S5 Induction Weekend

Colegio-Privado-Internacional-Britanico-Ingles-Las_Palmas-Maspalomas-English-School-s5inductionweekendDear Parents: your son/daughter has successfully entered the VI Form (S5/S6) at Canterbury School.



The VI Form is beyond compulsory education and is principally in place to assist your son/daughter to gain accession into Higher Education establishments; albeit a University or a vocational training institution.

All students in S5 will begin Advanced Subsidiary (AS-Level) courses, which will lead to Advanced (A-Level) courses in S6. These are high-level, demanding, academic qualifications that require a different approach to study from traditional IGCSEs. Students will be required to conduct private and independent study and become critically analytical in their academic work. Students will also be required to demonstrate considerable amounts of teamwork, collaboration and cooperation in order to achieve at this level.

As part of Canterbury School's commitment to facilitate the transition from IGCSE to AS-Level study, and to enhance the possibilities and opportunities available to your son/daughter, we have developed a VI Form Induction Programme. The Induction Programme will take place immediately after school from 1600hrs Friday 15th September until 1300hrs Saturday 16th September and is it essential that all S5 students attend.

The programme will cost 20€ per student. Please hand payment in cash (not cheque), along with the completed reply slip to the school office before Monday 11th September.


Kind Regards,

David O'Kane
Head of VI Form
