Sixth Form Enrolment

Students who wish to attend Kingsmeadow Sixth Form are invited to attend an enrolment day on Friday 7th July here in school. The event will begin at 9.30am and offers students the chance to begin preparing for life in sixth form, which can be both an exciting and a daunting prospect.

During the day, students will be issued with reading lists and key information about uniform, standards and expectations as well as starting the administration process (with this in mind, please bring contact and medical details). This is also an opportunity for students to discuss subject options in detail and talk to current sixth formers about their experiences.

Year 11 students who are unable to attend this event are advised to contact Amanda Weatherill in the Sixth Form Centre who will arrange for them to be sent an information pack including an enrolment appointment for next term.
