Induction Days 2023

We would like to invite you to our Sixth Form induction period taking place on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th June 2023. You will be required to attend both days as, during this time, you will be given the opportunity to experience A Level lessons and life at KSA Sixth Form as well as looking at transition work to ensure you are ready to access your A Level subjects. This is an opportunity to trial subjects in preparation for the September start. You can trial more subjects than you have selected on your application. You will be required to arrive at KSA between 8.25 and 8.40 and you will be in lessons until 3.00. You will need to arrive and leave via the main school entrance. You will be registered and directed to the Sixth Form Block. You will need to provide your own lunch and snack for break. During the induction period you will be required to attend in suitable business attire. If you currently do not have any business wear, you could wear your school shirt and trousers/skirt minus the school tie. You will need to bring something to write with during the day. You may bring a laptop if you wish but the school will not be liable for any loss or damage to it. As part of the induction period, you will be given your transition work. This will need to be completed and returned to your subject teachers in September. To ensure we know who to expect for this induction period, please complete the survey via the Link before Wednesday 21st June 2023. We look forward to welcoming you and hope you enjoy this exciting experience. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please contact our head of Sixth Form Miss Davies on
