Year 11 Leavers

Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Year 11 Examination and Masterclass Timetable

Following the completion of over 75% of their Summer Examinations, your child will now move onto an Examination and Masterclass timetable from Wednesday 12th June. 

Students will only be required to attend the academy for examinations and masterclasses. Mr Brewer will continue to add daily schedules in the Year 11 Google Classroom to ensure students are fully informed about examination and masterclass requirements.

At the end of an examination or masterclass, students will be dismissed from the academy site to continue independent study at home as per their individual timetable. Students must attend the academy in full uniform, as well as bring all learning materials and their fully charged Chromebook to masterclass sessions.

The final whole cohort Year 11 examination (Physics) will take place at 1:00pm on Friday 14th June. As per the letter sent on Monday 3rd June, please ensure that your child returns their Chromebook as per the details laid out in the letter. Please note that if a student fails to return their loan Chromebook then they won’t be allowed into the Leavers Assembly on Friday 21st June.

Year 11 Leavers Assembly

We are all looking forward to welcoming Year 11 back to the academy on Friday 21st  June for their Year 11 Leavers’ Assembly. We have taken the decision to have one assembly for the whole year group (rather than in Colleges) so we can celebrate as a wider community the successes and memories of the past 5 years. Students need to maintain our high standards of behaviour in order to be able to attend.

The schedule for Friday 21st June will be as follows:

  • 8.00 – 8.30am: Arrive at the academy and make their way to the basketball courts next to the sports hall. Students will remain there until a member of college SLT escorts them up to their college at 8.30am. This is an opportunity to mix with Year 11 students from all Colleges to sign shirts/books etc.
  • 8.30 – 8.50am: Signing shirts (spare ones, not the one they are wearing) and light refreshments. Students will  remain in their college rooms until the assembly begins at 8.50am 
  • 8.50am: Students put their college graduation gowns on and make their way to the Lecture Theatre 
  • 9.00 – 9.40am: Leavers assembly in the Lecture Theatre
  • 9.40am: Photos in the quad and final goodbyes
  • 9.50am: Graduation gowns returned to the Lecture Theatre and students make their way off site before period 2/break starts at 10.00am

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 – it looks tidier and they get a clean, unworn shirt to keep 
  • Photos will be allowed on mobile phones on the basketball court, quad and in college rooms only
  • Behaviour expectations still need to be respected and students will leave site immediately if they are not upheld
  • If a student hasn’t returned their Chromebook which has been loaned to them by the academy then they won’t be allowed in for the assembly
  • Parents/Students can email school photos to Mr Shepherd in advance to be included in the assembly slides

Yours sincerely
