Post 16 information

1. Year 11 Post 16 Evening 

This evening, which takes place on Monday 8th October at 6pm, is designed to inform parents about Post 16 routes and to provide both students and parents with an opportunity to talk to representatives of different 6th form institutions, as well as other Post 16 providers. There will also be information about Apprenticeships, and college staff will be on hand to field any questions. Laurie Simpson, our Independent Guidance Advisor, will be available should you wish to discuss your child’s transition to post 16.

Starting at 6pm there will be a presentation in the Main Hall for parents. During this time, students will be able to visit representatives of the 6th Form Centres in the Dining Hall. After the presentation, parents are welcome to join their son or daughter. All the main Post 16 providers will attend this event along with employers and University representatives.

2. UCAS applications

Students will be continuing to undertaking activities that support their Post16 applications. This includes completing an initial assessment form to allow us to ascertain whether your child needs additional support in making decision around post-16 study.  Although we will continue our support with your child with this process, it is important that they fully engage with process in order to complete their application by the deadline of the 7th December 2018.

3. Open Evenings

Post 16 institutions all hold open evenings for prospective students. These evenings represent an important opportunity to find out information about the different courses offered and to get a flavour of what life at the different institutions might be like.
Attendance at the relevant events is key to students making informed decisions about where to go and what to study Post 16.
