Year 13 Letter February 2019
Dear Parent / Carer
We are now over half-way through the 2018-19 academic year, and students in Year 13 have completed their mock examinations. They are currently receiving the results of these assessments in their lessons, and we would like to draw your attention to the information below as our students move forward to the final critical stages of their time with us.
Year 13 Review Evening:
We would like to invite you to the second review evening of the year, which will take place in the main school halls on:
- Wednesday 13 March 2019: 5:30pm – 8:00pm
This will provide an excellent opportunity for you to speak to curriculum staff regarding progress and any concerns that you may have. Students have been provided with appointment sheets so that they can make appointments with their individual subject teachers.
Year 13 Examination Information:
Our Year 13 students are now at a crucial stage of their schooling, as they begin final preparations for their A Level examinations. They are expected to attend College every day until they commence study leave on Friday 24th May. The following information may help you to support them through the rigours and demands of the remaining months.
Students have now been provided with their individual examination timetables, and the examination period is set to run between Monday 13th May and Wednesday 19th June 2019. Students must attend all examinations they are entered for – if they fail to do so they will be charged the appropriate examination entrance fees unless a medical certificate is provided. In missing an examination, students also run an extremely high risk of achieving a 'U' grade overall.
In the unlikely event of any student engaging in unacceptable behaviour or disruption to A Level lessons in the run up to the final examinations, he/she will not be permitted to sit their A Level examinations at this centre.
As we approach the final examinations, curriculum areas are offering students frequent opportunities to undertake additional revision beyond timetabled lessons. We strongly advise all students to take advantage of this additional support in order to maximise their chances of achieving the best possible results. Please contact subject staff and curriculum leaders should you require further information on when these sessions take place, which may be before, during or after the normal college day.
We would like to thank you for your support so far this year, and look forward to working with you over the coming months. Our commitment to supporting all of our students to achieve the best possible outcomes is absolute, and we would encourage you to get in touch with us at the college should you have any queries or concerns.
