Year 11 study leave

11 June 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

As we have reached the point where the majority of exams have now been completed, the Academy believes that your child would be best placed preparing for the remainder of exams at home.

This means that from today, Friday 8 June, there are no longer any timetabled lessons for Year 11 and your child should only attend the Academy for their exams, three Walking Talking Mocks and Prep Sessions which immediately precede an exam.

For the purposes of clarity, in addition to their individual exams, these are the only times when your child is required to attend the Academy:

• Monday 11 June between 15:45-17:00, this is for the Maths WTM
• Tuesday 12 June between 15:45-17:00, this is for the Chemistry WTM
• Wednesday 13 June from 07:45, this is for the Chemistry Prep Session
• Thursday 14 June between 13.30 – 15.30, this is for the Physics WTM
• Friday 15 June from 07:45, this is for the Physics Prep session.

Pupils must always attend the Academy in uniform and this covers the scheduled sessions above as well as their examinations. Similarly, may I also remind you that we expect pupils to be onsite by 08:30 for morning exams and 13:20 for afternoon exams.

Following the end of the exams period, I know you may wish to be reminded that the next diary date for you and your child will be Results Day, which will be on Thursday 23 August; a reminder that all school textbooks and library books must be returned in advance of results being collected, books can be left at any time with the Receptionists or the Librarian.

Finally, I would like to thank you on behalf of the Academy for your support throughout your child’s GCSE career with us and here’s to a good harvest on Results Day.

Yours faithfully

Mr Dami Ajagbonna
Deputy Head: E & S
