Further information has been sent to students directly.
We are looking forward to welcoming our staff and students back to the College and would like to thank all of our teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication to remote learning as well as congratulating our students for their adaptability and resilience in the face of these trying times.
We will be offering Lateral Flow Testing to all students and staff returning to College, to identify Covid 19 in those people who are asymptomatic. Students will self-administer the test under the supervision of College staff and volunteers. More information will be sent to students and parents, along with details on students providing consent to being tested.
On the 25th February the Government announced that A Level exams will not take place in England, however students will be assessed by their teachers. Teachers will be given clear guidance on using a range of evidence to assess students, including coursework and optional questions from exam boards that teachers can use.
Grades will be assessed by teachers and tutors and exams for occupational courses, which lead directly to employment, will still take place in line with public health measures. Alternative arrangements will be made for those who cannot access the assessments.
All A Level and Vocational students will only be assessed on completed and future work, so students should continue to study and engage. There will be checks by schools, colleges and awarding organisations to ensure fairness for all. Every student will have the right to appeal their grade.
All grades will be announced during the week of the 9th August
