On Thursday 30th March there will be a Pathways Information Evening for parents and students. This will begin with a presentation at 6.00pm and an opportunity to discuss courses with teachers from each subject area. After the presentation there will be an opportunity for you to attend the subject market across school to find out more about the courses on offer. The evening will close at 8 pm.
Please click here for a copy of the letter that was sent out on Friday 10th March. The Pathways booklet and the Pathways form have already been sent out to you, together with your child’s Rising Stars information.

Consultation on the Post 16 Transport Policy Statement for Learners Aged 16 -18 in Further Education and Continuing Learners Aged 19 - 24
Bradford Council has a duty to consult with affected stakeholders on its proposed Post 16 Transport Policy Statement for 2017/2018. It is therefore consulting with young people aged 16 -18 and their parents/carers and young people aged 19 - 24 with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and their parents/carers. This consultation will end on 8th May 2017. Full details on the consultation process and how you can take part are enclosed within the two documents below.

The Summer 2016 Exam Certificates have arrived in school. Therefore they are now available for collection from Main Reception.
A mixture of year 11 and year 12 students attended an Open Day at Trinity University, Leeds, last Friday to experience life as university students. Students were shown around the campus, including the accommodation, library, and their impressive media facilities (which included the chance to be camera operators).
As you may already be aware there are significant changes being made nationally to the way that students are assessed at all key stages. One of these changes is to move GCSE grades from letters (A*-G) to numbers (9-1). “Drop in” sessions will be provided at Parents Consultation Evening on 16th November 2016 to answer any questions that you may have about this change.
These changes are being phased in from 2017 for all students over the next three years and will apply to different courses at different times (see the attached PDF for a full explanation and a breakdown of which courses/year groups are affected and when).
We anticipate that school will be closed to students for an additional week at the Easter 2018 holiday, in order to enable the move from the old school to the new school to take place. Information about the exact dates will be notified to parents as soon as it is available.
Until further notice students will need to collect their Maths homework from their class teacher.
