Get ready for LaSWAP Taster Day

Friday 30 June

LaSWAP Taster Day is just around the corner! We are looking forward to a very busy day where our Y11s can meet hundreds of other applicants and experience a huge range of A Level, vocational and extended project qualifications alongside sessions on Russell Group universities, applying for medicine and Oxbridge. 

Y11s should meet at Acland Burghley at 8.30am to walk up to LaSWAP. More details about the day have been emailed to families this week. Please let me know if you did not get the email. We hope to see all of our Y11s there for an exciting and inspiring morning before they head to prom later in the day.

Please get in touch with any questions about any aspect of LaSWAP, Taster day or Enrolment.

Webinar: Introduction to LaSWAP and post-16 for new Y12 parents

Wednesday 12 July at 6pm

Meeting ID: 897 5848 8912

Passcode: laswap

This webinar is designed for parents and carers whose children have a conditional offer to start at LaSWAP in September. We will introduce some of the team at Acland Burghley and the wider consortium and discuss enrolment arrangements, the structure of LaSWAP and the timetable, how to prepare for 6th form transition and answer questions about graduating from Y11 to Y12. 

The session will also cover some general points and tips about post-16 study at other colleges and sixth forms, so please come along whether your child is planning on attending on LaSWAP or is still undecided.
