Year 11 News - Term 2
Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you to all staff, students and parents that have responded to working in new ways. In particular the students that are adapting the way that they work and are showing the positivity, respect, responsibility and readiness that is expected of GPUTC students.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all that attended the Y11 Raising Aspiration evening. I hope that you went away with all of the information needed to support your child and took away further information about the 6th form offer that is available from GPUTC. If your child are still undecided about their next steps and are considering GPUTC 6th form please get in touch.
The general behaviour and response from students in undertaking their March mock exams was exceptional, especially in the challenging circumstances.
Moving forward it has been more important than ever to continue to support students through this year and this is being achieved through weekly contact through mentors and support in completing coursework remotely. To supplement this A-level work is now being provided for students to enable them to continue their studies remotely.
I understand this is a stressful time; the advice right now is to keep working and to wait for further information from the government.
Ofqual (the board in charge of exams) have advised us that they are currently working with the Department for Education in light of the decision made to cancel all summer examinations. They will be providing more information to schools as soon as possible, but at this stage we do not know how the exam boards will ask us to predict your grades. We will be doing everything we can to ensure you get the grades you’ve worked hard for but we’re not currently able to send out predicted grades to any student until we know more about how your grades will be calculated.
Once this information is known we will share it with students and parents.
I would like to say a big thank you to all that have continued to support GPUTC and your child in this challenging time, it is an absolute delight to hear from staff the positive response so many students have made in adapting to new routines and ways of learning.
