This Wednesday January 17th, W6 are holding a parents evening for all Year 12 & 13 students to attend with their parents. The evening commences from 4:30pm - parking is available in the main academy car park. We look forward to seeing everyone there! For Year 12 students it is important to have a discussion about how students have transitioned from Year 11 into the very demanding sixth form. For Year 13 students it is an opportunity to focus on ensuring students achieve the best that they can, particularly where they have applied to a university and acceptance onto their chosen courses will be dependant on achieving certain grades. What they achieve this year will determine what next steps they can take when they leave. We would like to see students attend even if circumstances prev
On Friday 15th December, all W6 students are invited to raise money for a local charity, and wear festive attire for the day, along with the rest of the school. Students can bring in just £1 in addition to wearing their festive knits, with all proceeds going to St Barnabas House, a local charitable hospice based in Worthing, West Sussex. We look forward to having some festive fun, alongside raising money for a great cause. More information can be found on our Facebook page "SRWA Sixth Form" - join in the discussion.

Get together with friends or colleagues and hold a fundraising event." We are also asking if any students
Thank-you to all Year 12 students who travelled by coach and attended the "Safe Drive Stay Alive" presentation this morning, at The Pavilion Theatre, Worthing. About 40 students watched the show, which encouraged younger drivers to make informed decisions when driving. What is it about?

It is a hard-hitting stage show that aims to reduce the number of young people who are killed or seriously injured on our roads. The show combines narrative film footage of a group of teenagers whose journey ends in tragedy with real life stories brought bravely to the stage by those people whose lives have been changed forever by a car crash. Remember: 100 minutes of enrichment
