Please find below Nailsea School requirements regarding course requests.
Nailsea School plan the timetable in the light of course requests as submitted on 3 December, aiming to
minimize conflicts between particular combinations of subjects. You will be told as soon as possible if
your initial requests cannot be met. However, we recognize that there may be changes of mind up to
September, especially after GCSE results. If you do change your initial course requests, please email Mr.
Reddiford, Head of Sixth Form, Nailsea School as soon as possible JReddiford@nailseaschool.com
We cannot guarantee to meet late requests or to find places on courses which are already full, so priority
will go to those who opt in December and meet exam requirements, rather than those who make later
Please Note Students who do not achieve a 4 in either English language or literature will need to re-take
English language. Likewise, students who do not achieve a 4 in Maths will need to re-take. Provision is
made for this.
An entry in this prospectus is not a guarantee that a course will definitely run from September 2020 or
that all combinations of courses will be possible. Like all Sixth Forms, we must relate student numbers
to an efficient use of teaching time. We plan the timetable to meet as many course choices as we can,
and we will inform you promptly if a given subject or combination of subjects appears impossible.
If a course is undersubscribed, rather than not running it, we will seek to run the course in conjunction
with another provider.
