  • Upper 6th Parents

    Published 27/09/17

    It is a great pleasure welcoming back your son daughter for their final year at Havering Sixth Form College.

     

    Your son/daughter now has the experience of the first year of studying at the College and how important it is for them to be responsible for their own study. In their second year however, they will experience even more complex and demanding work which will stretch them. This is not only because our expectations will be higher but also there is greater rigour in the second year of all A Level and BTEC programmes

  • New Parents' Message

    Published 14/09/17

    It has been a great pleasure welcoming all  the new students to Havering Sixth Form College. They have all attended an  assembly with myself and Paul Nutter (Deputy), where we shared with them the challenge that lies ahead and the ways they can ensure success. We have also issued them all with a starter pack to help them.

    Your son/daughter will experience complex and demanding work which will stretch them. They will need to use  the time that they are not in lessons productively.

  • Helping Your Son or Daughter to Succeed

    Published 01/03/17

    All students have been sent a very clear message this week about how to succeed. They will also be discussing this with their coach this week.

    There is a simple formula to succeed at Havering Sixth Form College. Success means achieving target grades or better and progressing to a great job or University.

    The formula is:  Attend 100% + 15 hours minimum study per week = Success

    All students should be doing this now. Attendance rates are high this year, so we have high hopes for student success. If your son or daughter is struggling to complete 15 hours a week of study they should ask their teacher what else they can do and talk to their coach about how to plan their time.
