Important Information for joining Dene Magna 6th Form

Dear Students,

I hope this letter finds you all well.  It’s been a strange couple of weeks here as we go through the process of gradually opening up the school to small groups of students.  These last few months have demonstrated just how much schools do, beyond just teaching and learning and for all of us, teachers and students, we realise how much we miss being here.  I know from the contact I’ve had from many of you that you feel this too.  With this in mind, I wanted to say how much we’re looking forward to you joining us and that we hope it’s a smooth return for everyone: sooner rather than later.  

Plans are in place for enrolment to the Sixth Form to take place during results week.  Your exam results are formally published on August 20th and as soon as you get these we’ll be in touch with you.  The actual process of enrolment will take place at the Forest Campus in Cinderford on the following day, 21st August and we’ll take you through all the paperwork and confirm your course choice with you then. Because there may need to be some social distancing involved, there will be some restrictions in place - we’ll give you plenty of warning about these as we get closer to enrolment.  If you have any concerns about your potential grades, or the process of joining the Sixth Form, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us using the details below.

Finally,  in order to complete the pre-admission induction process, we’re going to be inviting all our applicants to virtual induction meetings. These have been designed to give you the opportunity to speak with our pastoral team via Google Meet, to discuss your option choices and to address any worries or concerns you may have.  In order to take part in this event, we’d like you to register with us, using the details below. The virtual induction sessions will take place on Weds July 1st at 11am and the session will last for about one hour. You will need to be able to access google meet via your DM email account - we will send you a link the day before the session but it’s worth checking that you have access to a computer with sound and a microphone.  As a general rule, we ask all our students to keep their cameras turned off and to be muted unless responding to questions and we also record all our ‘Meet’ sessions for safeguarding purposes.  We look forward to ‘meeting’ with you next week!

Please register for our virtual induction meetings by Friday 26th June at 3.30pm via email
