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.

21/01/18: Higher Education Finance talks for the parents of Year 13 students take place on Wednesday 31 January. Contact the Central Admin Office on 0121 704 2581 for more information about booking a place.

15/01/18: Today is the official UCAS deadline. The College’s earlier deadline has ensured that the vast majority of students get their applications in well ahead of this deadline and those students are now waiting to hear back as to whether they have offers or not. Check out the UCAS FAQ for more information or contact your son/daughter’s academic coach if you have questions.

09/01/18: Academic Coaching seminars are coming up for both Year 12 and Year 13 students and attendance is compulsory. Year 13 seminars take place in the week commencing 22 January and will focus on next steps after College, including Higher Education and Student Finance. Year 12 seminars take place in the week commencing 29 January and focus on Careers. Students can check the date, time and room their seminars take place on Tyber.

03/01/18: Happy New Year! Spring Term has started today. Lessons take place for all students this week. On Monday 8 January, we are holding an Interview Day for new applicants. Lessons continue as normal for all Year 12 students and all BTEC students (Year 12 and Year 13). However, there are no Year 13 A level lessons during the week of 8 January, while they sit mock exams.

18/12/17: Mock exams take place for Year 13 A level students during the week commencing 8 January 2017. During this week, Year 13 students have no lessons but Year 12 students and all BTEC students (both years) have lessons as normal. Mock exam timetables are available for students to view on Tyber. Mock exam results will be available on Monday 5 February. These exams are excellent preparation for the real thing in the summer and we urge all students to take them seriously and make sure they are revising for them over the Christmas/New Year holidays.

13/12/17: The College was closed on Monday 11 & Tuesday 12 December due to inclement weather, but is open on Wednesday 13 December. The College campus car park and paths has been cleared of snow and public transport is largely back to normal. See our Inclement Weather Policy for more information.
