Year 11 FAQs

Will we still have a prom?

Yes but we cannot give you a date yet due to the current situation with COVID-19. We will try our best to ensure that it takes place before Christmas 2020.

Are we still having a Yearbook?

Unfortunately, due to the exceptional circumstances we are currently in, there will be no Yearbook this year. Please accept our apologies.

Are we still getting our hoodies?

If you placed an order with payment before the 27th March, then yes you will receive your hoodie. We are expecting hoodies to be ready in mid-late June – around the time exams would have finished. At this time we are uncertain whether they will be available for collection from school or if they will be posted directly to your home. We will update you closer to the time.

I was self-isolating during the last day of school, can I see the Class of 2020 Leavers Presentation?

We were incredibly sad not to have shared a proper goodbye with you all and we hope that we will be able to celebrate at a later date. In the meantime, we are happy to share these memories with you.

Shine: Shine are offering ‘An Introduction to Higher Education’ which will launch on Tuesday 14th April 2020. This online project will involve interactive activities specifically designed for Year 7 to Year 11 pupils to explore their aspirations and support their journey towards higher education. We hope this will provide a motivational project for your pupils to take part in while out of school and learning from home.

Every Tuesday, the webpage will be updated with new interactive and engaging content, each covering a different topic from ‘what is higher education study?’ through to ‘a day in the life of a university student’. There are opportunities for pupils to complete tasks online, ask questions and win fantastic prizes such as Apple Airpods and Amazon Vouchers.
