Weekly Update 35 & 36

Cambridge IGCSE and AS level tests finished!!!–From Mark Goodman

The teachers and School Management Team are pleased to announce that Year 11 and 12 students have now completed their Cambridge IGCSE and AS level tests. These tests are administered at the same time in over 160 different countries over a period of 2 months. We are proud of the way our students prepared and conducted themselves during the grueling test period and look forwards to another year of success when the results are published in August.

Pick Up News

It is currently difficult for parents to see and call their children from their cars in the waiting area and this slows down the flow of traffic after school. We have installed a PA system in the car park and football pitch which will allow us to call out the names of the students as parents drive in. This will allow the teachers on duty to help find and prepare the child being picked up. We will be giving out cards with student’s names and what class they are in printed in bold letters for parents to place on the front of their car dashboard when driving into the school in the afternoon. We now have a team of 3 staff monitoring the waiting area and 2 staff monitoring the entrance and exit to the school to ensure that this procedure runs smoothly.

Please pick up your child’s name card from your Homeroom teacher and be sure to have it placed on your dashboard so that we can start this procedure.

Welcome new staff to HeadStart!
