Head of Sixth Form’s message
I hope that you had a restful half term and were able to step away from your computers and spend time together as families. The second half of the term has started well with a good blend of live lessons, recordings and written work all taking place. Year 12 and 13 tutors continue to check in weekly with their tutees- it is good to hear students’ news and the sessions are making a real difference helping us to stay connected. I urge all students to continue to be disciplined and work hard. I know that this is difficult at times and it has certainly been a steep learning curve for everyone. We have all needed great resilience and added to our skills in communication, independence and time management during this lockdown.
We will be reminding students about staying positive and recording the important skills they are developing on their CVs and personal statements when we start our unit of work on “looking ahead” and careers later this term.
Like you, we heard the recent announcement from the Prime Minister about his route to ease restrictions, so we can now plan for the return of students into school and college. You should have received a letter from Mrs Potter containing details of the plan for students to return to college safely. We have put together some tips for you below, which we urge you to follow to ensure a successful and enjoyable return to college. The staff and the sixth form are more than ready to receive students back to make the building into a lively, thriving college once more. I look forward to seeing you all very soon.
