6.30-8.30 PM, THURSDAY 21st NOVEMBER 2019 SIXTH FORM OPEN EVENING
The Coleshill Sixth Form’s aim is to foster a vibrant, supportive and happy sixth form community in which each student is encouraged to develop a wide range of intellectual, cultural and recreational interests, to strive for excellence in fulfilling their potential and to develop a sense of independence and social and moral responsibility in preparation for the roles they will play in the wider community of the 21st century.
We operate in a purposeful, friendly and adult environment in which students are encouraged to develop a sense of independence and take responsibility for their study; this can perhaps best be described as ‘challenge with support’. The two years in the Sixth Form are important in shaping your future career and education and will also, we hope, be remembered as an exciting and enjoyable experience.
The Coleshill School offers students a chance to continue developing the skills and attitudes that are required later in life. It provides opportunities for extra - curricular and community interests and students are given every encouragement to be leaders in the school through our unique Leadership Award.
Above all the Sixth Form is about helping you realise your potential whatever it is. We want our Sixth Formers to be successful and happy whether this is success in university entrance, in your chosen career or in developing your wider potential. We also want our Sixth Formers to be considerate and responsible members of a happy and thriving community.

APPLICATIONS AND APPEALS
Applications for The Coleshill School are administered by the Warwickshire Admissions Service:
Please visit the above website for full details about admissions and appeals.
Warwickshire schools admission arrangement policies can be found on their website: http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/admissionpolicies
All admissions to the school must be made through a child’s home Local Authority and therefore this could be Warwickshire, Solihull or Birmingham, depending upon where a child lives.
Apply either online or by paper form with your own Local Authority. Remember, as Coleshill is a Warwickshire School, if you reside in Solihull or Birmingham Local Authority areas you apply to these Authorities, observing their deadlines using their forms or on-line website.
0121 704 6693
0121 675 0555
Apply using your home Authority’s form or website and you will need to name ‘The Coleshill School’ on the form or website as they will only list schools located within that Authority. Simply write or insert ‘The Coleshill School’ as your choice and your Local Authority will automatically inform Warwickshire Admissions to secure your application.
The Coleshill School Admissions Team
Mr I Smith-Childs
Mrs T Rawlins
Due to exceptionally high levels of demand we have increased our PAN (Published Admission Number) to 210 for the Year 7 in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. All other year groups remain 180.
We positively welcome applications from other Local Authorities. We are happy to meet with prospective parents to show them around the school and answer any queries. Please contact Mrs Barnes as above.
The decision to move a student's school once they have started their secondary school is never one taken lightly by parents. Moving house or catchment areas or other more personal reasons can trigger an enquiry for a school place. The school has a planned admission number for each year group that it cannot exceed without referring a parent to the admissions appeals system. However, places do become available within year groups and parents are welcome to contact the school to see if a space exists.
How do i apply for a school place if my child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement for SEND?
The Coleshill School prides itself in being inclusive and will endeavour to support every student. We would love you to consider our school and we aim to meet the needs of all the students in our care.We are committed to meeting the needs of all, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.We would ask parents to discuss the identified needs with the school prior to starting so that appropriate intervention and support can be planned. Advice from the LA or other agencies may be requested to ensure that the school can meet any needs appropriately
Children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (or Statement of Special Education Needs) follow a different admission and transfer process for a new school. You continue to have a right to request a particular school and this will be considered alongside the information that we have about your child’s special educational needs. The information would have been provided as part of the Education, Health and Care assessment or following the review meeting.
As a school we aim to do the very best in order to make all children feel welcomed and included during transition. If you would like to discuss SEND requirements in detail please Contact the SENDCO: Gina Bye who will be able to advise you further. Please go to the SEND information page for more information: https://www.thecoleshillschool.org/parents/send-information
How do we support SEND students in care?
There are exceptions for admissions when considering students who are looked after and are under the care of the Local Authority.
For any enquiries relating to a place at the school in any year group please contact the Data Team as above.
THE COLESHILL SCHOOL WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAMME
I think the week’s Work Experience was really worthwhile and interesting, for Ryan. Here’re a few photos from Ryan’s week.
Ryan visited The Elmshurst Ballet School, in Birmingham on Monday. On Wednesday, he attended a marketing meeting with the Dance Consortium in London. Finally, on Friday, he visited the Birmingham Royal Ballet stores in Minworth. Ryan was particularly fascinated by the range of props stored in the vast premises there!
What is Work Experience?
Work Experience is a period of time spent by students in Year 10 in an adult working environment. The variety of places available is limited only by safety, insurance or security restrictions. The choice is determined by the student and courses chosen in consultation with subject teachers, tutors and with Mrs Bishop, the Work Experience and Careers Co-ordinator at school. This year, Year 10 Students will be spending one week from 1st to 5th April 2019.
Work Experience helps students to:
Depending upon the courses you are presently studying at school, some, such as Health and Social Care, require you to gain a Work Experience placement within that subject area to support your coursework. You may already have a clear idea of the career you wish to follow post 16 and so Work Experience within that area would be your ideal choice. If you have no clear idea what you would like to do for Work Experience, please see Mrs Bishop, Work Experience and Careers Co-ordinator in the Library who will be able to help and support you.
Make sure you discuss your Work Experience placement in depth with your parents/carers in the first instance. If you require any guidance or advice p[lease see Mrs Bishop.
This might include:
If you have any queries about Work Experience please contact Mrs Bishop, Head of Year 10 / Work Experience and Careers Co-ordinator at school. Her office is located within the Library.
