Message from the Head of Sixth Form
The St Ivo Sixth Form prides itself on offering a wide choice of academic, pre-vocational and extra-curricular opportunities for all its students. Appropriate programmes are designed for students in consultation with tutors and careers staff. The challenges of new post-16 courses are ahead with Year 12 students following a course of 4 AS levels or an equivalent combination of level 2 vocational, applied GCE and AS levels complemented by work in the key skills of communication, use of number and information communication technology. Students either take three of their AS levels or equivalent to a more advanced A2 level or extend level 2 vocational studies to applied GCE advanced level. High levels of achievement are expected and attained. All students must complement academic studies with a well-rounded programme of extra-curricular activities, from community service to sports. To achieve such standards, the school expects a high degree of commitment from its students. In exchange, the students should feel an entitlement to high standards from the school. This forms the basis of the Sixth Form Contract.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school to share any worries or concerns you may have about your son's or daughter's work at any time in the Sixth Form. You should contact school via myself or my two assistants and we will arrange for you to speak to the appropriate staff.
Mrs K Perry - Head of Sixth Form
