10/3/23 Roundup – Sixth form

Year 12 – UCAS Fair

Coach lists are up in the 6th Form common room for students to sign up to a coach for the trip. 

The UCAS fair in Derby is on Friday 17th March.  Students will travel by coach from school after morning registration.  Students will travel back to school in time for their usual home-time.  Any last-minute attendees, please contact the 6th Form office.


Please can Y13 students check the progress of their UCAS applications on a regular basis.  There may be deadlines to confirm their places.  Confirmation must come directly from students, not TAHS staff.  Please contact the sixth form team with any queries.

Year 12 Lockers

We are offering a limited number of lockers to Year 12 students on a first come, first served, basis.  There is a £5 refundable deposit payable via Parent Pay.

Please can students bring a copy of their Parent Pay receipt to the Sixth Form Office where they will be issued with their key.

Refunds will be issued via Parent Pay when the key is returned.  This must be before the end of Year 13 whilst still on roll.
