Dear Students,

I hope that the recent Induction Programme (10th of July) proved to be both informative and beneficial in your decision to continue your education at Kingsmead School. The purpose of this letter is to give you vital information about the start of term in September 2017.

GCSE Results
The results of GCSE examinations taken by students will be published on Thursday 24th August. They will determine the type of course students will follow. Senior teachers linked to the Sixth Form will be in Kingsmead on the day to answer any questions in the light of results obtained. The Enfield Careers Service offers impartial advice to students about progression pathways and to support the subject choosing process (0208 379 1000).

Enrolment Day
The final phase of our induction into the Sixth Form will be enrolment on Monday 4th September 2017. Enrolment will take place in the gym with students invited according to their surname. Please see the following time slots enrolment will end at 12:30. 

A – E at 09:30am   F – N at 09:50am   O – Z at 10:20am

External Students will be expected to bring in confirmation of their GCSE results on Thursday 24th August 2017 between 10.00am and 12 noon to enable us to see if they have met the criteria for entry to the Sixth Form.

Conditions of a Sixth Form place
The structure of some ‘A’ level courses have changed where students will be expected to carry their studies through until the end of Year 13. Therefore, it is vital that students choose their subjects wisely, bearing in mind career requirements and the effort needed to be successful on their course. All students will be on a monitoring period in the first three weeks of starting with us in September. During this time, any student not meeting expectations, will have their sixth form place withdrawn and their future progression at Kingsmead will end.

We will be holding a Parental Information Evening on 14th September to inform parents on the expectations of Kingsmead Sixth Form and how best to support students whilst studying ‘A’ levels.

Yours sincerely,

Mr P Winstanley
Learning Director of Sixth Form
