Thursday 3 November 2016 – 5-7.30pm
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Swale Sixth Form. This is a joint post 16 provision offered by Westlands School, Sittingbourne Community College and Swale Vocational Centre.
The time has now come for our Year 11 students to begin considering their plans for next year and beyond. As you may already be aware, the Government has raised the participation age to 18, meaning that all students will be required to remain in education or training for a further two years.
Therefore, we would like to invite all of our students and their parents to the Swale Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 3 November 2016. The event will take place at both school sites- Westlands School and Sittingbourne Community College between 5pm and 7.30pm.
Swale Sixth Form offers an extensive range of courses providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain the qualifications they need in order to be able to progress to the next phase of their adult lives. The launch of Swale Sixth Form has enabled us to expand the number of subjects and qualifications available and draw upon expertise from across the town.
Swale Sixth Form Open Evening will provide you with the opportunity to meet the Sixth Form team and discuss the different options available. There will be course information on display in and around the Sixth Form Study Area and subject specialist teachers will be available to answer any questions you may have. I would strongly urge all Year 11 pupils to attend this important event, regardless of their current plans for the future.
To apply to the Swale Sixth Form, pupils will have to complete an online application form via www.kentchoices4u.com . Students should have received a letter addressed to them with information on how to apply. They will receive further guidance in school which will explain how to create a profile using the online system and enable them to make their desired choices.
I look forward to seeing you and relish the opportunity to demonstrate everything we can offer.

Principal – Swale Sixth Form
