Period 6 For Year 10 From September 2021

Dear Parents / Carers

Following a recent consultation with stakeholders I writing to give you advance notice that the current Year 9, from September 2021, will be having an additional Period 6 added to their Year 10 timetable.  This will be an extra lesson on Monday and Tuesday 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 model of 3 nights each week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  This for Year 11 has been in place for the last 3 years.

Year 10 students will receive timetabled small group tuition, which will be set for approximately 8-10 week 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 2021 Period 6 on Monday and Tuesday will be a compulsory part of the Year 10’s education and any absence will be recorded appropriately.  

Yours sincerely

Phill Quirk
Headteacher
