Sixth Form

NEW TIMETABLE - starting Monday 15 Nov

As promised, we have a new timetable staring Monday 15 Nov.

You need to check your new timetable in EduLink to see where & when you will have your lessons - you should have 3 hours per subject for each IB lesson, 5 hours for each BTEC, RSL, or LIFB lessons.

Learning conversations will be changing and a member for the sixth form team will be in contact with you to arrange when your meetings will take place.


Y13 Destinations - application time

All Y13 students should now be appling for University (undergraduate courses), or Apprenticeships. You should be writing your personal statements/covering letters using the Monday p5 support. Apprenticeship applications will need an up to date CV.

Reminder: Fire Alarm Procedures

To follow procedures across the rest of the school, fire alarm procedures for Sixth Form have changed.

In the event of a fire alarm, all Sixth Form students need to line up with their Learning Coach silently. As all students have a timetabled Learning Conversation, you should all know who this is. If not, refer to your timetable.


Attendance

All students attendance should be at least 95%. Well done to all those who have kept it at 100% for Term 1.

Remember, both Learning Conversations and Community Hour are both part of your attendance figure.

Advance warning: Any students with a worryingly low attendance figure will be put on a attendance contract, as a first step...


Christmas Trip

We are doing a Sixth Form trip to Birmingham Christmas Market on Friday 10 December 2021.

Anyone interested in going needs to get a letter from Ms Setters.

Reminder: Charging Laptops and Phones

As you know, there are not enough plug points in the zone or classrooms for you to all plug in your laptops. You must remember to charge your laptop each night before school. Anyone charging your phone from your laptop will be unnecessarily draining your battery so please do not do this!


Reminder: Swipe cards

You should all by now have received your swipe card and lanyard. If not, please see Ms Setters asap who will be able to help you.

Remember, you should be visibly wearing your swipe cards and swiping in and out.


Reminder: Uniform

You're looking very smart and sharp! Remember, headphones and earpods should be away before you enter the school building

Lesson Timings:

Break & Lunch: Sixth form students are allowed access to the reception cafe and bridge during break and lunch. However, these must be kept clean to continue access.

Free Lessons: Students are not required to be on site when you do not have lessons, however you can use the study areas in Zone 6, to work independently. If going off site, please remember to swipe in and out.
