The new academic year got off to a great start this week with BBC Radio Newcastle dropping in to talk to our Head Girl and Deputy Head Girl about the value and importance of women’s right to vote.
The interview took place in our Advanced Study Centre with the girls ‘going live’ at 8:50 (link to the show https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/play/p06hpvzb). Despite being nervous Claudia and Phoebe provided thoughtful comment on such an important issue. The girls were joined by Penny and Philippa Supporters and educators around the Women’s Suffrage movement. Penny is part of the Morpeth-based Emily Inspires group and Philippa, a third generation descendent of Emily Davison.
Whilst being interviewed live on local radio was both nerve wracking and exciting, it was a great opportunity to see and discuss modern broadcast media. Laura from Radio Newcastle discussed the importance of work experience within the journalism industry. Indeed, the technology that was used was surprising… and iPad and microphone!
The presentation from our Year 12 Information Evening is available by clicking here.
Students will be emailed the details of the ChromeBook scheme which will include links to sign up and set up payments.
Any student wishing to apply for entry into our Sixth Form should complete this online application form.
Students should check the entry requirements in the Post 16 prospectus first and then check that combinations of subjects are possible using this latest option pool document. Students should choose one subject from each of the four option columns, even if you intend to only follow three A Levels.
The online application will ask you if you are predicted 46 points or not (see prospectus about how to calculate). The range of subject choices will depend on your answer. If your prediction suggests you will narrowly miss 46 points, then click that you have 46 points to give you access to the full range of subjects. Following your GCSE results in August, if you do not achieve 46 points an interview, with a member of the 6th form team, will take place on the 5 September to discuss which subjects are possible.
Bridging Week will take place during the week beginning 10 July, where students will try their chosen subjects for a week.
Following GCSE results in August, all students should confirm their final subject choices using an online form which will be available on our website on results day.
If you would like a personal discussion and a tour of the school, please contact us via our email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will send out further information during the year, but we would expect you to attend Bridging Week and a presentation afternoon on Friday 7 July.
