Dear students, parents and carers
 
I am delighted to join Magna Academy as Assistant Principal, focusing on the development of the Sixth Form. As I am new to Magna, and as we are all remote from one another at this time, you may want to have a look at this short profile I have written by way of an introduction.
 
Despite the unusual circumstances that we currently find ourselves in, my commitment to Magna students remains unwavering. I am proud to be leading on a number of exciting changes within the Sixth Form over the coming months, and relish the opportunity to share these updates with you in due course.
 
So, here's what I'd like you to do if you think Sixth Form at Magna might be right for you:
  1. In the column to the left of this page, you will see that there is a link under 'Documents' to a one-page PDF setting out the Sixth Form entry requirements for September 2020. Please open this up, download it if you want to, and familiarise yourself with the criteria for entry.
     
  2. Either click here or click on the link named 'Application Process' in the left-hand navigation bar to access a simple process I have laid out for you to follow. At key steps, you'll see that there are links to the right that you can click to access the documents you need.
We are proud that students from the Magna Academy Sixth Form follow a wide range of pathways.

Whatever their preference - all are supported by their tutor and a dedicated sixth form team, receiving individual advice and guidance from expert staff and visiting speakers. We also have strong links with our alumni to act as advisers and to share their experiences.
 
The newly established Futures Programme consists of varied events and support including:
 
  • employment workshops
  • clear guidance on applications
  • personal statement and CV writing
  • work experience
  • practice interviews
  • subject specific support about higher education and apprenticeships
We have already developed excellent links with a large number of universities, which are being further enhanced this year, and we aspire for as many students as possible to give 100% towards winning places at competitive universities, the pursuit of higher apprenticeships, or work based placements.

We encourage our students to excel on their journey and this will often involve them moving out of their comfort zone. Students are provided with both outstanding academic and pastoral support, and Individual advice and guidance, to help each of them thrive.
 
I will be making direct contact with every current Year 11 student over the coming weeks. I want to discuss the process of applying to Magna Academy Sixth Form and any concerns that may be held about the changes to this year’s examination procedure. I look forward to speaking with you.
 
If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact me at mrodgers@magna-aspirations.org.
