Year 11 Study Leave Arrangements

12th June 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to take this opportunity to let you know about the arrangements we have made for Year 11 for the rest of the examination period.

Starting on Tuesday 13th June students will no longer be expected to attend school full time. They will however be expected to attend both their examinations and any revision sessions for subjects they are still to complete. I have included details of the revision sessions for the remainder of this term below.

Details of all examinations will be available through the academy website. Please note that once the examination period has finished, some students could still be invited in to school to complete outstanding work for BTEC / NCFE courses. Failure to complete these courses may incur costs in the same way as failure to attend an examination does.

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) will be available for students to revise in at all times during the examination period. This will allow students who would prefer to revise in school to have a quiet area with computer facilities available. If students do wish to take advantage of the LRC they must bring revision materials in with them so that they are able to use their time productively. Students who still want to use the school buses should use the LRC before or after exams so they have somewhere to work before getting their transport home. Session 6 will continue to run in the LRC, so students can catch the late bus at 4:15pm.

We are still required to maintain accurate records of students on site for health & safety reasons. Consequently, students should attend registration as normal if possible. If they arrive in school after this time then they MUST sign in BEFORE going to any lessons. There will be a folder in the LRC for them to do this. If students leave the site, then they MUST sign out in the same place.

We are looking forward to having a very successful results day in August. If you have any questions about these arrangements, please do not hesitate to contact me at school.

Yours faithfully


Marc Jordan

Assistant Vice Principal
