Welcome to Year 12
Please click here for more information on starting Sixth Form at Balcarras and for the year ahead.
For all Balcarras Sixth Form enquiries, please contact Cheryl Crowley on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01242 545118. For absences and appointments during the school day, please email: email@example.com
All students should now have received their timetable, if you have not, please contact your tutor, or visit the Sixth Form offices.
In addition to the 36 subject lessons over the two-week timetable, you will also find others on your timetable:
Sixth Form Games
Sixth Form Speaker
If you are studying French, Russian or Spanish, you will also have an MFL speaker session which will need to be arranged in one of your allocated Study lessons.
Students who did not attend Balcarras previously will also receive their log-ins for the school network, email and virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in the first week, and newly enrolled students will receive their cashless catering cards (for lunch) and log-in details for Scopay (the schools financial system for paying for any events/extra curriculum activities etc). A letter will be sent home this week to inform parents/carers on how to set up an account and pay for food in advance. In the meantime, the catering staff in the Sixth Form common room are very happy to provide food to all students and will just keep a record of the students name and the cost of the food so that it can be paid at a later date.
Over the course of the first two weeks of term, all the students who are new to the school will be invited to join Mr Leatherbarrow, Mr Constance and tutors for a break time breakfast where any other f.a.q.’s can be addressed.
If you have any problems or concerns please visit Mrs Crowley in the Sixth Form offices on the first floor.
