This is the date that new year 12 students will join Mascalls Academy Sixth Form.
There will not be any subject lessons on the first day; instead we have arranged a number of team building activities for students to take part in, as well as sessions aimed at getting to know their Student Advisor, and meeting other students.
The day will begin at 08:30 in the Sixth Form Common Room, where Student Advisors will meet their groups and take them off to their individual Advisory rooms to brief them on the schedule of activities for the day. Students will receive their lesson timetables during that first session.
As a Mascalls Academy student you are required to observe the published dress code. However, on Enrolment Day (only) you are requested to wear clothing that is suitable for physical activity, which includes track suits, sports leggings and trainers, since the activities you will be engaged in will require you to move around and will incorporate some light exercise.
If you were set work to complete over the summer vacation period – which you would have received either as a result of attending our Induction Days in July, or by email if you had informed us that you couldn’t attend those days – then you should bring that completed work with you on 2nd September so that it can be submitted for marking.
Please also bring some money with you for lunch, if you intend to purchase it from the Sixth Form canteen, as per the information below.
The canteen in the Sixth Form Common Room, which is managed and operated by our caterers, Cucina, will be open for breakfast, as well as at break and lunch times for hot and cold drinks and snacks. If you prefer to bring your own packed lunch with you, you are welcome to do this but please be aware that there is no facility to heat up food brought in from home.
The Sixth Form canteen takes cash payments at any time, but if you wish to use the school’s cashless system, this is also possible. If you are new to Mascalls Academy, your Scopay account will need to be set up and a fingerprint reading taken before you can use the cashless process. This can be done on your first day.
If you applied for your Travel Card by the 12th July application deadline as specified by Kent County Council, then your Travel Card should have been sent to the school prior to 2nd September so that you can collect it from the Sixth Form office on that day. If you submitted your application later than 12th July then your card may not be ready for you to pick up, but please check with our Sixth Form Support Assistant anyway, just in case it has been received. You will need to sign for the card to confirm that you have collected it.
The day will end at the usual 15:00 school finishing time.
