Sixth Form Open Evening – Thursday, 18th 2018 6.00pm to 8.00pm
During the next few months Year 11 students will start to consider their future career options and will be making choices about their education after Year 11. We would like to assure you that we will be supporting your child throughout this process by providing relevant information, advice and guidance.
Our Sixth Form Open Evening is a very important part of the post-16 decision process and allows you and your child to consider the range of subject options on offer in the Sixth Form, as well as providing an opportunity for you to discuss your child’s suitability for these courses.
Many students choose to continue their education at Mascalls Academy and may already feel confident about their decisions, but it is important that Year 11 students attend this event, even if they seem sure about their next step, as there may be other routes they are yet to consider.
In addition to the subjects that have been offered at GCSE, there are additional courses available in Sixth Form which students might like to find out about, such as Psychology, Sociology, Performing Arts, Business, Media and Film Studies. There are also a number of vocational options available. Departments will have printed information sheets about each subject – the syllabus and how it is assessed, in order to help you and your child to make an informed choice.
The evening will commence at 6.00pm in A-Hall with short presentations from both our Principal, Mr Barnett and from me, giving details of the application process and other aspects of Sixth Form life.
You will then be able to visit the academic departments with your child to talk directly with the Teachers about the subject that your child may be interested in studying at Sixth Form level, to help you in your decision making.
We would expect the evening to end no later than 8.00pm.
There is no need to confirm your attendance at this event, however if you are planning to be there, could you please ensure you arrive in time to be seated in A-Hall by 5.55pm as the presentations will begin promptly at 6.00pm.
We look forward to seeing you there.
