3rd July 2020
We are offering to students in Years 10 and Year 12 for weeks beginning 20th and 27th of July 2020.
The purpose of the programme is to give our examination groups further support due to the time missed earlier in the academic year. We are incredibly fortunate that some of our fantastic staff have volunteered their time to deliver this programme. As this programme is running entirely on a voluntary basis, we are not able to offer all subjects. In addition, there are some occasions whereby GCSE groups have needed to be merged together to enable all students to receive as many sessions as possible. Furthermore, where our A Level subjects are delivered by multiple teachers, I have added a session with each teacher where possible. I have outlined below where classes have been merged for GCSE and where multiple sessions have been organised for A Level.
Merged GCSE Subjects
- RE – all classes are merged together.
- History – two classes have merged together. 10B and 10C have been merged together and 10A1 and 10A2 have been merged together.
- Mathematics – sets 1 and 2 are merged together and sets 3 and 4 are merged together.
- Business Studies – two GCSE classes have been merged together.
- English – sets 1,2 and 3 are merged and sets 4, 5 and 6 are merged together.
- Drama – 10B and 10C are merged together.
A Level Multiple Teacher Subjects
Mathematics – there are two sessions. One with Miss Groves and one with Mr Conolly.
- Physical Education – there are two sessions. One with Mr Foster and one with Mrs Heighway.
- Geography – there are two sessions. One with Mr Hall and one with Miss Fisher.
- Philosophy and Ethics – there are three sessions. Two with Mr Shipman and one with Mrs Freeman.
The Summer School Programme will be delivered via the Microsoft Teams platform. Throughout this last week, Year 10 students have received a tutorial on how the platform works, our online expectations, how to access the lessons and each student has been issued with a hard copy of a student support guide. In addition, our school website contains guidance which can be located in the ‘Student IT Support’ tab.
Mr Briggs will be communicating directly with the Sixth Form students to outline the access process and our online expectations. There is a chat function within this platform and this is to be used sensibly as part of your child’s learning experience. It is an opportunity to give and receive feedback on learning. Any misuse of this chat function will result in students being removed from the Summer School Programme
