Information for Sixth Form Induction 29th & 30th June 2022
This section contains all of the information for students joining us in the Sixth Form in September. Please read through the documents carefully prior to your compulsory Induction event on the 29th and 30th June as they contain important information about life in the Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form Handbook
The Sixth Form Handbook is a key document which you must read before starting in the Sixth Form, so that you are aware of the culture and expectations, as well as how you will be supported in school. There is also the Dress Code and a document explaining the BSV Consortium, with information about general expectations and how each school operates in the Sixth Form.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
We have a policy which requires all students to bring in a device (laptop) to school. We would advise a device such as a Chromebook, although some subjects require an alternative type of laptop. The documents in this section explain this fully.
Sixth Form students may be eligible to apply for a bursary to support their studies. This enables them to be provided with a laptop on a long-term loan and there is a monthly payment to support with travel costs, uniform, textbooks and equipment. The documents attached explain the full details and eligibility criteria. Forms will be distributed on the first day in September so that students can apply.
Subject Criteria & Option Blocks
To confirm your place at Sandringham Sixth Form for September 2022, you must submit your individual course confirmation form to the main box at reception or the sixth form block preferably after you have received your results on Thursday 25th August. The absolute deadline is 9.30am on Friday 26th August. On this form you can request any subject changes. If we do not receive this form by the deadline, we assume you do not wish to take your place and we will release it for other students to take.
Each subject area has set Summer Work which is compulsory and must be completed by the first lessons in September. If you change a subject in August, you must complete the Summer Work by September for your new subject. If you are taking a subject at Beaumont and Verulam, you need to complete the work set by the subject there, not the work set by an equivalent Sandringham subject.
