Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Post 16 Progression Evening – Tuesday 16th October 2018 from 6.00pm to 7.45pm

Patcham High School is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Post 16 Progression Evening for students in Year 11 and their Parents/Carers.

This is a valuable opportunity for students and their parents to gather information on choices beyond 16 and to have their questions answered by our local colleges, universities and apprenticeship providers.

The evening will start at 6pm with a talk from Mr. Newman, Deputy Head teacher who will introduce the purpose of the evening and cover some of the main options that students will need to explore over the next few months.  After the talk students and parents will move on to the pre booked presentations from our local colleges. You will be able to attend up to three different college talks, each lasting 20 minutes. In the canteen we will have representatives from Brighton and Sussex Universities, Apprenticeship Ambassadors to provide first-hand information on apprenticeships, BIMM (Brighton Institute of Modern Music) BRICTT (Brighton Institute for Contemporary Theatre and Training) DV8 (Digital Media) , BACA, PACA and Steve Willis Training.

You will need to complete and return this reply slip indicating the three college talks you would like to attend on the evening.

There will also be school staff on hand for you to talk to regarding any queries or questions you may have. This evening marks the beginning of Year 11 students’ exploration of the academic and vocational opportunities available to them beyond Patcham High. Over the next few months they will receive guidance and support with their choices and practical help completing college application forms and preparing for college and employer interviews.

Please see attached the times and dates of the local college open days and evenings which take place this term. The best way to help a student decide about a college and course is by visiting the colleges at these events, check their websites for more details. Parents and Carers are also encouraged to attend; generally you do not need to book however some colleges are requesting you pre-book (please look on their websites)

Should you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me on or 01273 543494

Kind Regards
