Year 12 AS-/A-level Options Day

Friday 14th February 2020 (9.00 am – 12.00 noon)

The presentations will start at 9.00 am and will be followed by meetings with subject teachers and Careers staff from about 9.30 am. It is a non-uniform day for students.

Choosing 6th Form courses is a major career decision for every Year 12 student. It involves dropping down from a relatively large number of GCSE courses to 4 or 3 ASlevels. Students take 3 of their AS-levels through to full A-level in Year 14.

It is important that every student makes the ‘right’ choice of courses; one which suits their individual interests, abilities and career aspirations. Staff will be available throughout the morning to give information and advice, to aid the decision-making process.

To help ensure that the right decisions are made, Year 12 students:

  • have been interviewed by Careers teachers;

  • have discussed and researched their course choices in their weekly Careers classes, and in some of their subject classes.

They also should explore the A-level courses that they are considering using the College Options Booklet which can be accessed from the College website.

In addition, many students have been interviewed by our DfE Careers Service Adviser.

We hope that all Year 12 students and their parents will be able to attend the Day. It would be useful if students brought with them their Christmas Reports.
