Important information about coronavirus (covid-19) and travel during half term (from Cherie Levi RGN, Lead School Nurse)
For anyone travelling during half term or returning from an area at risk, we sent an email earlier in the week to highlight advice from both Public Health England and the Foreign Office.  
If you experience any symptoms (eg. fever, cough, shortness of breath), no matter how mild, you should self isolate and contact the NHS on 111. 
Please also follow any advice you receive at ports of entry into the UK.
We wish you an enjoyable and safe holiday. Please feel free to email Cherie Levi at if you need further help.

Sixth Form Mock Exams Monday 24 February to Friday 28 February
Mock exams for Sixth Form will be taking place from Monday 24 February all week until Friday 28 February. Exams will mainly take place in the Main Hall at College Avenue. Morning exams begin at 9.15am and afternoon exams at 1.45pm although exams on Wednesday morning will begin at 9am and Friday afternoon exams will begin at 1.30pm. There will be no exams on the afternoon of Wednesday 26 February so that students may go to games afternoon. Normal lessons will be taking place all week for students when they do not have exams. There are 60 exams for 460 students taking place in the week so inevitably, some students will have clashes. We have tried to identify any clashes with the help of the students and rearrange any exams for them. The mock exam timetable has been emailed to both students and parents. Students have also received the mock week arrangements information sheet which should answer their questions on the week and exams. 

Summer exam timetables
Year 13 have today received their A level and BTEC summer exam timetables. Please can they be kept in a safe place and the exams, dates and times duly noted. Year 12 students who are taking external exams this summer have also received their summer exam timetable today. Any absent students may collect theirs after the holidays.
Young Walter Scott Prize 2019
Year 13, Ciara Griffiths, entered the Young Walter Scott prize for aspiring young historical novelists with her story “The Laird of Astermoor”. Whilst she didn’t win, the judges were most impressed by her entry which was well structured and dramatic, with its details of Scottish history and invented landscapes. The judges hope she will continue to enjoy her writing and perhaps even enter again next year. Well done, Ciara!
