Dear Parents/Carers

This week we hosted a "Welcome to the Sixth Form" event for Y12 parents to share important information about the journey that lies ahead for their sons/daughters. Key messages about attendance, independent learning and enrichment opportunities were shared by the Sixth Form team. There was also the opportunity to attend a break out session to hear more about the Extended Project Opportunity, changes to Vocational courses and also our Access to A levels (A2A) course. If you were unable to attend then all materials given out will be passed to students directly. You will also be able to find a copy of the presentation under the "Advice, Guidance and Policies" tab.

A similar event for Year 13 parents is on Thursday 21st September from 6.30pm and I would encourage you to be there as there is a lot of important information to give out.

I promised an update regarding the unsatisfactory school transport/bus situation that some have faced. We received the following reply from Peter Langley, Education transport officer regarding the LS03 bus that serves Great Staughton, Perry and Kimbolton:

"I have checked the loadings and I can confirm that we are contracted with Whippet for a 74 seater and we have 73 children allocated to the bus. Thusly there should be ample space for all children on board."

If you wish to contact Mr Langley directly then his email address and telephone number are as follows: 01223 703896

As you are aware schools are not directly involved in the provision of transport and therefore we are guided by the local authority. If your son/daughter still continues to have a transport issue then could you please email with the students name and details of the bus number and/or route that you would like to use. In this way we can have an idea of the scope of the problem before raising it further with the local authority.

Best Wishes
Mr Mark Taylor
Director of St. Neots Sixth Form
Senior Assistant Headteacher 16-19
