Dear Parent/Carers of Year 11,
In January, we expect all of our Y11’s to go to York College on the STC day (17th January). Students need to enrol themselves onto this day. This is something we can support in school but can be done at home with you.
We fully appreciate that not everyone wants to go to York College, however this day is a really good opportunity for our students to experience another college environment, trial different subjects and be more independent through the day. They make their own way there, using the college coaches (free of charge on this day), or being dropped off by parents. This is organised through the application process.
To prepare students for this, please encourage them to look through a college prospectus (York if available), to learn about the difference courses and to consider their options for the day. They can also come and speak to Miss Webster at lunch or break to discuss the day, or any career/ life after Barlby queries.
The application process is now open and students can being to apply via the website; https://www.yorkcollege.ac.uk/events-calendar/year-11-taster-days.html
Or if they prefer a paper form, these are available from their form tutors.
With best wishes
Mrs K Wallace Vice Principal Curriculum and Achievement

Look at the goodies that staff (and one of my Year 9s!) have donated to Black Cat Rescue in North Duffield! Still time to contribute if you want to add to the food appeal! @Barlby_High pic.twitter.com/Mmjm…
Well done to all students involved in the 1st Peer Reading session today. It was lovely to see our YR10 mentors meet their YR7 readers, getting to know each other, helping to choose books & by the end of the session the group had read 98 pages. @Barlby_English @Barlby_High pic.twitter.com/as0V…
Reading2dogs @selbylibrary. A small group of students had a fantastic afternoon with Dora and everyone at Selby library as part of the Reading2dogs scheme. Plenty of time to explore all that the library has to offer. @Barlby_High @Barlby_English pic.twitter.com/ucng…
