JOINING INSTRUCTIONS FOR YEAR 12 (SIXTH FORM) - September 2014
Year 12 Meeting: Monday 1st September 2014 (9.15 am) Refreshments will be available in the Sixth Form Centre from 9.00am onwards. Please ensure you are in school by 9.15am, when the meeting will start in the Music Recital Room. You will have the opportunity to confirm your subject option choices with the Director of Studies, Dr Andrew Wood, so please ensure you have discussed any planned changes with parents and, if necessary, with members of staff via email, before this meeting. In addition, you will complete an ALIS (A Level Information Systems) baseline skills test which lasts for an hour. The session should end by 12.30, but if you plan to change options, it may take you longer to confirm these changes.
As this meeting marks the start of the Sixth Form programme, we are asking everyone to wear a full business suit (including a Sixth Form tie available from the School Shop or John Lewis) in line with the Sixth Form dress code. If you do not have the opportunity to acquire a tie before Monday, there will be ties available on the morning.
Start of Term: Wednesday 3rd September 2014 (8.45 am) The programme for the first day will be distributed to you at Monday’s meeting, but be prepared to bring your Games kit for the afternoon games lessons – please check the School website for the appropriate kit. If you are uncertain which games activity you will be involved in, please ask on Monday morning.
Speech Day: Thursday 4th September 2014 at the Royal Concert Hall (6.45 pm for 7.00 pm start).
Speech Day replaces afternoon school on September 4th, so lessons finish at 12.40 pm, but the school buses will not leave until 4.00 pm. You are welcome to remain in the Sixth Form Centre in the afternoon – the Library will also be open. All Year 12s are expected to attend Speech Day in full School Uniform, acting as role models to the younger pupils.
