Year 12 students must be on site from 8.25am every day. They must remain on site for periods 1, 2 & 3 every day even if they do not have lessons.
Students with Independent Study periods during this are to report to the sixth form study room – sessions will be supervised and registered.
Each week Year 13 have two additional study periods in their timetable. These are compulsory sessions and you must bring work to complete during these sessions. Year 13 students are able to use the Garratt, study room, Sixth Form Snug, library and free classrooms in the sixth form house for private study.
Private Study is silent, supervised study in the Sixth Form Study Area or the Learning Resource Centre that is pre-allocated on your timetable. Outside of school we expect you to complete 16 hours of independent work or 1 hour for every lesson taught in school. Students may use the Sixth Form Study Centre or Learning Resource Centre beyond 3.30pm, but no later than 5pm as long as a member of staff is present in the Sixth Form/Learning Resource Centre.
The Sixth Form Team will convey information such as examination dates, school trips etc. to students via the following:
-Email correspondence. Students are responsible for checking their email on a daily basis. Students will be issued with a school email address and are expected to use this
-Regular assemblies and tutor time
-Noticeboards and the Google Classroom notices
-Letters to parents/carers
-SMS – text messages to Parents/Carers
The school website also has up-to-date information regarding important dates throughout the academic year.
