Post Certification Reviews
Your school is currently reviewing how final grades compared to those estimated and checking school based evidence that could support appeals. Pastoral staff are also aware of all outstanding College or University conditional offers and will consider Priority Post Certification Reviews where possible. School staff will contact you directly if they would like to appeal on your behalf.

SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM 2020-2021
We are now in the final week of online work and I am sure you are looking forward to a relaxing summer. Please see attached the 4th edition of the Online Newsletter. We would really appreciate if pupils could continue working up till the latter stages of the week in order to fully prepare them for August. The materials and instructions will remain in Google Classroom, but please note that staff will not be available throughout the summer holidays.
The work and effort at home from so many has been extraordinary and, on behalf of the staff, can I pass on my gratitude to you all under such testing times.

Please see below the 3rd Edition on our online newsletter. As we draw ever closer to the summer holidays, the temptation for your son/daughter to stop completing work may start to appear. The work carried out in the next two weeks will be pivotal to a smoother transition in August.
On behalf of the Pastoral Care department, can I pass on my thanks to all parents who continue to support learning from home under challenge circumstances.
NEWSLETTER – 15TH JUNE 2020
