Year 12 Induction Programme 2020

Year 12 Induction Programme 2020


In normal circumstances we invite all Year 11 students, who have been offered a conditional place in our Sixth Form, to attend our 2 day induction programme. This year, we do not know if we will be able to offer an Induction programme, but the plan is that if there is any possibility of doing so, we will, but it may be for a shorter period and on different dates. We will let you know as soon as we can.

The schedule is below. We feel it is important for students to attend Induction for 3 main reasons:

1.    It is an opportunity for students from schools other than Queen Elizabeth’s to get to know the school routines, environment, teachers and students prior to September.

2.   With the majority of students taking 3 linear subjects, it is vital that they have made the right choice of subjects. During Induction students will experience real A level lessons and be set summer tasks (which will be published on the website nearer the time). We hope that this combination will ensure they are happy with the subjects they have chosen and if not, they can make a change as soon as possible in September.

3. Students will be put into their tutor groups and this will give them an opportunity to meet their peers and the current Year 12. Over the two days students will experience real Sixth Form life and we hope that this will allow them to get over the initial transition issues and should mean, for most students, that in September they will feel more comfortable and can “hit the ground running” with their studies.

Students should arrive in the main school Hall at 08.30 on Thursday 25th June where they will be registered and issued with a personalised timetable for the 2 days. Students will have study periods, where they will be expected to utilise the Study Room in the H block, or the library in order to carry out the tasks they will have been set.

Student should dress in casual wear (please see Sixth Form Agreement for guidance on what this means) for both days (generally Fridays are smart days, but not for Induction) and ensure that they have the right clothes and shoes to play games, hopefully outside, on Friday afternoon. If the weather is good, students should also bring sun cream.

Please can students email to say if they are attending or not. 

Please note that we have different school timings on Thursday with 45 minute lessons and the day ending at 14.30. Friday's timings are as normal but the school day will finish at 15.00.

We look forward (hopefully) to welcoming all our prospective students in June.
