As your son/daughter has now moved into their final year at Vale of York Academy, we've put together some key dates that you need to be aware of so that the students can make informed choices about their post-16 education and examinations.
GCSE – Mock Examinations
These will take place from Monday 13 – Friday 24 November 2017.
Open Evenings – Post-16 education
Open evenings are held each autumn for prospective parents/carers and students to attend and view post-16 schools and colleges.
Year 11 students and their parents are advised to view these schools and colleges on these evenings before making an application for a place in Year 12.
Visit the Post-16 providers and try out the subject lessons that you are interested in studying. There are usually two days in January – dates for 2018 are still to be confirmed. Students from Vale of York will be encouraged to participate in these visits so they can further make informed judgements about their future.
