A Level / BTEC Results Day
A-Level and BTEC Results Day 2018 will be published Thursday 16th August
School will open from 10am-2pm for students to pick up their results in person.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide grades to friends or family members so transcripts will remain in school until students are able to come and collect them.
Preparation for Results Day
Students should ensure that contact details are up to date on UCAS as universities may need to contact them.Students should check their UCAS (track) account from 8am on the morning of Thursday 16th. If they are holding conditional offers they will be able to see whether or not they have been accepted into their chosen university.
Clearing and Adjustment
Where students feel that their current offer is not the right one for them or they do not meet its conditions they can elect to go into Clearing. Clearing places tend to fill up very quickly on results day so students should check the availability of courses in advance. Staff will be on hand to support conversations with universities on results day.
Where students have done better than anticipated they can go through Adjustment. This means that they can hold their firm offer while searching, through Clearing, for a more competitive course. Again, it is essential that students research the availability of courses in advance. Students can search for courses here: https://www.ucas.com/clearing-launch
Apprenticeships and Employment
We are on hand throughout the summer to support those students who have decided to go on to an apprenticeship or into employment. If you would like to book an appointment with our destinations manager please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sixth Form at Ark Putney Academy
If you're in Year 11 and thinking about Sixth Form choices come and see what we have to offer! - We can organise a personal tour any time.
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school-based Sixth Form which is devoted to helping every student achieve their potential and supporting them into their chosen university or career. We are equally proud of our track record with Oxbridge and Russell Group applications as we are of consistently beating our target grades in vocational qualifications.
Our Sixth Form students are in small classes where they get great teaching and intensive one-on-one support from highly skilled teachers. Our teachers know their students’ strengths and weaknesses and painstakingly plan, prepare and make themselves available to meet students’ needs.
We give every one of our Sixth Form students the opportunity to broaden their horizons with topical speakers, extra-curricular activities and structured debate, discussion and presentations. Each student is also a leader and a role model and we expect each of our students to do something significant to make a difference to the life of the school or the wider community.
We expect all of our students to leave us with:
• An appreciation and curiosity of life and learning
• A sense of ambition to unlock and fulfil their potential
• A desire to contribute to society in a positive way
• A sense of self-awareness, with the courage to be compassionate towards others
We aim to help our students grow into confident, happy and inquisitive adults and we welcome interest from all applicants who can demonstrate their ambition and drive.
I look forward to meeting you.
Matthew Neuberger, Head of Sixth Form
