Interview

Thank you to all students who attended their interview for the Sixth Form.  As a result of a successful interview we are writing to confirm an offered place as a post – 16 student at The Sixth Form at The Littlehampton Academy from September 2020.  Congratulations! Please note if you did not attend an interview or have not applied it is not too late to do that now. Please contact the Sixth Form should you wish to do so.

Entry Requirements

Please remember that all offers of courses at the Sixth Form are conditional on a student’s GCSE results.  Below is a reminder of the conditions applicable to each level of course available at The Littlehampton Academy Sixth Form.

Level 1 – There are no formal academic entry requirements for this course. Students will need to be dedicated to completing the course and will need a good attendance and behaviour record.

Level 2 – Students will need to have achieved a minimum of 2 GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) and above.​

Level 3 – Students will need to have achieved a minimum of 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) and above, including English and Maths. Please note. If a student wants to study Maths or any of the sciences then a grade 6 will be required at GCSE in that individual subject.

Sixth Form Taster Days

The Sixth Form taster days will take place on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 July 2020. The taster days are a perfect time to meet with teachers and other Sixth Form students, as well as experience selected lessons along with other aspects of Sixth Form life.

Both days will start at 8:40am and students will need to report to the Sixth Form Centre to collect their timetables and find out what the itinerary will be throughout the taster days and beyond. Students need to ensure that they are fully prepared for the lessons that they will attend over the two days, including basic stationary and a bag, as there will be materials to take away each day.

Instructions on how to sign up to these days will be given closer to the days themselves and this will be done through Wisepay (purely for the consent form, not as a payment).

 

Available subjects and option blocks

We work hard to accommodate our student’s subject choices. The matrix below has been created after gathering valuable data throughout this academic year. We have accommodated the vast majority of subject choices, however it has not been possible to offer everything. Please note that subjects appearing within the same column cannot be studied with each other as they are due to be taught at the same time.

Sixth Form Enrolment Day (Results Day 2020) – Thursday 20 August 2020

Following the success of the taster days, all students joining us in September (whether they have come to taster day or not) will need to attend the sign up day to confirm their subject choices for the academic year 2020-21. Sign up for the new Year 12 students will take place in the Sixth Form Centre on Thursday 20 August 2020 (GCSE Results Day) between 10am – 3pm.

We appreciate that not all students choose to attend TLA Sixth Form but in closing we want to wish all current year 11 students the best of luck with their GCSE exams and remind them that we are here to answer any questions that they have about the Sixth Form. We hope you find our taster days exciting and look forward to welcoming you to the TLA Sixth Form in September.
