|Dates to Note|
Last day of the school year:
Summer Sports Camp (to be confirmed)
This academic year ends on Friday 3rd July and the next academic year begins on Thursday 27th August 2020. By that time, the school should be functioning normally again. However, for the end of this academic year, we will have special arrangements that are designed to be fair to all our families affected by the pandemic and also minimise the spread of infection. Parents will receive details of our plans to re-open campus this term if and when the government allows it.
Examinations: Despite the circumstances, teachers will have completed the syllabus for core subjects by the end of this term. However, formal assessments are clearly impractical in the circumstances. Therefore, all students will receive a Certificate of Completion and will progress to the next class on the basis of achievements in school August 2019-April 2020 and at home April-July 2020. Assessments will take place at the beginning of the next academic year to confirm this. Any students identified as not being ready for the new class will receive the necessary intervention and support to allow them to catch up quickly. Repeating the previous class would only be recommended in consultation with parents. There will be PTCs at school on Friday 3rd July so parents have the opportunity to meet with teachers.
Graduation: Large public gatherings should be avoided so any graduation would be marked at the start of the new academic year, as students begin the next stage of their school career.
IGCSE Subject Options: There will be an information evening presentation for current Year 9 students & parents at the beginning of the new academic year before making their choice of IGCSE subjects to study in Year 10.
