Year 11 into 12 Induction Day

May 2018

Dear Students,

We enjoyed meeting you in February and can confirm that we have reserved a place for you in Sixth Form conditional upon you gaining the correct GCSE grades.

I am now writing to invite you to take part in our Sixth Form Induction programme. This Induction Day on Monday 25th June, is a very important day. The programme will start in Wingfield Hall at 08.45 am finishing at 3 p.m. This will enable you to learn much more about the A Level and BTEC subjects you can study as well as finding out about some of the many opportunities available to John of Gaunt Sixth Form students. Just as importantly, there will be a chance to get to know students from other schools you will be with in the Sixth Form. Clarendon Academy will also be hosting their Induction day at the same time, which will allow students who have courses running there, to sample these too. We will be expecting all potential Sixth Form students to attend. You should dress in smart, comfortable clothing and remember that you are part of the school community so you should therefore be dressed appropriately. A copy of the Sixth Form Dress Code is attached. Sixth Form Dress Code

On Tuesday 26th June, the Sixth Form will run a drop in service from 08.45am until 12pm for students who have any queries about anything or wish to get further information on any issue. This will be in W8, the Sixth Form Office.

In order to welcome you into the Sixth Form our Senior Sixth Form students are arranging a social event involving food and games on the evening of the 25th June from 5 pm – 7 pm. In the past, it has always been a great success. I hope you will come along. Please use the tear off slip at the bottom of this letter to indicate whether or not you will be attending.

If you travel by bus, students should use your normal school buses to travel to Trowbridge for the Induction Days. If you require a bus pass for next year, you should have received one in the post, or you can download one from www.wiltshire.gov.uk. It is recommended that you apply for this before the 30th June in order for the travel pass to be ready in time for September.

We will be inviting your parents to a meeting in September so that they can also gain information about the opportunities and responsibilities presented at the John of Gaunt School. We hope that as many parents as possible will be able to attend. Meanwhile, if parents have any concerns at all, please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to meeting you again at Induction.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs L Baines
Assistant Headteacher and Director of Learning Post-16 Studies
