    I doubt anyone will be able to clear this up for me, but i'm starting Upper sixth tomorow, does anyone know the drill? I've been told you go in and start your timetable that day, other people have told me that we go in for interviews tomorow and start officialy on thursday and others have told me we don't even go in til thursday!

    I obviously know all the days will be different but whats the drill for everyone else? i even tried ringing school up but the women on reception didn't have a clue, neither have any of my friends?

    :rolleyes:

    If no-one has a clue I guess there is no problem as you're all in the same boat. Don't worry.

    If your friends aren't sure, just make sure you go in with them, then you won't look quite as silly. :p:

    We don't go back until the 7th,and everyone starts back on the same day, but as you've already said it varies from area to area. Also, I'm only starting AS Levels this year, so orry I'm not able to be much help. I would walk up anyway just to be sure - if the school has life you should be able to tell.
    From what you've said for the first two options you have to go in either way so that may be the best policy. Check on your school calandar if you have one.

    Hey,

    I've just gone back today, into the Upper Sixth. Obviously yeah, it's gonna be loads different at each sixth form but just thought I'd say what we did!

    First two lessons we were getting our timetables, and sorting out any problems with them (for example, I was still enrolled on all four of my AS courses, and I wanted to drop one of these at A2 and then take up an additional AS level this year). After that did some boring stuff (assembly etc) and then lessons started as normal at period three.

    Might as well just go in, or ring up the school when the office opens (it's usually around 8am) and ask!

    EDIT: Just read your post! Ignore the whole calling them up thing :rolleyes:

    At my school, everyone goes back tomorrow, but only the Year 7s, 9s and 12s start at the normal time (8.45). The Year 13s go back at 9.45 (including me, yay! ) and the Year 8s, 10s and 11s go back at some other times I don't know. We spend the morning in assembly, sorting out timetables etc and the afternoon in a lesson.

    I think you'll probably be starting back on the same day as the year 8s-11s...or atleast that's what happens at my school. The newbies (i.e. years 7 and 12) start on one day, and then everyone else returns the following day.

    Year 13 starts at 1:30pm at my school tomorrow. I imagine i'm going in to sort out form groups, collect my timetable and go home again?
