10th May to 10th June: Year 12 Study Leave
All students have been given an individual exam timetable, detailing time and location of the exam. All revision information will be uploaded to Show My Homework.
10th June to 19th July
When Y12 students return from study leave they will begin a full A Level timetable. I strongly recommend that students continue with all of their subjects until they receive their AS results in August. Non attendance during June and July will preclude progression from AS to A Level.
10th June to 19th July: Preparation for Post-18 Destinations
When students return from study leave, registration will focus entirely upon preparation for post-18 destinations. In addition, all students will be off timetable on 11th July for a day dedicated to post-18 destinations and preparation for making an application to University or elsewhere.
However, given the importance of the academic timetable during this period I would strongly urge that students avoid attending university open days during the school week where possible.
If students would like to attend an open day they should ensure that they complete a blue authorised absence form before the event which must be handed in to Ms Mitchell.
Tuesday 11th June 6-9pm: Higher Education and Competitive Admissions Evening
The event will cover post-18 options, the UCAS application process and student finance. Many Universities will be represented and parents and students will have a chance to attend talks on different aspects of Higher Education. We will have a mini Higher Education fayre, attended by a variety of Universities.
We will also be welcoming representatives from:
- Oxford and Cambridge Schools Liaison Team
- Northumbria University, speaking on Student Finance
- Sheffield Hallam University
- Medical Admissions for the University of Manchester
- Charles Clifford Dental Hospital/University of Sheffield
Friday 21st June: The UCAS Higher Education Convention
Further information will be sent out regarding this event to be held at Motorpoint Arena.
Thursday 11th July: Destinations Day
While the rest of the school has Sports Day, in Sixth Form we provide a day dedicated to destinations post-18. All students are expected to attend and we have a variety of speakers and workshops taking part throughout the day, providing information about writing a personal statement, student finance, the application process and alternatives to university, including apprenticeships and employment, budgeting for life and CV writing. Several local universities will also be attending to represent a variety of subject areas.
