  • 26-05-2017 - Arrangements for Year 11 - 5 June onwards

    Dear Parent/Carer

    I am writing to clarify some of the arrangements the school has put in place to support your son or daughter through the GCSE examinations. Pupils and parents often ask the school about study leave and, as a school, we prefer to continue to provide pupils with the support of their teachers and the facilities for as long as possible.  Outstanding results in recent years suggests our approach works.

    This year, the school has designed a programme of lessons for each student that ensures they have dedicated time with specialist teachers before each of their remaining exams. The timetable on the link below explains what lessons your child will have for the week beginning 5th June, and the classrooms to which they should report.  The schedule includes ‘Home Study’ sessions which give students who have finished particular courses permission to undertake private study at home. 

    The Library will also be available for any pupil who prefers to study at school during these sessions. Pupils who choose to leave school for a ‘Home Study’ session should sign out at the Library, they should not wander around the school or hang around in the local community.  We believe that these flexible arrangements ensure that pupils can still have access to their teachers for support and guidance and can continue to use the school facilities in a way that suits each individual. 

    Full school uniform must be worn throughout the week and for all examinations. If they have any questions, it is very important that they speak to their teachers.  If they have lost any examination information they must see the Examinations Officer as soon as possible.

    On the day of the last big exam, Friday 16th June, there will be a special treat for all Year 11 students that their teachers are currently preparing.  We hope that this one-off event goes some way to show the pupils how proud we all are of their efforts this year.

    I would like to take this opportunity to wish all pupils well in the coming examinations and thank all parents for their support. I am looking forward to a record breaking set of results this summer.

    Yours faithfully

    Mr S Cox

    Headteacher

  • 05-05-2017 - Fiddle Toys and Spinners

    Dear Parent/Carer

    As I am sure you are aware there is currently a new craze amongst children.  Fiddle toys and spinners are becoming more and more popular.  At this stage we are not planning to ban these from our school, but evidence suggests that they are beginning to disrupt teaching and learning.

    From today I have asked staff to confiscate fiddle toys and spinners if they disturb a lesson.  They will then be ready for parents to collect from the main school office.  Thank you for your support.

    Yours faithfully

     

    Mr S Cox
