Diploma Distinctions!

This week, we received some external examination results and had an external moderator in school to assess the portfolios for some of our diploma subjects in the Sixth Form. We are delighted to announce that several distinction grades were attained by our students in both examinations and portfolios. The grade of distinction is equivalent to an A grade at A Level. Congratulations to our Health and Social Care and Business Studies students on an excellent set of results.

Easter eggs for EACH

Easter is nearly here and I am helping to collect Easter eggs for children at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. If you would like to help me, please bring an Easter egg to Reception by Friday March 15th and I will make sure it gets to a child at the hospice. If you prefer, you could donate £1 instead and I will use this money to buy an egg on your behalf. Let’s put a smile on the face of a child less fortunate than us at this special time of year. Thank you.

Rosamaria, Year 11

IELTS Success

Last week Kelly in Year 13 received her IELTS result (the International English Language Testing System). This qualification is a university entrance requirement for students with English as an additional language. Kelly achieved a grade of 6.5 which is higher than the 6.0 required by most universities. Kelly aims to study business and marketing at either the University of Leeds or the University of Surrey. We would like to congratulate Kelly on her excellent IELTS result.
