Happy New Year to all our families and a warm welcome back to the new term.

This is a crucial term for Year 11 and 13 in the lead up to the summer exams. Traditionally, students who start to build a routine of revision in addition to the extended learning tasks set by their teachers, make a significant amount of progress in the 12 weeks we have before the Easter holidays. The mock exams provide a useful source of feedback for students to focus their efforts and this is a time when young people require resilience to continue to strive for their best. Supportive and encouraging discussion at home can make a tremendous difference to easing some of the pressure and concern felt by students. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Form Tutor or Head of Year if you feel they require additional support.

I am delighted to let you now that the GO 4 Schools App is now available for parents and students. You will shortly be receiving a letter which explains the information that is available through the app as well as how to access it. I know that many parents have said that they would like this facility and I hope you will find it convenient and helpful.
