Parent Bulletin

Keep up to date with what’s going on at the College. This Bulletin will be regularly updated with key dates and information we think parents need to know.

15/03/18: Year 12 Parents’ Evenings are on Thursday 22 and Tuesday 27 March. Students should already have booked appointments with teachers for parents. If you have any queries, please call the College’s Central Admin Team on 0121 704 2581.

09/03/18: Please be aware that the timetable is changing for Year 13 students from 16 April onwards (or earlier for some subjects). Afternoon lessons are being restructured to allow for greater intervention time in the build-up to examinations. Standard teaching time will run from 1.15 – 3.30pm, with a 15-minute break in the middle. The final half hour will be set aside for individualised study. For some students, this may mean independent study or revision, but for most it will involve compulsory workshops with teachers to maximise their progress. All students will be expected to remain available until 4.00pm should their teachers deem their attendance at these workshops as necessary for their development. This new structure will come into force for Year 12 students from 16 May (following the completion of Year 12 examinations). A new timetable will be in place for September. More information is available here.

01/03/18: College will be closed on Friday 2 March due to inclement weather. Students should check Moodle for any work set and follow social media for any further updates.

26/02/18: Please be aware, there is the possibility of snow this week. It is the College’s policy to remain open as long as it is safe to do so. However, if it is deemed necessary to close, this information will go up on the College website homepage and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Please read our Inclement Weather Policy for more information.

19/02/18: From Monday 26 February – Friday 16 March inclusive we will be asking parents for their views. Look out for an email with a link to an online survey next week.

13/02/18: It is half-term next week and there are no lessons from Monday 19 – Friday 23 February inclusive. Parents can keep up-to-date with important College dates, including Term Dates, Parents Evenings dates, Staff Developments Days and other days when there are no lessons, by viewing the Dates for your Diary page.

06/02/18: Friday 9 February is the College’s deadline for Exam and resit entries – see the Exam Service page of the website or call the Exams Office on 0121 704 2581 for more advice.

05/02/18: Don’t forget, parents can download a copy of the Handbook for Parents from the website. Please note, the PDF downloads are not available to those using Microsoft Edge – please use a different browser or email Marketing to get a copy emailed to you.
