SIXTH FORM

FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM

Welcome back after a productive break during which many students have been revising hard, both at home and in the revision sessions held at school. We are now into the final lessons and we encourage students to make the best of these last few days to get as much advice as they can from their teachers, and practise examination technique and questions. There will be a special assembly next Friday morning to make sure all students are aware of the arrangemnets for exams. Can we ask you to ensure your son or daughter arrives in time for this assembly, and we will also send you the information by email to keep for reference.

Mrs Rogers and Mr Giles

TUTOR GROUP QUIZ FINAL

Well done to 13SAL who triumphed on Thursday lunchtime by just half a point to 12JRS and a few more to 12JCP. It was an intensely fought battle between the groups, especially the last round when either of the leading groups could have taken the title. A a student was overheard to say 'how do they know all that stuff?'
