Dear Parent/Guardian of Year 11 Students Considering Sixth Form Study at William Farr
SIXTH FORM INFORMATION EVENING
Thursday 24 January 2019 5.45pm - 8.00pm
You are invited along with your child to the Sixth Form Information Evening, which forms part of our programme of advice and guidance to students. The evening includes an introduction to the Sixth Form in the Main Hall, refreshments in the Dining Hall, followed by a series of subject talks.
We have placed our Information Evening in January to allow for students to have completed their Year 11 mocks and have a better idea about which subject sessions they wish to attend.
Information about the Sixth Form, the A Level subjects offered and entry requirements is available from the Sixth Form section of the school website. This is currently for September 2018 entry and will be updated this term for September 2019 entry.
Current students at William Farr will receive their application forms the week before the Sixth Form Information Evening. Forms for external applicants will be made available on the school website at the same time.
Applications for the Sixth Form can be made from Friday 25 January 2019. We would prefer for applications to be submitted by Friday 1 March 2019. This gives students time to make an informed choice of subject to study. Whilst we will accept applications or requests for changes of subject after this date, we cannot guarantee that places will be available on some courses.
Students who have applied to other Sixth Forms with an earlier closing date are still welcome to make an application to William Farr Sixth Form.
It is important that the evening keeps to schedule and the first session will begin promptly at 5.45pm so please leave some time for parking beforehand. We ask that external applicants sign in at Reception following the talk in the Hall to meet with staff and be assigned a guide for the evening.
Closer to the evening, the timetable will be made available for you to choose your talks for the Information Evening. Whilst most students will study 3 A Levels we recommend that they attend 4 subject sessions on the evening. Please return one sheet to Mrs Ginty at the School Reception by Monday 21 January 2019 to facilitate our arrangements.
We look forward to meeting you on the evening.
