New Prospective 6th Form Taster Day: September 2018 Intake
Sixth Form Taster Day Programme: Tuesday 3rd July 2018
Thank you for accepting your offer of a place at Seven Kings Sixth Form for September 2018 and confirming you will be attending the Taster Day Programme. Following pupil feedback we have decided to change the Taster Day Programme to one full day only which will now be on Tuesday 3rd July. The dress code for the day is school uniform or smart business dress (you can get more information about our dress code policy on our website: /200/dress-code)
The Taster Day Programme enables all those students who will be joining the 6th Form in September 2018 to find out more about 6th Form life. It provides an opportunity to meet and socialise with other new students and meet current year 13 students. Previous students have found it very helpful in preparing for September and the start of their studies. Registration will open at 8.00am and close at 8.45am. In preparing for this day, we hope you also enjoy the newsletter from our newly appointed headship team where they share their experiences of year 12 and their highlights and successes! They have also shared their top tips that helped them in their GCSE’s.
In addition to giving you more information about life in the 6th Form, one of the main aims of the Taster Day Programme is to help you make final, informed decisions about courses and subjects you wish to pursue. To help with this, we run a number of 'subject taster' sessions, which are workshops on the different A-level subjects you have chosen. In these, A-level teachers will explain in detail what their subject entails, how it is assessed and what students will need to do to be successful. In the past, these sessions have helped students to make their final subject choices.
In the interim, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us and I look forward to seeing you at the Taster Day Programme. Full details of the taster days will be available on the school website (www.sevenkings.school) in the sixth form section closer to the date.
