Dear Parents/Carers

For those Year 11 students who are looking to join us in September, we would like to invite you to our Transition Day on Tuesday 10th July here on the Longsands Academy campus. You will be able to experience “taster lessons” as well as complete the initial registration and administration procedures. There will be an opportunity to update your subject choices at the end of this day should you wish to. We look forward very much to welcoming you to our Sixth Form very soon.

The Year 13 exams are now in full swing and will continue till Tuesday 26 June. Very best of luck to our Year 13 students and well done for all the hard work that you are putting in!

The Year 13 leavers’ event, the “Summer Ball” is fast approaching on Friday 22nd June, and will be held here at the sixth form block. Tickets are £20. Students are permitted to bring a plus one, see Mrs Emanuel or Mrs Walton to buy your tickets. Lots of fun has been planned and the students are also trying to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. To donate to this very worthy charity, please follow this link:

Following the release of the Year 12 exam results, the Year 12 focus has now switched to CVs, covering letters and looking forward to post 18 options with two important visits planned.
Thursday 21st June will see all year 12 students visiting the Careers Event at the Peterborough Showground and on Friday 29th June the students will visit the UCAS Convention at Bedford University. These events have been hugely beneficial in previous years and helped students formulate their future plans and keep their options open. Keeping an open mind is definitely a key message during this second half term. Further details about both visits can be found in the letter we emailed on Monday 18th June.

The ‘Destinations’ programme commences on Thursday 5th July, with a representative from Lincoln University who will be coming in to give a presentation to students on personal statements. In the afternoon, we will celebrate the end of Year 12 with a trip to Eat ‘n’ Bowl in St Neots from 2pm. On Friday 6th July, all Year 12 students will have an individual appointment with their form tutor or a member of the Key Stage 5 Support Team to discuss their future intentions and to create an action plan. We would like to invite parents and carers to attend the discussion if you are able. Appointments are being made by the students directly through their form tutors.

The last day of the summer term will be Friday 20th July.

Finally, all external and A Level results will be available to collect on Thursday 16th August and members of the KS5 will be also available for support and guidance on Friday 17th August and on Thursday 23rd August after the release of the GCSE results.

If you have any queries, please email or ring 01480 223373.

Best Wishes
