Contacting the Sixth Form
If you need to report an absence for your son or daughter or contact Sixth Form, please call 01628 327560. Please add this number to your contacts so you don't contact Senior Girls or Senior Boys in error as this often delays messages getting to the correct place. Alternatively, please email both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Many thanks in advance.
Year 12 Subject Reviews & Parents’ Evening
Year 12 subject review assessments have been taking place during lessons this week. Subject teachers and the Sixth Form team will review the Year 12 results which will help indicate final A level and BTEC subject choices for the students. Year 12 Parents’ Evening will be on Thursday 7 October and a letter has been sent to all parents regarding the evening.
Year 13 Parents Evening - Monday 11 October
Year 13 Parents’ Evening will be on Monday 11 October - please note the date. The grades from the recent Year 13 Internal exams will be published on a Grade Card issued to parents before Parents’ evening. These results will help Mrs Rogers to finalise UCAS predicted grades for university entrance.
LFT regular testing and PCR
Please may we remind parents that Sixth Form students should be taking regular LF tests - ideally twice a week. Please remember LFTs are for asymptomatic testing only. If your student is displaying any of three main covid symptoms (temperature, cough or loss of smell), they must take a PCR test and should not come into school until you have received the results. Please do inform the school of PCR results once received.
