4. What matters is how you use these grades. Exam grades measure performance and NOT potential.
5. You are not going to be the lost generation. Instead, you will be the generation that changes society for the better.
2. You are developing and enhancing your knowledge and skills for the future and not just a set of assessments.
3. Your attitude and hard work will define how you approach post 16/18 education.
Thank you to those students and families who attended tonight's remote meetings. As always, your support is very much appreciated. These are the key messages shared with our students:
1. Your effort and attitude towards your studies in the final months really matters
Due to the heavy snowfall and freezing overnight temperatures, we have made the decision to close the Academy to all students and staff tomorrow. As a result, all lessons will be delivered remotely tomorrow. Thank you for your understanding #weareEDA
