 4.15pm next Tuesday.

Ms Lamagna would like to inform all students that Debating Club will resume next week on Tuesday lunchtime at 1.35 pm, and Psychology Club on Thursday, also at 1.35 pm. Both will be held in HM1.
