  • Easter School

    Published 12/03/20

    Dear Parents/Guardians


    As you know revision lessons have been taking place, on Saturday mornings, for examination subjects. We have been very pleased with the response, and many pupils are realising how worthwhile and enjoyable these sessions are. The sessions will continue until the exams as indicated in the Saturday School Booklet.


    A further programme of revision will take place during the Easter break. This has become an established part of our calendar and it has proved to be both a beneficial and pleasant way of preparing for the final exams.


    It is the expectation that pupils commit themselves to a full programme of events that is relevant to the subjects which they are taking, unless there is a very good reason why they cannot attend on a particular day. Your child’s subject teachers will also talk to them about their need to attend particular classes.


    I have explained the timetable to pupils in assembly in order that they understand the importance of this programme.


    We ask pupils to pay a deposit of £10 that will be returned if all sessions are attended. To reward their efforts we will, in addition, give each pupil a free lunch and drinks and refreshments will be available every day.


    Each time a pupil attends a session, parents will be notified by text and pupils will be awarded with a merit for each session that they attend.
    In the event of poor weather or any other necessary cancellation, you will be notified on the school website or by text from the school only.


    We are very grateful for parental support with this initiative and know, based upon previous experience, that pupils opting to do booster classes will achieve much better results in August. Places are limited so early replies are necessary and places will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.


    Yours sincerely


    S Paige

    Principal
