Welcome to Year 11 from Acting Head of Year, Mr E Walker.

As we are entering the final phase of our journey in KS4 I ask all Year 11 students and parents to plan carefully for the forthcoming exam series which starts in May. Our first written exam will take place on the Tuesday 16 May and students should be preparing for these now. We have had some exciting events and interventions recently including the core residentials in Kent. These have now come to an end but Saturday school for maths and science organised by Mr Jagede and Mr Hartley and Mr Ainscough will continue next term. Please keep your eyes open for further opportunities that will arise.

We would like to invite all Year 11 parents to our final parents evening on Wednesday 19 April. This is the last opportunity you will have to discuss the progress of your child as we move into these key few weeks. The evening represents the best chance to affect progress at this stage. We look forward to seeing you there and hope you are able to see all your child’s teachers.

As an aside to the demands of the exams the prefect team and I are busy organising both the leavers’ prom and the leavers’ hoodies and yearbook.  The prom will take place on Thursday 29 June.  Further details of pricing for all three will be available shortly.

Finally, I would like to thank the Year team for their unceasing hard work this year and I wish them all the best for the coming few weeks.

Please complete this short survey about the Year 11 interventions.
