Dates for your diary
We have had 94 UCAS applications this academic year. Of those 94 students, 77 have heard from one or more of their chosen university choices. Students have been offered unconditional and conditional places, which then leaves them with the choice of which university to choose. I am aware that there have been some rejections and we are supporting them through this. If you, as a parent, would like to discuss this process then please contact at Sixthform@tahs.org.uk
Bad Weather Procedures
As the forecast is getting, how shall we say, a bit fresher!!! We thought it prudent to remind you of the bad weather procedures in place. Please see the full procedure in place under this link:
This week’s Science Students of the Week selected by Mrs Pavey are:
Dylan McNair for his contributions to the chemistry lessons this week
Cole Moody for his progress in physics
Callum Stockbridge for achievement in physics
Freya Bettaney for her consistent positive attitude in physics and willingness to try
Libby Fry and Aaron Gwynne for their achievements in the physics mock exam
We would like to invite all parents and carers to complete a Parent View online questionnaire. Parent View allows you to feedback on your child’s experiences at Thomas Alleyne’s High School. The questionnaire has 12 questions and is used by the school to identify what we are doing well and what we need to work on. Parents and carers will need to register on the website in order to complete the questionnaire. If parents or carers have any queries or questions regarding the questionnaire, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Year 9 Future Intentions
Year 9 students have reached the point in the year where they will be asked to decide which subjects they would like to study in Years 10 and 11 for their GCSE’s. The Year 9 options process will begin a series of information events designed to inform parents and students of what we offer. The first parent event will be the Future Intentions Evening on Thursday 7th February from 6pm till 8pm. This evening will involve a presentation in the theatre on the option subjects available to students and how the options process works. The evening also includes the Future Intentions Fair that will have over 40 employers and representatives from universities and colleges. This is open to students in all years but will allow Yr9 students and parents to discuss the option subjects with Heads of Departments. In the run up to this event we would encourage parents and carers to start talking to your child about their future and what their aspirations are.
Year 11 Geography
With just 17 weeks until the first GCSE Geography exam, we would like to take the opportunity of reminding parents of where you and your child can access information about the Geography exams and what makes a good geography answer! If you have any questions about the Geography exams, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
