Period 6 for Year 10 from Sept 2022

I am writing to give you advance notice that the current Year 9, from September 2022, will replicate our current Year 10 by having an additional Period 6 added to their Year 10 timetable. This will be an extra lesson on Tuesday and Wednesday each week. This will be known as Period 6 and will run until 3.45pm. The year after when students are in Year 11, they are likely to follow the same model of 2 nights each week. This has been in place for Year 11 for the last 4 years.
Year 10 students will receive timetabled small group tuition, which will be set for approximately 5-6week blocks, reviewed, and changed as necessary. This will not be just an extra lesson. It is aimed at targeting areas that need support and improvement. Additionally, periodically we may identify some Year 10 students for support with study skills, revision planning and other bespoke areas outside of normal subjects offered.
From September 2022 Period 6 on Tuesday and Wednesday will be a compulsory part of the Year 10’s education and any absence will be recorded appropriately.

Yours sincerely
Phill Quirk
Headteacher
