Letter to Sixth Form Parents - End of Half Term

As we approach the spring half-term, I wanted to contact you in regard to some upcoming events after half term. Firstly, I would like to congratulate our 6th Form students who continue to work hard to reach their potential. For Year 13, the end is in sight and these next three months will be particularly significant as they prepare for their final examinations in the summer. For Year 12, these next few months will see them begin thinking about their next steps after 6th Form and there are some exciting events happening to support this.

February Half-Term Intervention

We will be running intervention over the half-term break for Year 13 for the following subjects: Sports Studies and Chemistry on Monday, 13th February and Business Studies and Media on Tuesday, 14th February. Details of timings will be shared with students by their teacher and by email. We are also running an intervention for Year 12 Business Studies on Wednesday, 15th February.

Year 13 PPEs

When we return on 20th February, Year 13 will begin their final round of Pre Public Examinations (PPEs). This will be their final opportunity to sit practice papers in examination conditions before their public exams begin. These exams will be for the academic subjects only, as the applied subjects have recently sat public examinations. An individual timetable has been sent home for each student, it is important that students attend every examination as there will not be the opportunity to re-sit or re-schedule.

Year 12 Aspire Afternoon

On Wednesday 22nd February, Year 12 students will take part in an ‘Aspire’ afternoon which will consist of information about Post 18 options, including a talk from Greenwich University.

UCAS Exhibition

Year 12 will also be attending the London UCAS Exhibition on Tuesday 28th March. This will be the first opportunity students will have to speak to universities across the country as well as apprenticeship and employment companies. More information about this trip will be shared nearer the time.

Lastly, I would like to remind you about our 6th Form expectations. The 6th Form dress code states that students are not allowed to wear any hoodies, trainers or denim of any kind. Students who arrive at school in the incorrect dress will be asked to return home to change. Also, 6th Form students are expected to be on school site from 8:40 am until 3:00 pm every day. This is to ensure that they are using their study time efficiently and are meeting their expected outcomes. Any absences or early departures should be given in advance.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support. I wish you all a restful half-term

Yours Faithfully,

Miss V Humphrey
