Ashton on Mersey School Sixth Form

Mr B Kelly Head of Sixth Form

It has been a very busy half term not only with curriculum demands but I have also been very proud of the additional contribution students in the Sixth Form have made to Enrichment activities. We have had a very pleasing half term involving the success of our annual fundraising week.

Each March, the students choose a charity and raise as much money as possible within a week. This year, the students chose to support two charities, the Alex Hulme Foundation and  Alzheimer’s Society. There are still one or two form fundraising activities to take place so we will not know the final amount raised for a few weeks.

After Easter, we are entering a crucial time within our students’ curriculum, which will demand discipline and rigour from all our post-16 learners. All students need to ensure that they are
responding to teacher feedback to complete the year on a positive note, in order to achieve their true potential.

Accompanying this newsletter is your son/daughter’s progress report. On the whole, the progress reports have been of a high standard this term. However, there are still a few students who have not embraced the support and guidance given and seem to be ‘coasting’. Time is running out for our learners and I don’t want any of them to be disappointed in August when results are published. Determination, resilience and good time management are essential for all individuals’ success.

I would personally like to wish each and every student and their families, a very happy Easter. We look forward to welcoming students back into the Sixth Form for their final term before the summer holidays.
