Year 11 - Next Steps


Exams are cancelled - what will happen with my grades? There is a link to a useful document here - guidance for teachers, students, parents and carers:

Consultation - the Government has set up a consultation. The document is pretty heavy going but you can have your say here:

What school work should I still be doing?

Assuming you have signed up for a further education course at one of the local colleges you should continue to study for those subjects. I know that some of the colleges have emailed prospective students with some enrichment work - you can get in touch with them if unsure. Your subject teachers are still available to help guide you as well (there is a link to subject email addresses under the remote learning resources button on the school website homepage).
