GCSE and A-level Information

To further support our current Year 10 and 12 students with their respective studies, we have published a list of current GCSE and A-level examination boards, specification codes and recommended revision resources. Please note that this has been collated based upon the status quo; and may be subject to change as the courses develop. A copy of this can be found here on the school website.

Support

Another reminder that for those who require support, there are resources available on the ‘school communication’ section of our website (including a home study guide, blank and exemplar work)

Dear students and parents,

I hope you and your families continue to be well. We are fast approaching our final Phase of the academic year; with Phase 7 running from Monday 6 to Tuesday 21July.

We will continue to uphold high standards of work set by staff to best support the learning of students. Despite this being the final Phase and energy levels waning, we are committed to minimising any ‘lost learning’ as a result of this situation, to best support the education of our students. Therefore, we are asking for their continued diligence and your continued support for a final twelve school days, before everyone can have a much needed six-week break in the summer.

We will continue to upload work plans via Microsoft Teams (Mr Harris continues to make support materials for students), and we continue to see an increase in online TLA methods, including some Teams meetings and lessons. For those students involved in any Teams lessons, guidance is attached, by which students and staff must adhere to maximise effectiveness and safeguarding. Please note that these Teams sessions will usually be to supplement other work that teachers are sending students to explain a specific concept, and will not normally be a traditional ‘lesson’ as experienced at school. Teachers will send students an invite to join the meeting at least two days prior to it starting, and students must ensure they have read the attached procedures prior to the lesson.

May I finish by taking this opportunity to sincerely thank all students, parents and staff, on behalf of all the SLT, for all of the hard work invested in making online TLA so successful. Given the circumstances, we can all be extremely proud of the educational experience students have engaged with in the last few months. On 23rd March we had no idea we would be where we are today; but by everyone pulling together we have seen students achieving well, especially in comparison to other students and schools nationally, which is testament to the efforts of the entire SGS community.

 

Wishing you a safe and productive Phase 7, prior to a well-earned summer break.

Mr D Endersbee

Assistant Headteacher i/c Teaching and Learning
