the VI Form 2006:
The Sixth Form is open access in the sense that it is
available to any student who wishes to continue in full –time education
beyond the age of 16 - and for whom a relevant course can be offered.
Whilst there are no minimum educational requirements for entry to the
Sixth Form, we would certainly expect that students who intend to stay on
at school will have shown a commitment to study in the years prior to
Students in Year 12 are expected to work a full timetable
which includes a compulsory Complementary Studies course. (Key Skills and
Intermediate and Foundation students will spend 2 full days
at Tamworth College, one day on work experience placement and 2 days at
school developing their key skills. There will also be some time allowed
for private study.
All students are expected to study for 2-3 hours each
week-day evening during term time and students are advised not to
underestimate the homework commitment that a full-time programme involves.
Private study time during the school day is intended to supplement, not
replace, this homework expectation.
We hope that
this booklet is a helpful guide which initiates the process of making these choices.
