Changes to Trent Barton’s ‘Sevens’ service from Monday 13 May to Friday 29 June 2019

We have been notified by a member of the public that there are signs in the Holbrook area regarding changes to the Trent Barton Sevens services over the coming weeks.  The signs state that from Monday 13 May to Friday 29 June 2019, the Sevens service will no longer be stopping at Southfield House, Autism Centre, Holbrook Church and Spotted Cow.  This will affect the 7.1 service which some of our students use.

Year 12 End of Year Assessments

The end of year assessments for Year 12 will take place between FRIDAY 28 JUNE and FRIDAY 5 JULY 2019 (inclusive dates)  and will comprise of a maximum of two papers per subject.  There will be no timetabled lessons for Year 12 students during the assessment window.
Students will not receive any study time in advance of the assessment window although Year 12  teachers may choose to incorporate ‘revision sessions’ into their usual timetabled lessons during the preceding weeks.  The assessment results will be used internally by the school to analyse student performance.  Grades will be shared with students at the start of Year 13.  In the event of poor performance, the data may be used to instigate an intervention plan for a student as part of the school’s Wave Intervention System.  However, no student will be required to drop a course purely based on poor performance in their end of year assessment.
Please note that Year 12 students taking Maths or Further Maths will not have an in-school end of year assessment as they will be taking external examinations in this subject.  The dates for these exams will be shard with students via their subject teachers.
