Year 11 Sixth Form ‘Taster’ Day and Information Evening
Due to the adverse weather conditions yesterday the Sixth Form Information Evening was postponed however the ‘Taster’ day took place today. Our Year 11 students looked very smart in their business style, non-uniform clothes and have had an excellent day taking part in a variety of taster lessons and enjoying life as a Sixth Former. We look forward to welcoming them into Rossett Sixth Form in September.
Please note that the Sixth Form application deadline is Friday 15 December. Please click the link for the form which should be returned to form tutors: http://www.rossettschool.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Internal-Application-Form-Sept-2018-v3-1.pdf.
Due to a localised electrical issue on Tuesday 28 November, the catering tills were unable to connect to our server meaning that students’ catering accounts could not be debited immediately. The Finance Department have manually entered all transactions made on that day. This will be showing as an ‘Adjustment’ on your child’s SCOPAY account.
