Welcome to the start of the Pentecost Term. I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to you all at this strange time in which we are living.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many parents who have been in touch to show their appreciation to us as we remain open and strive to address any needs or concerns that our students and parents may have.

This is an unusual and hard time for us all, but especially for Year 11 and Year 13 students. I would like to reassure you that a systematic approach has been taken by ourselves within the Trust to provide forecast levels and grades as requested by the Dept for Education. We have been notified that exam results days will go ahead as normal and have been provisionally informed that they will be:

    • 13th August for A-Level
    • 22nd August for GCSE

Once these dates have been confirmed we will inform all relevant parties.

The full letter from Ofqual is available on the Academy website.

Mr Woodgate (Acting Associate Assistant Headteacher and Head of KS5) will be in contact with Year 11 students in the next few days to confirm offers for Sixth Form places and I am delighted to inform you, that if this is something that has not been considered previously, there is still an opportunity for students to apply.

For Sixth Form students we will be working on bridging projects to support transition to Further Education, more information regarding this will follow.

When accessing the Academy website, as well as subject resources, may I also draw your attention to the following tabs:

  • Wellbeing
  • Personal Development – this includes coverage of the use of careers programmes such as Unifrog and Money Matters
  • Safeguarding – should you need any support of that nature

If students have any concerns regarding accessing SharePoint resources or require hard copies of the work packs please do not hesitate to contact us.

For any technical support please contact the Academy using the following email address:

A Pentecost Term newsletter is currently being prepared and will follow over the next few days.

In this uncertain and strange time that we live in I would like to end my letter with the school prayer:

Oh holy Apostles Peter and Paul, intercede for us, protect O Lord your people who trust in the patronage of your Apostles, Peter and Paul, and by their constant protection, protect you people. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

May God bless you all.

Mrs R Le Caplain
