Year 11 Summer Term Information



22-04-20

Dear Year 11 Students,

We hope you and your families are well.  We are mindful that your studies have come to an abrupt end and that you have much uncertainty around your grades and your next steps, but please remember that you are not alone in this. Every Year 11 student has been impacted by the current pandemic across the world.

Please read through points 1 – 4 and make sure that you complete the form linked in section 2.

1. Fantastic Opportunity

Eton College is a prestigious college that was founded in 1440 by Henry VI.  Eton has had some well known students in the past such as Prince William, Boris Johnson, Bear Grylls and Eddie Redmayne. As part of their outreach to public schools they have offered all students a free self-study course to support their next steps for education or employment.
Mr Hogarth will be your first point of contact with queries and he will be letting you know further details.

Here is  a link to the College – https://www.etoncollege.com/

I have had a look at the course and it is packed full of useful videos and information; this should take you between 7 – 10 hours of self-study.  As mentioned all secondary schools have been offered this opportunity, so please do take advantage of it and put yourself ahead. 

2. Updates on Exams

Some of you have asked when you will get your results.  The results will be published on 20th August as originally planned, we cannot say how they will be shared with you as yet, but please make sure that we have your up to date contact details. 

Please complete this form by the end of this week. The information will be used to send you exams or college information.

Notice re exams for Y11 students

Dear Students,

Please read the following letter sent out by Ofqual today (3rd April 2020). Please read this carefully and pay particular attention to the following sections:  Do I need to complete any new work for my school/college to submit a grade? 
Your school or college is not required to set additional mock exams or homework for your centre assessment grade, and you won’t be disadvantaged if you were not set, or were unable to complete, any work given out after schools were closed.   

Can I see the grades my school/college submits for me? No, this information will be confidential. Please don’t ask your teachers, or anyone else at your school or college, to tell you the grades they will be sending to the exam boards or where they have placed you in the order of students; they will not be allowed to share this with you.   
When will I get my results? We’re working hard to get results out as soon as is possible – results won’t be delayed after the dates they were expected in August, and ideally they will be issued a little earlier, so you can have the certainty you need. 
Can I take my exams another time? We are working with exam boards to offer additional exams in the autumn term as soon as it is possible to do so. We’ll let you know about these in the coming weeks.   

Please be assured that we will continue to do our best for you to ensure that your outcomes reflect the work you have done.
Keep well and be safe,

Mrs. Stubbs
Deputy Headteacher – Outcomes and Teacher Standards
