Dear Parents/Carers,

We are all looking forward to welcoming Year 11 back to the academy this Thursday for their Leavers Assembly.  As previously mentioned in our communication with you, the date of the 24th June was chosen due to the planned lifting of restrictions on 21st June, and would therefore enable us to plan the event with reduced COVID-19 secure measures in place.  However, due to the delay in restrictions being lifted, the ongoing rise in COVID-19 cases and the guidance in place from the government, we are adapting the event to make it a safer environment for all, but hopefully still a memorable one for this fantastic year group.  With all of this in mind, each college will have their own separate leavers event and the schedule for the day will therefore operate as follows:

Year 11 Chaucer
10.00am Arrive at the academy and gather on the tennis courts.  Students will be met there by a member of SLT and invited into the building via the doors at the bottom of the Brunel / Da Vinci stairwell.
10.00am – 10.30am Opportunity for photos, shirt signing and refreshments in B1.06a/b
10.30am – 11.00am Assembly with leavers video in the Lecture Theatre.  Students are free to leave after the assembly.

 

Year 11 Darwin

11.00am – 11.30am Assembly with leavers video in the Lecture Theatre.  Students are free to leave after the assembly.

 

Year 11 Brunel

11.00am – 11.30am Opportunity for photos, shirt signing and refreshments in B1.06a/b
11.30am – 12.00pm Assembly with leavers video in the Lecture Theatre.  Students are free to leave after the assembly.

 

Year 11 Da Vinci
11.30am Arrive at the academy and gather on the tennis courts.  Students will be met there by a member of SLT and invited into the building via the doors at the bottom of the Brunel / Da Vinci stairwell.
11.30am – 12.00pm Opportunity for photos, shirt signing and refreshments in B1.06a/b
12.00pm – 12.30pm Assembly with leavers video in the Lecture Theatre.  Students are free to leave after the assembly.

 

Please note the following important points for the day:

  • Students should all arrive in academy uniform.
  • Students to bring in spare shirts for signing rather than sign the clothes they are wearing in order to limit contact.
  • Upon finishing the assembly, students will need to leave site immediately via the PE gate to allow the next college to start their assembly.
  • Photos will be allowed on mobile phones on the Brunel plaza only.
  • Behaviour expectations still need to be respected and students will leave site immediately if they are not upheld.
  • Any student who still hasn’t returned their Chromebook should bring it in on Thursday. Failure to do so will result in them not being allowed into the academy.
  • Face masks are to be worn around the building and in the Lecture Theatre.

Please do ensure your son/daughter sticks to the times for their college indicated above and I look forward to seeing them all for the final chapter of Year 11 this Thursday.

Yours faithfully,

Mr K Brewer

Head of College

Leading on Year 11
