COVID 19 School closure: latest information for parents of students in year 11

We are changing our approach to keeping you up to date. This information will be updated regularly. When it is updated you will be sent an e-mail and a text with a link to this page.

This page was updated on Thursday 14th May 2020.

This information is for parents of students in year 11. Parents of students in years 7 to 10 and year 6 who will join the school in September should see the separate information for those groups.


Dear Parents and students,

We hope that you have found the information we sent about the processes for GCSE grading helpful and reassuring. We will continue to send you any updates as soon as we receive them. The information we have is that GCSE grades will be released to students on Thursday 20th August and we will send you further information on how results will be released nearer to the time.

Throughout your child’s time with us we have stressed that learning is a lifelong journey. We would encourage your child to make use of the resources highlighted below to assist them in preparing for the next stage of their education. Our careers team have put together a really useful document that contains the latest updates from local colleges and links to further online training and higher education providers. Please do take the time to read through this. If you or your child need further support please do contact our careers team; they are here to help and can provide you with a wealth of information and advice.

We wish you all the best and trust you are staying safe and well.

Simon Grieves
