Sixth Form Power to Perform

When students start A levels in Sixth Form for many of them it is a big jump from the way they studied previously. Students are expected to be much more independent in their learning and be able to use their time outside of the classroom productively, both in non-contact lessons and at home. Ultimately, students who have the greatest success are focussed, independent learners. It is also the case that support from parents can make a real difference in Sixth Form.

I would like to invite Parents and Carers to our Power to Perform presentation on:

Wednesday 8th September

6pm for Year 12 Parents / Carers

7pm for Year 13 Parents / Carers

Both sessions are in the well ventilated Hive Sixth Form Centre.

Please complete this form to reserve your seat -

The purpose of the session is to provide you with information and guidance about:

  • Rhythm of the year and bridging the gaps
  • Learning and life
  • How you can support your child

I would also like to take this opportunity to share a series of helpful links to websites that you will find useful in the coming weeks and months from UCAS applications, to student finance post 18. Although these are timely for Year 13 parents, it is never too early to think about next steps.

I hope that you find the presentation useful and I am looking forward to meeting you in person.  However, if you cannot attend the presentation I will send out a digital version following the event.

As ever, if you have questions or would like to discuss any aspect in more detail please do not hesitate to contact your child's tutor, Mrs Weston (Head of Year) or myself.

Kind regards,

Mrs K Challinor

Assistant Headteacher

Head of Sixth Form
