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.

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.

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. "Wear it Festive for St Barnabas House this Christmas! It couldn’t be easier or more fun. Drape yourself in tinsel, don some antlers or go full Santa for the day! 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? Safe Drive Stay Alive is aimed at 16-18 year-old students who are either already driving or learning to drive. 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
The Chromebook Scheme is back. Students can purchase an affordable Chromebook, which seamlessly links into your Google SRWA account. They have great battery life so you can charge it, bring it into college and not need to plug it in again until you get home. They are light, robust and portable. Chromebooks have built in virus protection and are always up to date. Startup times are impressive with booting up taking only a few seconds. The models we are offering are the Acer C738T and Lenovo N23. And you can find out more about Chromebooks here.
