Dear Parents/Carers of our Year 11 Students,
We would like to invite you to the Sixth Form Open Evening in order to support you with making informed choices about the future of your son/daughter beyond Key Stage 4. As you are aware it is compulsory that your child remains in education or training until the age of 18 and Phoenix is an excellent choice to enable them to continue their progression into adult life.
The event will take place on Thursday 11th November 2021 between the hours of 5.00pm and 7.00pm and will provide the opportunity for you and your child to meet some of the current Sixth Form students as well as the specialist teachers that will be supporting them on their Key Stage 5 journey. On the evening, there will be two talks in the hall at 5pm and 6pm along with lots of time to visit staff in classrooms and discuss your child’s Key Stage 5 journey.
There are many reasons why Phoenix Collegiate should be the choice for your child to continue their development, including the fact that we have one of the widest ranges of Level 3 subject choices in the area. In addition to this, we are one of the highest attaining schools in Sandwell for A Level results and progress measures meaning that your son/daughter will continue to get the support they need throughout their studies.
Due to ongoing safety measures requested by DfE, I would appreciate it if you could undertake a lateral flow test prior to your visit and wear face coverings when circulating around the school. Departments have been spaced out around the main block to minimise traffic and ensure the safety of staff, students and parents.
Come along and see what is on offer at Phoenix Collegiate and take advantage of the information that you will gain on the evening to support your child with this important decision.
We look forward to seeing you at the Sixth Form Open evening.
Mr Luke Stevens
Sixth Form Academic Leader
