  • Christmas Holidays

    Published 11/12/18

    We are fast approaching the end of term and the Christmas holidays.

    The last few days of the term are always very busy. For those of you with sons/daughters who are intending applying to university and have not yet completed their UCAS application I would ask that you encourage them to complete them as soon as possible, as the College is closed over the Christmas break and the staff of the CUBE will not be available to support applications.

    Welcome back from your Easter break. Most of you have exams in the summer term (either your formal end of qualification exams or summer mocks) and there are only a few weeks to go before they begin.  You must now plan your time to ensure that you do sufficient work to be successful. Some ideas you should consider are:

    • Thinking about how you need to improve following your spring term mock
    • Reducing your hours of your part time job
    • Keeping a balance between your social life and academic work

  • Key Week in College

    Published 23/02/18

    Next week is a key week in the College year.

    For students on BTEC programmes the normal timetable is suspended. Instead your son/daughter will be expected to attend specific workshops. The aim of these workshops is to ensure assignments are up to date and at the highest grade that they can be.

    The majority of our students will be sitting “mock” examinations in their A Level/GCSE subjects. This is an opportunity for your son/daughter to experience examination conditions at the College. There are three  exam sittings in each day starting at 8:30 a.m,  11:30 a.m and 1:30 p.m.  If your son/daughter arrives late they will not be able to sit the exam at the specified time.

  • 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.
