Parking

Parking at the end of the school is causing a few parking violations, please could I remind you to park considerately, avoiding bumping up on the kerb and blocking the public footpath as this is causing pedestrians to venture into the road with pushchairs and young children.  We appreciate that Christmas is a busy and hectic time for us all but the safety of all our students and local residents is paramount.

Post 16 Application Process

Dear Parent/Carer, 

Many thanks for supporting your child through the post 16 application process. I have received lists from all our local providers informing me of which pupils have applied to their college and for which courses. Each application will be looked at by the colleges and interviews will take place in school, in February/March, with the exception of Newman College who invite pupils to the college campus for their interview. I shall be in touch nearer the time with further information and details of a support session to help and reassure pupils prior to their interview. 

In the meantime, please encourage your child to engage in a revision programme and work hard to ensure they achieve their potential with their GCSEs and also meet the requirements of the course/s they have applied for. 

Unfortunately, there still are a small number of pupils who are yet to submit a post 16 application. I encourage those pupils to do so as soon as possible to avoid missing out on a place at their college and course of choice. I will continue to chase these pupils up until they do have an application submitted. Any pupils, parent/carers who would like further help or support should contact me as soon as possible. 

Thank you again for your support and very best wishes for a happy and holy Christmas.

Mrs Pilling
