Year 12 Key Dates

Term dates are available here.
Getting ready to start Year 12 – 2nd September

By now, you should have spoken to Mrs Hollinshead or Mrs James and discussed your exam results and the courses that they qualify you to study in the sixth form. If you haven’t yet done that, please email a photograph of your grades to ahollinshead@wrotham.kent.sch.uk as soon as possible.

Friday 2nd September is your first day and we’ll expect to see you at 8.30am. Students who are new to Wrotham should report to reception and submit the enrolment forms that you were given or pick them up if you are yet to receive them.

Your lessons will start on Friday, so you should follow our dress code and have your summer assignments ready to submit to your teachers. These can be found on Show My Home Work and can be found on the week beginning 4th July. You do not need a username to access these.

As part of Kent County Council’s mission to reduce the number of young drivers who are seriously hurt or killed on the roads, the whole of Year 12 will take part in two preparation sessions for learning to drive.

The first sessions will be on the morning of Thursday 6th October, and the final sessions will be on the morning of Monday 31st October. This is the second year that we will be running these sessions, designed for Wrotham students and we are very grateful for the support of Kent County Council in providing these opportunity for us.
