I hope that you and your families are safe and well.
We are delighted with way Year 12 students have settled into their academic studies and to life in our Sixth Form community.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents/carers that Year 12 students will begin their first set of mock exams on Monday 6th December. We firmly believe that having these mock exams will have a positive effect on focusing students’ minds as well as giving them valuable experience of formal examinations.
Students have been issued their timetables and should be using their time wisely in College (study periods and period 2 sessions) to prepare for the exams so they can perform to the best of their ability. The study room is available to students before and after College where they can study in a quiet environment.
The mock exams will provide teaching staff with up to date information regarding students’ current progress and what support may be needed over the coming months.
Having experienced such a challenging time in Year 11, I must commend our Year 12 students for their resilience, hard work and positive attitude throughout this term, and I look forward to working with them this year and next as they prepare for their A level exams and next steps beyond St Bede’s.
If you wish to discuss the exams or any other issues, please do not hesitate to contact me at College.
Director of Sixth Form
