Case Study: Sixth Form Planner for Ashville College

October 18, 2017 Mike Spruce

The School

Ashville College is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 - 18 years old based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Ashville provides pupil planners for students from Year 3 up to Sixth Form. Feedback from Sixth Form pupils highlighted that their requirements for homework planners are different to those lower down the school. Sixth Formers study fewer subjects but require more space to record information. They also require very specific information to support them in making decisions for life after Sixth Form.

The School Planner

In conjunction with Ashville College’s marketing team, we produced a larger planner (B5) with homework pages designed for a smaller number of subjects. The planner also includes information specific to Post-16-year-old students: information on applying to university, Gap Year advice and even a section on Learning to Drive.

Other valuable resources include:

  • UCAS Calendar and Tariff Points
  • Numeric keypad codes for accented characters
  • Key dates and deadlines
  • Shaded in / removed days-off to reduce bulk
  • School day routine outline
  • School regulations and policies (such as school uniform rules)
  • List of useful websites

The Impact

“The B5 size planner has been well received by our Sixth Formers. Working with School Diaries was a pleasure. They listened to our requirements and offered solutions and a way of working that was simple and efficient. I supplied the artwork and their proofing and sign off process was easy to use and the turnaround was very quick.” - Corinne Dickson
