THE SIXTH FORM VIRTUAL ‘INDUCTION DAY’ 2020

Wednesday 8th July.
Time: 9:30am- 3:30pm.

Whilst we would have preferred to meet you in person, sadly due to the current circumstances, our normal induction day cannot take place in school. However, the opportunity for students to be inducted into our Sixth Form is not one we wanted to let pass as we feel it is important that you are prepared and feel part of our college community from the very start.

We have made plans and adjustments to our induction programme and are pleased to be able to offer students a ‘Virtual induction Day 1’, bringing this day to you at home via our school website instead. Day 2 of the Sixth Form Induction process will be on Wednesday 2nd September in school (information TBC).

All new year 12 students, join us on Wednesday for this fantastic opportunity to find out more about Sixth Form life through the tasks, information, advice and support available. On Wednesday 15th July there will be a ‘Live Q&A’ session with the Head of Sixth Form and Heads of Year. We hope that you enjoy the day and we are delighted that you have chosen to continue your education with us at Southam Sixth Form.

Look out for your formal letter and postcard to explain the full details. We look forward to welcoming students to this event.

Stay Safe

Students are encouraged to enjoy time outdoors over the Half Term break, whilst maintaining social distancing and lockdown requirements.

We would like to remind everyone of the dangers of swimming in open water, quarries are not appropriate for swimming in and pose a risk to young people and adults alike.  Please enjoy the nice weather in a safe way and remember to apply your sunscreen.

Mental Health

Just like our mental health, we have to take care of or mental health too. Sometimes there can be a barrier to talking about our mental health, but there should not be. There is no shame in struggling, and it’s ok not to be ok.
