After the first six weeks of study your teachers will discuss your progress with you in your lessons. This will be an important check on your progress. During this process you will have individual targets set to aid your progress. This process will be repeated throughout your course. You will also consult regularly with your form tutor and other key staff about your progress.
Parent/Teacher Consultation Evening
Parents’ Evening occurs once per academic year for all students. This will take place in March for Year 12 students. The purpose of the evening is to let parents know how students’ have progressed and to build the partnership between us. It is vital to involve students in the discussion and you are therefore expected to come along too. We also have a ‘Welcome’ Evening for parents during September of Year 12 to ensure that we can support students to make a successful transition into sixth form life together.
All students will receive a report in April which will frankly but fairly summarise how things are going. These comments need to be received and acted upon constructively. They also form an important input into whether you will be suitable to continue courses in Y13 and for references which we are often asked to write about you. Frequently, it’s not the level of achievement but the way you have worked and your ability to respond to advice that prospective employers or admissions tutors at Higher Education institutions are eager to discover. So again, they form an important part of your overall record and progress.
