The Year 11 into 12 evening will take place on Thursday 4th March from 4.30-7.00pm.
A-level staff will be present at subject stalls to speak to you about the requirements of each subject and to explain the assessments and modules for each course.
There will be three introductory talks, one at 4.45pm, one at 5.30pm and one at 6.00pm. These talks will be ticketed by a colour code system and each parent/carer will receive a colour token on arrival. The talks are optional and, if you wish, you are free to walk around the stalls without attending your assigned talk.
The evening will take place on the middle floor of the Sixth Form Centre. Parking will be tight in front of the school so, if you able to walk, it may be easier for you. Entrance to the school will be best via the white doors opposite the Dome. There will be Sixth Form Prefects on duty to guide you in the event that you are lost.
I will be sending a series of videos to help you advise your child on their options. I apologise in advance if you are somebody who doesn't enjoy watching YouTube videos but I feel that using the technology available is a way of advancing the options process. I hope you enjoy them.
Students will be able to access the options form on google classroom and will then have one week to complete it as the deadline will be Friday 12th March. Whilst we hope that students don't change their minds too much after completing their forms, there will be a chance to change these options in the summer, timetable permitting. External students can access the options form below and must then either post it or hand deliver it back to school.
My email address is Richard.Karran@sch.im. Please email me if you have any questions that are not addressed in the videos.
I look forward to seeing you on the 4th March,
Director of Sixth Form, Ballakermeen High School
