Mayfield Grammar School Gravesend
Welcome to Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend.
Welcome to the Mayfield Grammar School area of the online prospectus and thank you for considering our school for your post-16 education.
You will be very welcome at our Sixth Form Options Evening on Thursday 5th December 2019, doors open at 6pm. There will be a general talk about life in the Sixth Form at 6:30pm and then you will be able to speak to teachers and current students who are studying the subjects which you are considering for next year.
Applications for Sixth Form can be made via Kentchoices.co.uk from Monday 4 November 2019 to Friday 7th February 2020. You can select three or four A Level subjects.
Once your application has been received, information will be requested from your current school regarding predicted grades and then if you are likely to meet the minimum entry requirements you may be invited to a meeting to discuss the combination of courses that you would like to study.
Successful applicants will be made offers for next year, conditional upon their GCSE results. If you are made an offer we would expect you to attend the Sixth Form Induction Day on Monday 6th July 2020.
I would like to wish you success in making the right decision for yourself at this very important time in your education.
We believe our Sixth Form provides a caring environment where courtesy and co-operation create a stable atmosphere in which students can thrive. We endeavour to create a Sixth Form environment where individuals aspire to achieve the highest academic standards of which they are capable. Students have greater responsibility for their own studies and we encourage independence whilst ensuring individual talents and leadership qualities are developed. A commitment to study and a willingness to make a positive contribution to the life of the school will ensure a rich and fulfilling Sixth Form experience.
Sixth Form students are involved in running clubs, helping younger students with their studies and coaching teams. There are opportunities for students to become Senior Officials, Subject Prefects, Form Prefects and take responsibility for Charities, Cultural Issues, Green Council, Sixth Form Liaison as well as Publicity. To become a member of the Sixth Form is to take a very important step. Students are faced with a wide array of choice and new freedoms.
Staff at Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend are highly qualified and dedicated to using their expertise to swiftly engage and motivate students in their chosen courses of study. There is an extensive range of courses on offer within the school. Our Sixth Form curriculum has been developed to maximise choice and to equip students with the qualifications and skills they need to access the next stage of their development, be it Higher/Further Education or employment with training.
We welcome students, both girls and boys from other schools and offer an induction programme that ensures students joining our school feel secure and confident about Sixth Form life at Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend. We hope that you will want to become part of our school community and look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form next September.
