Important Dates for New Year 12 Students
05 Sep 2016
I am pleased to welcome your son/daughter into Ashby School Sixth Form and sincerely hope they are settling in well and that they are enjoying their studies.
I wish to inform you of two important events taking place in the near future.
15 September – Year 12 Parents' Information Evening - Year 12 parents are invited to an Information Evening which will provide you with details about procedures, opportunities and examinations in Year 12. This will start at 7pm and take place in the Lecture Theatre. For those unable to attend, a copy of the presentation will be made available on the school website. It will be of particular interest to those parents of students who are new to the school.
Week beginning 19 September – During this week, we will conduct an interview with every Year 12 student. This important interview will be with an experienced member of staff and will provide your son/daughter with an opportunity to review the option courses they have selected this academic year, and address any problems/issues they wish to raise. Students will be advised of the time, place and interviewer’s name prior to 19 September.
Your son/daughter will be given an opportunity to review and confirm their choices at this meeting and we ask them to inform you of any negotiated changes. This finalised timetable forms the basis upon which examination entries will be made.
I look forward to meeting you on 15 September at the Information Evening. In the meantime, most questions can be answered by consulting the Sixth Form Information Guide which has been distributed to your son/daughter and is also available on the school website. Alternatively, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the Sixth Form team if you have any other immediate concerns.
Miss. M. Hawksworth
Director of Post-16 Studies
