Following the Government’s legal direction, here is an open letter to families in . My main priority has always been children & families across not a courtroom battle with the Government, and I acted based on data that shows rising cases of https://t.co/75N6n00OU9

Tuesday 15th December Update- We will be open to years 10,12 &13

14/12/20

Hi Michael - central government have made their position 100% clear: schools, nationwide, need to remain open. We are simply following that direction.

Hi Leanne - give us a ring in the morning. You are not at risk of a fine but we’d love it if your other child came in to school. I have no doubt that some parents are worried but please get in touch and we can talk it through.

13/12/20

Sorry to hear that Leanne - no doubt the Local Authority have made their decision in good faith. We take our lead from the Department for Education which has said schools should remain open wherever possible. We have around 95% of our staff fit and ready to work so we’re open.

Hi Allan - we are an academy and despite good relations with the Local Authority we are not bound by their recommendations. We are open and looking forward to seeing the students this week.

Excellent webinar from . Having previously worked for / with him at it definitely rings true. By far the best professional development I've ever had, both formal and informal. https://t.co/HMVEySLmJc

Destinations

 

At Harris Academy Greenwich Sixth Form we believe that all destinations matter, with this in mind we want to support our students with the destination of their choosing – whether it be UCAS or applying for an Apprenticeship. All members of the Sixth Form Team know the demands of choosing a destination and can provide support and guidance alongside our Careers Advisor on ‘the next steps’ and making the ‘right choice’ for an individual. We pride ourselves on knowing our Sixth Form students, so we can support them to make the decision that is right solely to them.

 

UCAS

With the majority of our students attending Higher Education, we take students through the entire UCAS process with help including

  1. Selecting the most appropriate five choices for university
  2. How to select a conditional and insurance offer
  3. How to write a personal statement
  4. How to apply for student finance
  5. What to do on the day if they have not met their offer with dedicated staff going through clearing with the students
  6. What to do on the day if they have exceeded their original offer and would like to apply elsewhere

Apprenticeships

With more and more young people choosing to undertake Apprenticeships, we believe it is vital to help support our students with Apprenticeship applications and helping them find the right apprenticeship for them. With this in mind, not only do all students looking to apply for an apprenticeship receive one to one support with our designated Career’s Advisor through every stage of application as well as the opportunity to attend bespoke careers days to each student’s needs. We also support students to try and find degree apprenticeships if they so wish – which are in high demand due to the limited opportunities to obtain one.
