September Sixth Form Induction Weekend for S5

 kit list - 150Your son/daughter has successfully entered the Sixth Form (S5/S6) at Canterbury School. The Sixth 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 either Advanced (A-Level) courses or the PAU 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 smooth the transition from IGCSE to AS-Level study, and to enhance the possibilities and opportunities available to your son/daughter, we have developed a Sixth Form induction programme. The induction programme will take place immediately after school from 1600hrs Friday 9th September until 1200hrs Saturday 10th September and although it is a voluntary  activity, ii would be desirable that all S5 students attended. The induction programme will cost 20€ per student. Please hand payment in cash (not cheque), along with the reply slip, to your son/daughters tutor
before the deadline of Wednesday 7th September.
