Dear Parent Guardian,
I apologise to everyone we had to send away this morning from the BTEC revision session. The exam boards contacted us last night about the forthcoming exams and as part of that statement said;
“Schools and colleges can continue with the vocational and technical exams … where they judge it right to do so.”
We made the difficult decision this morning that we did not feel it was safe to hold these exams in a full national lockdown, and cancelled the forthcoming revision sessions and exams. Many of the students will be disappointed and may feel that their hard work in preparing for this exam was wasted, can I assure them that any time learning is never wasted, and that they should continue in their studies, and fully participate in online learning. I would also assure you that they will not be in a position of disadvantage because of not sitting this exam.
Please do not come into school for your exam on Monday, school will remain closed until further notice.
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.
Mr K Hodgson
