Sixth Form Open Evening

Dear Parents/Carers,

Sixth Form Open Evening, Wednesday 23rd November 2022

I am writing to invite you and your child to the Sixth Form Open Evening, which will take place at The Halley Academy on Wednesday 23rd November 2022 between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

This is an opportunity for you to meet with members of the Sixth Form team (Hawking School) to  discuss how students are supported academically and pastorally in Years 12 and 13, investigate the different pathways available, and explore the individual subjects on offer with members of the relevant faculties.

The Halley Academy offers four distinct pathways in Sixth Form:

  • An academic/vocational programme through the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP), where students choose a career-related subject and supplement this with two academically rigorous IB Diploma subjects equivalent to 3 or 4 A-Levels.  This programme also includes the CP Core, which incorporates four hours per week of personal, interpersonal and professional development.
  • A vocational programme, where students study a range of career-related subjects equivalent to 3 or 4 A-Levels.
  • An academic programme consisting of IB Diploma subjects, equivalent to 3 or 4 A-Levels.
  • T Level programmes that combine study in school with a one day per week industry placement.

We also offer a Football Academy programme where students follow one of the above programmes in addition to regular training from a UEFA-certified football coach.  Students following this programme also study for industry-recognised qualifications in related fields such as coaching.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Academy for this event.


Yours faithfully,

Mr T Harrison

Head  of Hawking School
