FXAspire is running for three days at the end of this Summer term, Monday 18 July to Wednesday 20 July 2016 and is one of the many 'out of classroom' learning opportunities that Felixstowe Academy offers. FXAspire is about fun, learning and opportunity. It gives staff and students the time to work and have fun together in a very different way. This builds and cements relationships, giving students a chance to see staff in a different light and likewise giving staff the opportunity to see students 'shine' at something they enjoy and often excel at.

What to do next?
We ask students to discuss the available pathways with their parent/carer and together select the top five pathways in order of preference by entering the pathway code and pathway name on the preference form. Please choose the pathways carefully as once allocated it will be unlikely students will be able to change. At this stage, we would advise that students discuss choices with friends to avoid any disappointment later in the process. 

Please return the completed preference form to Student Services by FRIDAY 26 FEBRUARY 2016. Ensure your form/envelope is marked with the date and time by staff when you hand it in as students will be allocated places on a first come first served basis.

Parent/Carers will need to pay the non-refundable deposit for students’ first choice of pathway (shown on the reverse of the preference form) via ParentPay, which initially will be set up showing all the pathway choices. Without this deposit your preference form will be returned to you and a place on one of your choices will not be allocated to you until it is resubmitted, following the ParentPay deposit payment. 

Please note, waiting until the final deadline will mean that many of the more popular pathways will have been filled so a prompt response is recommended.

Once students have been allocated a pathway, they will receive a letter to give further details of that pathway and suggested payment options for the remainder of the cost which will need to be paid via ParentPay. Should the student not get their first choice, the deposit will either be transferred or refunded depending on the cost of the pathway actually allocated.
