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).
We have been notified that from January 2017, due to contractual changes made between WYCA and the bus operators, TransDev products will no longer be able to be used on this bus service. This means that: KDays, KCards, KCardXtra, Go 12 KCard and Go 12 KCardXtra cannot be used. All customers, including students, will have to pay the appropriate cash fare or use MCard or MetroCard passes.
The Summer 2016 Exam Certificates have arrived in school. Therefore they are now available for collection from Main Reception.
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.
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).
On Tuesday 1st November, a group of Year 9 Engineering Students visited Explore Manufacturing in Worksop to see concrete walls being cast for the new school which is currently under construction on the school site. The last walls will be manufactured in Worksop by the end of November and the new school building will be erected by the end of December.
Until further notice students will need to collect their Maths homework from their class teacher.
