King James' School

Joining the Sixth Form

When you join the Sixth Form at King James´s you will be joining a community of around 220 students. By winter in Year 11 you will be thinking seriously about deciding your post-16 options - subjects and course level. Whether you are already at King James´s or are new to the school, we will provide you with a carefully planned, step-by-step induction programme that will ensure that you are fully briefed to make the best possible choices. Through discussions and interviews with your Form Tutor, Careers Advisor and other staff you will have every opportunity to look at your strengths and to decide upon the most suitable option for you.

Significant events in the induction programme for students wishing to enter the Sixth Form in September 2018 are as follows:

**External candidates will have a separate induction programme and will be advised once an application has been received.

We can´t wait to see you in September!

If any aspect of your application is unworkable you will be advised. Also, in the event of a course being very unpopular, we do reserve the right to withdraw it at any stage. Should this be the case you will be informed as soon as possible.

Late applications are accepted but as time goes on the timetable becomes less flexible and therfore options will be reduced.
