Life at College

Upper 6th Parents

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

.As with last year it is even more important that your son/daughter uses the time that they are not in lessons productively. Students should be planning to do at least 15 hours study a week  outside of class (this would be 5 hours per A Level for a 3 A Level student). Please help your son/daughter to plan when they will do this. They will probably want to do some at college and some at home. I will send you by letter a copy of your son/daughter's timetable. Please keep this at home so that you can be aware of when they should be in lessons. You could also use their timetable to help them plan their study time.

 

There is a Parent Information Evening on Tuesday 10th October.  It would be lovely to see you there so that we can share the messages we have given to our students and it is an opportunity to explain how we can work together to ensure that your son/daughter achieves and progresses. Please follow the link below to book your place.
