Student Information

Attendance

If a student is likely to be absent for a genuine reason such as ill health or bereavement we would ask parents to contact us by telephone 0208 551 4321 (ext 524), or email sixthform@ecaterham.net

If we are not aware of a reason for absence we will attempt to call or text parents in order to warn them that their child has not arrived at school. You may sometimes receive an absence text if your child was in school but arrived late for the lesson.

Why attendance and numbers of AS and A Levels really matters

Over the years there has been much debate about what is a satisfactory level of attendance for Sixth Form students, and also how large their programme should be. At our Sixth Form we expect students to have 100% attendance, and certainly no less than 96% attendance.

Results of studies by ALPs (the leading organisation providing analysis of student performance at Advanced Level and BTEC Level 3) provides some answers. They looked at all the data for AS, A2 and BTEC National students comparing the results for students with the same average GCSE scores. 

On attendance they found a clear correlation between attendance and performance. 

A student with a particular average GCSE score will do a grade better on average if they have 95% attendance than if they attend 85% of the time. Broadly speaking, miss 10% of College and you can expect to drop a grade.

The research on programme size showed that in no instances did students perform better on average by dropping from 3 to 2 A Levels. For most GCSE ability bands those with the larger programmes did better. Amongst the most able students those doing 4 do at least as well as those doing 3. 

They conclude that, ‘students taking 3 A Levels are likely to perform nearly half a grade higher across the 3 subjects compared to those taking just two A Levels. It appears that a busy student is also more likely to be a successful one.

Dress Code

Caterham Sixth Form is an extremely happy and safe community.   We want our students to get the benefit of an excellent education without interference of any sort. Our sixth form building is staffed at all times and excellent security measures are in place.

We have a number of sensible procedures to ensure that only genuine students have access to the premises and to ensure that staff and students are kept safe.

The wearing of sixth form identity badges

Students will be provided with an identity badge at the start of the year. They should  put their badge on when entering the school grounds and should wear it visibly at all times. (There may be exceptions when doing sport or working with certain types of equipment)

If a student has forgotten their badge they may enter school but should go directly to the Sixth Form area to obtain  a temporary ID for that day.  On no account may a student go anywhere else in the school until they have dealt with their ID situation. The badge is issued free of charge at the start of the year but if lost replacements will need to be paid for.

Dress Code

We do not have a uniform in the Sixth Form, however there is a smart dress code.
Students are expected to wear dark suits, (jacket & trousers or jacket & skirt) as well as dark shoes. 

Hooded tops, T Shirts and baseball caps are not acceptable. Students who ignore the dress code will be refused entry to lessons and will have to go home to change.

Student Planners

Students will be issued with planners which they should have with them at all lessons.
Apart from homework these may be used for recording data and booking the dates of important events such as exams and  careers conventions. Staff may sometimes use the diary to note issues of concern. We would ask parents to check and sign the diary and to contact the form tutor if the amount of homework being set seems inappropriate.

We believe that all of these procedures, together with the Sixth Form code of conduct, are sensible, reasonable and beneficial to our students well being and education.

We expect full co-operation from students and a high level of support from parents in maintaining high standards.

Fundamental Values

CHS Sixth Form is committed to working closely and in harmony with its community and celebrating the diversity of peoples and cultures throughout the United Kingdom.
