The information below has been reiterated to Year 11 students this week. This is for reference and just in case clarification is needed:


The uniform expectations for exams remain the same. Students must have either a school sweater or blazer. Your new hoodie is not a replacement for that but you may wear the hoodie in school over your sweater or blazer.

Attendance in school:

As instructed on several occasions and in a letter, attendance to exams, revision sessions and lessons in subjects not yet examined is compulsory. Exceptions to this are only permitted by senior staff. Some individuals are on an alternative timetable which has been individually arranged. Failure to follow this attendance instruction will result in being withdrawn from the Prom as has been communicated to you all.

Signing In:

Students must sign in and out of the main office at all times except for the days when they are attending exams as a register is taken in the exam room. This is especially important on days when students are leaving to return later in the day.

 Private Study in school:

Students who want to remain in school to complete private study during the periods when the subject lesson has been examined or it is not an examined subject (games, cwl, careers) may report to the Library where they can complete silent personal revision. This will be supervised by Mrs Moore and a subject teacher. If students do not comply with personal silent study they will be asked to leave and will have to leave the site and return for any scheduled exams/lessons/revision sessions later in the day.

If you are signing out to return later, possibly going into the village or nearby areas, please ensure you continue with the respectful good behaviour that we expect.

Shirt Signing:

It is a tradition to bring in shirts to sign for each other and that can take placeafter the Chemistry revision session on 13th June (pd3) at lunchtime. Not before please. For those who will be in Mrs Ashburner’s History pd5 and Mr Jackson’s RM pd5, please bring a clean shirt to wear.

For all other students you will be leaving at lunch but if staying to study, a clean shirt must be brought.


Attendance and conduct throughout the exams so far has been great and we are confident it will continue. Please ensure you turn up for all revision sessions and relevant lessons. Staff will be expecting you.
