AS/A2 January Mock Exams
Our Post 16 Mock Exams are now complete. Thank you to all staff and students for your hard work.
Diagnose - Therapy - Test
Students now should have had specific diagnostic feedback to prepare for your exams in 16 weeks time. (13 without holidays!) Studying at home means higher grades in exams.
Staff: There will be an additional aspect in SIMs report marksheet which will allow staff to enter their students' mock grades (ABCDE) along side their fine predicted grade (B1, B2, B3) for Assessment point 3.
The results from the mocks will be used to inform the assessment point 3 report grade due on Thursday, 29th January 2015.
Assessment Point 3 Deadline: January 29th 2015 (All Sites)
Assessment point 3 closes on Thursday, 29th January 2015. This assessment point is to offer students a snapshot of progress towards their target grade. If there are any queries about this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The UCAS deadline is now closed. we are very happy to have supported around 167 students to apply to University across the Federation. This means 79% of current year 13 students have applied!
Well done and good luck to all!

Curriculum 2015 - 16 Educating a city: widening our curriculum offer
We want to make CLF Post 16 as accessible as we can for our students. Our curriculum offer therefore needs to widen. We are planning to run additional courses this year, such as AS Applied Law, a new STEM course and a new Drama and Music School. If staff are interested and have ideas about running new courses, please contact email@example.com
