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 Results Card issued to parents today. These results will help Mrs Rogers to finalise UCAS predicted grades for university entrance.
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.
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.
PwC Flying Start Degree Programmes
PwC are delighted to let you know that they have now opened their Flying Start opportunities for our 2022 intake.
On a Flying Start degree programme, students will have the opportunity to go to university and start their career at the same time. They’ll get to work with world-class clients and be part of some highly skilled teams. Studying at university they’ll get to experience the full-time student lifestyle but with integrated paid placements at PwC, they’ll have some money to enjoy it too. They’ll gain a degree, and hopefully impress them enough to secure a graduate job after they graduate.
If you want to find out more about the programme and join the upcoming session in the Virtual Park; sign up here. You can also find out more about the programme on the website and students can apply here.
InvestIN - Careers Evenings for parents
InvestIN is running a series of bespoke, free-of-charge events for parents specifically designed to help you enhance your son or daughter’s career potential.

Also available are immersive weekend experiences in nine careers relating to Law, Business and Politics. Learn from top criminal barristers, investment bankers, MPs, management consultants, corporate lawyers, United Nations staff and more.

You can register for the events here.
