Dear Parent, Carer and Student
During this difficult and uncertain period I will use this homepage to pass on some key messages. I will also use the news items for more detailed information. Please check the website regularly for updates.
We have added another opportunity for collecting uniform on Thursday 13th August from 2pm. We will also be open on 3rd and 4th September. Please go to North Site reception.
The letter emailed home about September is in the News section. Additional details will be sent home towards the end of August.
Several parents have enquired about the College setting work to be completed over the summer break. My personal opinion is that students, staff and parents deserve a break for a few weeks, so that we can rest up and be refreshed ready for the next year. However, in response to those requests I have placed a document in the latest news section, with links to sequences of online lessons for a range of subjects. I must emphasise that completion of these lessons is optional.
Latest guidance for Parents from the Department for Education (26th June)
There is a lot of support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
Thinkyouknow (advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online)
Internet matters (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
Parent info (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
LGfL (support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online)
Net-aware (support for parents and careers from the NSPCC)
The College has submitted all Centre Assessment Grades to examination boards. This was a difficult process but we approached it with integrity, in line with the guidance. This data will now be standardised by Ofqual and the grades submitted by the College may be amended in line with their statistical models.
A level results day is on 13th August and GCSE results day on 20th August. These will operate via appointment. Information has been sent out with details of these days and the options available to students.
There are some additional home learning resources here that may be of use > link.
