Sixth Form Life
A Level Options Evening Plans
As you know, we were hoping to hold our A Levels Options Evening after Year 11 completed their mock examinations this month. After much consideration we have decided to cancel an actual face-to face event, and we will be putting all the information from the evening on our website under the tab, ‘Sixth Form Life’.
Your daughter has already taken home a copy of our Options Booklet in November, discussed options in PSHE and we have held a series of subject talks in the lunch hour at the end of November.
As of 23rd January, there will be on the website:
An up-to-date Options Booklet, Prospectus and copy of Sixth Form Guidelines.
Links that will take you to the subject talks, given by the subject leaders.
A speech from the Head Prefect
A speech/power point from myself to cover the information that would have been provided during the event.
Once the mock examinations are over and the results collated, I will be meeting with each member of Year 11 to discuss their choices for the future. No student at Mayfield needs to apply to the school to join the Sixth Form. Each student has a conditional offer, as long as they achieve the grades needed for the subjects they have chosen. We see no point in asking a student to apply to join a school that they already belong to!
We are very sorry to cancel this important event but as cases continue to remain high, it seems the prudent course of action. If there is any further information you need, please do not hesitate to contact the relevant member of staff, who will be happy to help.
