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.

18/09/19: Next Monday (23 September) is the College’s internal application deadline for students applying for Oxbridge, Medicine, Veterinary Science or Dentistry. Any Year 13 students who is looking to make such an application is asked to ensure they have completed their UCAS application and liaised with their academic coach to ensure references can be completed in time for the UCAS deadline for competitive courses. All other Year 13 students making a UCAS application have until 11 November to get their applications completed. These are not official UCAS deadlines, but exist to ensure staff at the College have time to get all references done to meet the official UCAS deadlines.

12/09/19: We’re coming to the end of the first week of lessons and students should now have ironed out any timetable problems they might have had. If any student still has queries they should go to Student Reception (next to Main Reception in Hampton Building) to get them resolved.

05/09/19: New Year 12 students are in College for Induction today and tomorrow. This is a compulsory part of their enrolment, as it ensures we can get them set up on the IT network and they can get their introduction to being a student at this College. Timetables will be available on Tyber by 6.00pm on Sunday 8 September and lessons will start on Monday 9 September. Students will not know if they have a 9.00am lesson unless they login to Tyber and check their timetable. Any student with queries about their timetable is asked to come into College at 8.30am on Monday 9 September and go to the Help Desk so this can be resolved before lessons start at 9.00am.

02/09/19: Monday 2 September is a Staff Training Day. We are also completing late enrolment for Year 12 students. Year 13 students start their lessons on Wednesday 4 September and the timetable for this will be on Tyber on Tuesday. There are no Year 13 lessons on Thursday 5 or Friday 6 September due to Year 12 induction taking place. There are also no Year 13 lessons on Monday 9 September as we settle the new Year 12 students in for their first lessons, so Year 13 learning will resume on Tuesday 10 September.

08/08/19: A level Results Day is on Thursday 15 August. Results will be available on Tyber from 6.00am. Hopefully students have got the grades they need for their university or higher apprenticeship destination. However, those that need help can take advantage of the College’s Results Support Service in the Learning Resource Centre from 8.30am. Students wanting advice from a senior manager should come into College rather than phoning. A selection of local universities will be present in the LRC to offer help with Clearing.

17/07/19: Enrolment into Year 13 is currently open on Tyber. We ask that all students complete their re-enrolment by 22 August 2019.
