In Year 11 students will have just eight months remaining at Le Rocquier School. Within these eight months main events include the November visit to Hautlieu School and Highlands College. Students will be selecting which of the sixth form providers they would like to visit and are able to either choose one or both. Selection also includes subjects and courses that they are thinking about studying when they leave us and we hope that by having a taster of what is on offer this will help them make clear decisions in relation to their future. By the end of January in Careers lessons, students will be finalising these choices and references will be called. References are written by the Careers teachers It is then a waiting game, and the length of the wait usually depends on the course that the students have applied for.
Students applying to Highlands College might be expected to attend an interview at Highlands College once they have been invited to do so by letter sent to their home address. Students applying to Hautlieu School will be interviewed here at Le Rocquier. In preparation for these interviews the Careers department at Le Rocquier will be ensuring that CV’s are ready and we also will be studying body language and practising appropriate interview techniques and answers.
The last day of the Autumn Term the Year 11’s have traditionally held a Christmas Lunch to mark this December being their final at Le Rocquier. This event is usually held at the Ambassador Hotel. There will be more details to follow.
The Class Of 2018 Leavers Prom will be on the minds of the students all year and we would like to really go off with a bang this year. The date for this event is Thursday 21st June.
Results Day will be Thursday 23rd August. We recommend that all students come into school to collect their results from 10am until midday. Once they have collected these results they can then start to communicate with their chosen sixth form provider.
