Welcome to Sixth Form Evening - 15 September 2015


In addition, information about the different types of enhancement for Year 12 students is available as a PDF document below:

Year 12 Enhancement Overview - September 2015

All Year 12 students are required to attend school on Friday 4 September 2015 to formally enrol into Sixth Form, to select their enhancement subject and solve any outstanding timetable queries. Students are to meet in the hall for an 8.55am prompt start.

The enhancement subjects that students can choose from are:

  • AS OCR General Studies
  • Level 3 AQA Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
  • Level 3 AQA Certificate in Enterprise, Employability and Personal Finance
  • AS OCR Further Mathematics is available only to students who have met the subject grade entry requirements including passing the algebra test at the correct level; on receipt of their GCSE results, some students will now realise that they will have to select an alternative enhancement option

An overview of each option will be explained to the students ahead of them making their selection. Each of the subjects will have formal teaching time allocated and all have UCAS points attached to them.

The Higher Sports leaders Award (HSLA) runs outside of the formal enhancement programme and students will be able to sign up for this and other extra-curricular activities at the 'Freshers Event' on Thursday 17 September 2015.

Please also 'save the date' for:

  • Students: 14 September 2015 - Welcome to Sixth Form Day - all day event from 9.00am in the Queen's Hall
  • Parents: 15 September 2015 - Welcome to Sixth Form Parents' Evening - 7.00pm start in the lower school main hall

The QEHS team are looking forward to welcoming all the Year 12 students tomorrow, at the start of what hopefully will be an enjoyable and very productive two years.
