Important information for students and parents/guardians.
The College has moved to online teaching.
The Government closed schools and further education colleges from Friday 20 March to prevent the spread of the Coronovirus disease. In line with the current status of ‘lock down’ this closure is highly likely to be extended for some time and we advise students and their families to check this website page and our social media channels regularly for the latest updates.
Our summer exams, GCSE, Vocational and A Level will now no longer go ahead in May/June. The DfE have produced an FAQ document which you can access here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-cancellation-of-gcses-as-and-a-levels-in-2020. The overall message is that your results are going to be largely based on teacher assessment. You should be reassured that your teachers are the best placed professionals to make an assessment of your ability in your subjects; they have a wealth of assessment information upon which to make an accurate judgement. Please see the FAQs below for further information on how this will happen.
These are very difficult times for everyone. Our primary concern is always the wellbeing of our students and staff, especially those most vulnerable, who we continue to make special arrangements for and work closely with to ensure ongoing support.
We strongly encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance for ‘lock down’ and to remain in self isolation.
We understand that this is a concerning time, and if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We will update this page regularly with more information as it becomes available.
