During the Spring Term we will be supporting students in Year 11 to make choices about post-16 education, training and employment opportunities. It is our hope that every student in Year 11 will return to our Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form provision at Newport High School is of the highest standard. For the past year we have worked together with Bassaleg Comprehensive School, Duffryn High School, St Josephâ€™s High School, and Coleg Gwent in an exciting new collaboration. In working with these schools we are able to deliver nearly 40 different courses for students. This means that Newport High students may complete some courses at other schools and likewise, students from other schools will study some subjects here.
The Newport West Post-16 Partnership offers a wide range of courses at Levels 2 and 3. Information about these courses and their entry requirements are available at a joint Pathways Evening which will take place on Wednesday 29 February 2012 at the Christchurch Centre 4.30pm-7.00pm. Updated course offer and requirements will be available at our website www.newportwest.co.uk.
At Newport High School we aim to provide the care, security and continuity that only a Sixth Form can, alongside a diverse and exciting range of subject choices. I look forward to discussing these opportunities with you over the coming term.
