At CBS your needs will be catered for in every respect. Your success is our priority. We expect that our pupils will respect such privileges and work in tandem with us to maintain and improve upon our current position. Pupils returning will be expected to display a responsible attitude and to display high levels of reliability, politeness, punctuality and respect. You will be the example that others look up to and with that comes responsibility. Should any pupil fail to meet this expectation his position within the school will be subject to review.

“Sixth Year at CBS was brilliant. The boys from other schools really mixed in well and by the end of our A Level and other exams it was sad to have to leave the school. I’m going into my second year of university and I still miss the school, the teachers and the craic. It was a very special place for us all.”

Paul McCann (Ulster University Student)

“CBS is more than a school, it is a community. It cares not only about education, but about the wellbeing and interests of all its pupils. CBS has given me so many opportunities. I have been able to work with the BBC UTV and RTE which has helped guide me towards a career. I have seen the wonders of India through our Immersion Programme and worked in a Thai Orphanage which has been one the highlights of my life” N. Gormley ( Past Pupil)

Introduction to Alternative Courses BTEC’s are new awards introduced by Christian Brothers’ School in partnership with Further Education Institutions to assist the transition in to Further -Higher Education. Parents and students should consider that these new BTEC awards have equal status to the traditional A Level programmes. The main differences between the A Level programme and the BTEC programme is that BTEC’s provide for a skills based approach in which, the knowledge content is applied to a “real” work based scenario potentially making the learning more relevant to the individual student. Currently our school offers BTEC’s at KS4 and SK5.

Meet with the principal or a member of senior management before entry is approved 3. Meet the academic criteria 4. Be committed to the school ethos and be prepared to meet the expectations we require from sixth form pupils.

A commitment to CBS We expect you to set the standards, not just in our school, but in the wider community. You will be expected to become leaders within the school. Younger children will look upon you as an example and your teachers will expect excellence in all aspects of your schooling. CBS is a school we are all proud of and by joining our sixth form you will be making a commitment to working towards, not just your own personal goals, but also our goals as a school. As a school community we have worked hard for five years with you to overcome many obstacles. Now, as you decide on your future, you must consider all your options and decide what is best for you. For over 30 years our pupils have beaten all the odds to become leaders that we can all be proud of. Our school has always played a major role in the lives of the pupils and now this will be greatly extended through our increased curriculum programme, our links with FE and University, our links to the local community and finally our collaboration and partnership with other schools. We look forward to the challenge. CBS has set high standards for others to follow because we have a belief that our students and community can meet those standards and not accept second best.

Code of Conduct “Like everything in life, unless there are rules, nothing can work properly.” The school is a community which requires some regulations. To you students who have decided to continue your education here in CBS and also to those of you who have come from other schools to join our sixth form we ask that you abide by the following code of conduct. The school day begins at 8:55 a.m., and you are expected to be present then for registration. You are also expected to be present for afternoon registration, and may not leave for home study until after this time unless you have special permission from your form tutor. You are expected to bring a note written by your parent/guardian to explain any absence. Try to make routine medical and dental appointments at time outside the school day. You may not book driving lessons during school time. Please avoid booking family holidays during term times as teachers cannot undertake the additional work involved in going over work with you, on an individual basis, if you have missed teaching while you have been on holiday. While we have to reluctantly agree to your parents’ wishes for family holidays, permission will not be given for you to go on holiday with friends. If you are persistently absent (and/or late) without good reason your tutor will give you a warning. If the situation continues we will write to your parents and require that you sign a contract which sets a target for attendance (and/or punctuality) as a condition of you remaining in Christian Brothers’ Sixth Form. Christian Brothers’ Sixth Form has a dress code. If your dress is inappropriate, you will be sent home to change. You are responsible for your school work and will be expected to develop good working patterns so that you can meet the deadlines set by staff. Your tutor and heads of subject departments will be informed if there are problems. If you fall behind, or feel overwhelmed by work, discuss this

33


with your tutor who will try to help you to rectify the situation and negotiate with members of staff. Some deadlines for coursework are non-negotiable and staff cannot mark work after deadlines for assignments which form part of final AS/A’ level assessments, have passed. Think carefully about commitments to paid employment outside school, making sure you leave yourself some time for socialising and relaxation. You must not undertake paid employment during the school day, even if it is a home study time. As a 6th Form Student some of your classes might start and finish at times outside the normal school day or week. It is in your interest to be aware of the course structure and your responsibility to attend all classes punctually. Radios and MP3 players may only be played during break times. Machines playing during lesson times will be removed. You may not leave school during the day without informing your tutor. If you are ill and cannot find your tutor, you should see the Director of Sixth Form, Head of Year 12 or 13, the Head teacher or one of the Deputy Heads. You are responsible for your money and valuables. Try to maintain a pleasant, tidy environment in the tutor bases. Eating is strictly prohibited in the Library or Sixth Form Study Room. You may not, under any circumstances, bring alcohol, any classified or potentially dangerous substance or object onto school premises. Mobile phones must be switched off during lesson times. Phones which ring during lesson times will be confiscated by any member of staff. Sixth Formers are required to sign the school’s Internet Code which emphasises responsible use of this facility in the school for educational purposes. We expect Sixth Formers to be prepared to be involved in the life of the school and there are several events during the year when we will need the help of every member of Year 13 and 14.
