A day in the life

A Day in the life…

  • All year 12 students study 4 option choices

  • Year 12 students will have 5 study periods a week (maybe more if they attend Twilight lessons)

  • Year 12 students remain in school during study periods. They should sign in with Miss Roden in the 6th form centre

  • All students have tutor in the afternoon (no morning registration)

  • Dress is smart/casual except Fridays which is ‘Super Smart Friday’

  • Attend all lessons- please collect work and inform teachers of known absences

  • Complete work in their own time- suggested 2-3 hours most week day evening


Option choices

Option Choices

  • Students have selected their preferred subject choices

  • If anyone is struggling with a subject or is thinking about a change, now is the time to do it.

  • Most students will drop one subject when they move into A2, providing more time to get better grades in the other 3

  • 4 subjects are needed in yr 12 in order to ensure that they have the best 3 for yr 13 and gain more UCAS points


Skills plus

‘Skills Plus’

  • 1 lesson a week

  • Students have chosen to study one of the following:

  • - Asdan level 3 CoPE Award

  • - BTEC Certificate in Dance

  • - Free Standing Maths Qualification

  • -Extended Project Qualification

  • -Arts Award Gold

  • Students gain valuable experience in applying their skills and gain up to 70 UCAS points

4 Stages of Support/intervention

  • Contracts will be issued tonight with a £30 deposit

  • Names will be taken for those who would like to be placed on a waiting list for returns of netbooks from other students as the year progresses

  • Please look after them- buy a cover/bag and keep it safe!
